    If you can follow the directions from a spotter, then you could do the nek no problem. It remains your choice, and you remain the driver of the vehicle.The whole idea is to get the soft roader to join as well.

The tyre dealer assured me they were "better" than the Bridgestones. But by no means are they off-road or even A/T tyres, in my limited opinion. In hindsight I should probably have coughed up a few more bucks and seen what I could get for those rims - I went cheap Without whining too much about my cash-flow, the intention was always to get a full set of 18-inch rims with proper A/T tyres before venturing too far off the tar. I have no doubt whatsoever the 'rok itself is more than capable of the type of driving I intend to do - which is definitely NOT any hard-core stuff..If I had better tyres, or was a bit more cash-flush, I would have had no hesitation in tackling Breedt's Nek. And of course that's one of the main reasons for joining the run - to meet members so I can chat with guys that have "been there, done that!'... And learn.

    Hi

    How does this usually work?
    Do you bring your own food?

    Is hole filling allowed on the nek? After the heavy rains, i can only assume significant metal rods protruding by the concrete stormwater pipes.

    The Duster made it with no problems, thus with your ground clearance (which is same as mine I think). Mine is also bog standard with standard tyres. I deflated my tyres a bit (did it without a gauge and found I had deflated to around 1Bar...) and mainly caught my towbar a couple of times.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I have a towbar so I'm sure that will catch. I think ill skip the pass for now until I do the bash plates and 40mm lift around June.

    Pretty sure hole filling is allowed if necessary. Doubt it is required though. We did it a few weeks ago right after some very heavy rains. It's really not a sweat.

    I reckon you can fill holes to your hearts content if youíd like.
    In terms of the metal rods, when we did it three or so weeks back I think there was just one, very obvious place where they were sticking out, so itís not an issue.

    do it at your own pace, donít feel like anyone is pushing you to hurry up, and it will be easy

    Any chance a few of you will keep it up until later in the afternoon? I'm around the area on a game farm but have some responsibilities to attend to until about 14.00. Would've loved to join, perhaps I'll swing by once done to see if there's any stragglers left for a beer and a chat.
