    Default Battle of the Dunes

    If you have NOT visited Lauberville, then you haven't driven dunes....dunes just doesn't say it, DUNES don't even describe it!!!

    When an experienced offroader takes out a chair, and finishes two sigarettes before gaining enough guts to take on a little hill, then you know this is slightly different to what we're used to.

    Google "Battle of the Dunes"....

    I'll post some pics when I'm back. Yesterday afternoon I made a comment that I know of only ONE thing more lekker than this.....now I'm starting to doubt my priorities...8)

    Owen, I've drifted to the point where my vehicle totally disappeared in the cloud of dust.....several times.

    Some of the dunes you approuch at highway speed, ans still you don't get to the top. Just back to camp after conquiring the single most difficult dune obstacle I've ever seen. You hit the bottom at 120km/h, one third up, and you snapchange one gear back....your foot never leaves the excellerator...last time I saw anybody do that was Dietrich at Atlantis. Not too far further you go back another gear. Against the dune you turn sharp right into a little "cliff", foot still flat....that's if you got there in the first place, and aren't busy reversing...if you DO get to tthe top, you need enough momentum to carry you over another rather testing step.

    This is serious, serious, serious fun.

    A deffinate MUST if you keep a "TO DO" list.....

    ..Don sal se "Laat sak jou storie"

    Die Atlantis manne sal hierdie duine geniet. Frans, Hein, Neil etc etc etc....Julle manne MOET hier kom kyk.

    Ons maak klaar vandag.....en oppad duine toe was die radios maar stil. In afrikaans se ons daar was so 'n sombere atmosfeer. Ek ry more oggend met 'n swaar hart hier weg.

    Gelukkig het ek 'n oulike blondekoppie wat my mooi sal troos....
