    Default Vetgat Toere 2019 - The Absent Friends Toere

    Northern Cape or Botswana section? Since I'm now living in the Northern Cape I guess its good to promote my new home province.

    Vetgat Toere proudly present their 2019 trip report, or at least the start of it.

    As always hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the trip.

    Gasman , please stop sending me WhatsApps now. I've got a water pump to finish building

    Keith and co, its good to have "The Tight Apertures'' back and am looking forward to the stories!
    To your Absent Friends, I am sure they would have loved to be there.

    Part 2 in what must be for me at least, record time. Just back from the KTP and then I get to spend a day out on Oograbies Wes servicing camera traps. I must have been a real good guy in a past life and this is the reward

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Thanks Keith.
    Thanks for taking the time and trouble to share your trip with all of us.
    Great reading and a fantastic way to start the day while we (here in the deep south) are between trips.

    Sorry folks, even by my standards I'm drawing this out.

    Life on the Wes Kus is busy, not only am I learning to be a Landy mechanic I'm also, so it seems, in an apprenticeship for agricultural irrigation systems, but those are stories for another day.

    Finally we hit the trail, or maybe the trail hit us. No long term damage to either ego's or vehicles but that was a tough days drive.
