    Talking What did you do this weekend???

    Hey all

    Would be nice to hear about what you did this weekend, whether it was a trail, a route or a trip to the carwash!

    And to make it interesting make sure you post plenty of juicy pics!

    I'll go first.

    My partner and I decided to visit Hennops this Sunday just passed(17Feb0. It was our second outing ever on a 4x4 trail and we had an absolute blast! Or weapon of choice was a stock Cherokee 3.7 V6 and I must say that she did us proud. She did complain a bit though when she scraped a few(too many) times. But no serious damage done. Here are some pics







    Highlight of the day was catching up with the gang from the Isuzu Offroad Club. They immediately spotted that we were as green as hills as far as 4x4'ing goes and promptly offered for us to tag along! Needless to say we jumped at the chance and spent the rest of the afternoon trailing these guys and managing to keep up 75% of the time! One spot where we definately decided to go safe was the nasty rocky climb, the safety exit was preferred over smashed exhaust and rear diff

    Anyhoo, it's a good thing we did meet up with these guys cause a little while later this happened

    funnily enough we did this obstacle without any problem earlier in the day, but this time we took a different line and ended up wedged in with the only means of exit being at the end of a tow leading from an Isuzu (thx Robert, Jaco and Nico!)


    There were shouts all round of "If you don't get stuck, you're not playing hard enough!".... Great attitude from a great bunch of guys!

    And to lessen the blow of getting in a jam, our rescuer ended up doing this


    Great fun all round, we'll be back....

    So who's next with their weekend story

    You must have run into Johan, Robert, JP, Nico, Jaco........I think they were 16 out at Hennops. Been on a couple of memorable trips with those bloody loonies.

    We camped at De Tronk in the Groot Winterhoek Mountains near Porterville this past weekend. Walked down to Die Hel - not the Gamkaskloof one, obviously! - which is supposed to be the biggest natural pool in the Western Cape. Fantastic place with a beautiful waterfall. There are also some beautiful rock formations along the hiking trail on the way.

    Unfortunately I took most of my photographs with a video camera and I don't have a means of connecting it to the computer yet. Must get a cable...

    Default Chimes

    My son and I went to Chimes on Sunday to test the bighorns, but it had rained and the sand was hard. After driving every path we could find, we decided to return to the big dune and see how far I could get up. The place was packed with quads and bikes and after 2 close shaves with quads called it quits and went home. My son followed me everywhere with his 4x2 clubby, it was only when finding soft sand that he had to use momentum to clear the obstacles, so no real challenge to check the potential of the Bighorns.

    Default Parys Dome Technical Challenge

    Was die naweek in Parys met Die Dome Challenge, moet erken die baan was ongelooflik baie pret met baie "snotty" modder.. maar die organisering was vrot, tussen die ry kon ek darem so paar fotos neem:

    Default Familie...

    Wel, my naweek het so 'n effense aanloop gehad. Laat ek eers vertel...

    (to the English speaking forumites: I am sorry but I cannot really do this justice in English)

    Ek het 'n oom, Petrus, wat maar 'n swerwersiel is/was. Lank gelede was hy getroud met (en geskei van) tant Pop en hulle het 2 seuns gehad, maar dit was voor ek my verstand had - ek skat ek was op daardie stadium so 2 of 3 jaar oud (dws amper 50 jaar gelede), so ek weet toe absoluut niks van tant Pop en die twee seuns nie. Soos ek gesê het, het oom Peet 'n swerwersiel en daar was lang tye wat niemand in die familie wis waar die ou hom bevind nie, dan eendag slaan hy onverwags êrens uit, en kla baiekeer dat die familie hom "weggooi". Die laaste keer wat oom Peet sy seuns gesien het was so 26 jaar terug op my Oupa se begrafnis, sonder dat hulle kontakdetails uitgeruil het

    Nou, so 4 jaar gelede was my Pa-hulle slagoffers van 'n plaasaanval, met gevolg dat ons toe nou na oom Peet beginne soek. My tante spoor hom toe dmv die polisie op Naboomspruit op, en so woon hy darem toe die diens by. Na die diens gesels ek en hy toe en ek kry hom sover om te belowe hy sal my altyd laat weet waar hy hom bevind, sonder dat ons nou mekaar se drumpels hoef deur te trap. So het ons van toe af darem kontak gehou.

    Die mooigeit van die storie is dat sy jongste seun Gerrie toe so twee jaar gelede vir sy ma (tant Pop) sê hy wil sy pa opspoor. Al wat hulle toe kon onthou is dat een van sy pa se broers 'n prokureur is en dat sy naam Riebeeck is. En so beginne hy toe te soek, en hy spoor naderhand vir Riebeeck op, maar die weet nie waar oom Peet hom bevind nie. Wat hy wél toe onthou, was dat ek en oom Peet die ooreenkoms had om met mekaar in kontak te bly, en hy gee toe aan Gerrie mý nommer. Gerrie bel my en ek gee hom sy pa se nommer, met die gevolg dat pa en seuns mekaar na 26 jaar weer te sien gekry het en nou permanent kontak hou. Wat vir my vreemd is, is dat dít nie sou gebeur het as dit nie vir die moord op my Pa-hulle was nie.

    So, nou terug by die naweek - ons het groot familiesaamtrek op Gerrie se plaas gehou met al die niggies en neefs van hier in Gauteng se wêreld, plus Riebeeck (die prokureur-oom) en natuurlik oom Peet-hulle. Dis die 2de keer wat ek vir Gerrie sien (toe hy my bel vir sy pa se tel. nommer het ons mekaar so vlugtig ontmoet), die eerste keer sy ouer broer, dis die eerste keer dat Gerrie die meeste van die res van die familie sien en hulle hom. Nodeloos om te sê het ons lekker gekuier en gekekkel, grappies gemaak, braaivleis gehou en familiebande uitgesort.

    Lekker verby, sê ek julle...
