    Not considering De Wildt? We were throwing around that idea for Monday/Sunday

    Sunday is out for me, plans have changed. Was at de Wild recently, so not overly keen on going again.

    We're planning to go to De Wildt's new trail on Nov 4, 2017 - why not join?

    How will a stock fortuner handle ? Iím skeptical of going to places Iíve never been before.

    Iíve done Hennops before and will happily go back.

    Hmm. I'm going because I've never driven the new De Wildt route, but by the looks of it, it's not a trivial trail.

    If your fortuner is really stock - incl. tyre sizes etc, chances are the trail is out of reach. But an option is to come and take a look, and if it's too bad, just drive the rest of De Wildt, which is, for the most part, really chilled.

    I'm sure somebody who's driven it will chime in quick enough.

    I guess it all depends on your skill level, and willingness to take on damage...

    Thanks Dawid, Iíll definitely make an effort to be there. Iíll sus out the other tunaís and see how they do. Even if I donít do any trails itís fun to watch others

    We ended up going the past sunday, and had good fun. Still uploading videos, but here is an idea of the territory:



    (P.S. The video is still busy processing (cropping) on Youtube, so if it looks like nothing is happening, skip to 00:02:30)

    The above doesn't even show the difficult parts yet. A stock fortuner would never make De Wildt's "Brandpad" trail - but can have good fun on the normal trail.
