    Default What did you accidentally bring back after a camping trip?

    After a recent trip to the Waterberg I discovered this beautiful rain spider hiding away in my Conqueror. He is now a very happy citizen of Pretoria.

    What interesting things did you accidentally bring back after a camping trip?

    Huge baardskeerder. I have no clue what it is called in English. From Hermanus, but we drove past Baardskeerdersbos.

    Skerpioen al die pad vanaf Ais-Ais na die Kaap in ons grondnet. Twee maande later toe ons weer kamp opslaan in Montagu, dop hy uit met die oopvou van net
    Jammer geen fotos.

    Ons het so 'n paar jaar terug 'n toer gedoen af Kaap se kant toe. Laaste aand voor ons terug draai was dit reŽnerig en ons het oppad ook by mense oorgebly en kon nie weer die tente opslaan, om droog te word, voor ons 'n paar dae later terug in Pretoria kom.

    Toe ek die tent oopvou kom ek af op 'n padda wat daar binne vasgevang geraak met die opvou. Natuurlik ook mooi platgedruk ook. Die paar dae in die son op die roofrack saam met die vogtigheid het sy werk behoorlik gedoen. Noodeloos om te sÍ dat as daar 'n video was van hoe ek die tent oopvou, sou dit waarskeinlik viral gegaan soos ek probeer het om myself bymekaar te hou.

    Does 30kg from mud in the chassis count after returning from Botswana during the rainy season?

    Malaria, many times. An occasional girlfriend and other assorted creatures.
    A wife once upon a time.
    She didn't approve of the one girlfriend. So that was the end of that.
    A dog called Jake.

    Geskeerde tendon, nadat ek in 'n gat getrap het! (Wou te vinnig van 'n vol blaas ontslae raak en nie gekyk waar ek trap nie!) Gelukkig linker voet en ons het met 'n outomatiese Pajero gery. Kon glad nie 'n koppelaar trap nie. Ons was ook nie alleen nie, so die ander manne het my tent opgeslaan en sleepwa gehak! Daar was ook mense met kennis wat die voet kon verbind en dokter vir die pyn! Dit was aan die begin van 'n drie weke trip deur Botswana, Kaudom , Caprivi en Hwange. Ek het die trip voltooi en moes ses weke met 'n moon boot daarna rondloop!

    Hele klompie jare terug het ons deur NamibiŽ getoer. Oppad terug by Peace of Paradise geslaap. Volgende aand hoor ek 'n bloedstollende gil. Vroulief het haar hand in ons dogter(tjie) se tekkie gesit om 'n sokke uit te haal en toe was daar 'n padda in , wat van Peace of Paradize saamgery het. My ore het vir 'n paar dae gesuis!
