    Roadtrip to Bethlehem...left here on Friday @04h35...hit Bethlehem @15h15

    Sorted things and stayed two nights at different friend near Kroonstad.

    Drove down with two vehicles...left Kroonstad @05h30, arriving 17h00. My wife had hard time with this, but she hasn't stopped raving how smooth it drives and how comfy her seating was.

    Fortunately traffic wasn't to bad. Just damn hot thru from Bloem to Graaff Reinet.

    To travel from Fraumersheim to Bethlehem in 10h40m you must have cheated somewhat.
    Expect pictures of your trip to be in the post shortly.

    Recently I travelled from Durban via Bethlehem, Colesberg, George to Cape Town and have pics, fortunately nothing excessive of the "no-admission-of-guilt" variety.

    No cheating involved

    My Hilux gobbles diesel @ 140km/h.

    Needs balance between speed and consumption. Sticking to 120 and then overtaking promptly allows you to maintain a high average across the trip. Take padkos and only stopping for fuel.....

    Fortunately traffic was fairly light to Colesberg and N1 to Winburg not too bad either.

    Couple of new things I will need to learn...

    Coming from a Suzuki SJ at 800kg with SFA to a Rocky at 1660kg and coils and IFS might require some new skills.

    Also from high revving to low revving
