    The Paj was also privileged to be the first to share some sand with Markus and Zelda's new acquisition, their FJ.

    Last year it became an unplanned patient transfer vehicle, at times three times a week 400km round trips to Durban and back. We also found out a wheel chair fits easily in the back. The Blonde and it's occupants looked so out of place in the city as this was something completely new to us.

    To get woken up at 2:30 in the morning and be told ons moet NOU hospitaal toe...arriving in Durban as the birds start waking up. Again, get in and drive and worry about other things.

    An attempt at an Mfolozi GR day trip, cut short as Youngest was just too weak and wanted to go home. As always, the Paj is somewhere in the background.

    The precious cargo was always returned safely home. It was a terrifying time from Durban visits, the Pajero made the travelling safe and worry free.

    After a trip in a hired platkar we had to do, the Youngest said she missed the Paj. And "pappa ek wil net met die Pajero ry ek hou nie van daai ander kar nie!" was her comment.

    One of the many, just got home after a week away evenings, the Pajero again is there. And by the way, this is now not my car anymore. If you want trouble ask for the keys..you get dagger filled stares..and you will be physically harmed. So passop.

    On the way to a very fancy South African National Blood Services thing The Blonde was guest speaker at. The Paj fits in perfectly with formal stuff too.

    Ditto Chris, ons kan nie wag nie. Ons en Markus en Zelda sou die jaar ook Kalahari toe gegaan het, daai trip is ook uitgestel.

    Mooi fotos Riaan, dankie dat jy met ons deel. Ek het 'n 2008 Pajero en die familie is mal daaroor. Dit het ons ook al baie plekke geneem sonder enige moeilikheid. 245,000km op die clocks.

    Mag julle nog baie trips in jul Pajero geniet.

    Aag Riaan, dit is 'n lekker Thread. It's different when you know the car and know the people. Thanks for sharing!
