    Default The 2021 Official 4x4 Community River Trip!!!

    When:
    Friday 6th of August to Monday the 9th of August

    What:
    The trip is a totally self sufficient trip in a riverbed, and you will definitely need a 4x4 with good ground clearance and at least 60 profile tyres.

    Where:
    Klein Letaba and Moletotsi (Details to follow)

    Who:
    Anyone who is part of the 4x4Community with the kit and rig can join - there is a limit of 25 vehicles

    Why:
    Because if you have not done a rivertrip, you have not lived

    Notes:

    • See post number 2 for attendance list
    • See post number 3 for trip information and do's and dont's

    Default The 2021 Official 4x4 Community River Trip!!!

    Trip Itinerary :


    • We meet just outside Giyani at 8h30 on Friday morning the 6th of August.
    • Briefing at 08h45
    • Departure from meeting point is at 9am
    • We enter the river about 10km from the meeting point
    • We aim to make the "Fence" on the first day, but I doubt it, so we will camp where we find a spot after the "Rocks" if need be.
    • If we don't reach the fence the first night we will travel to it the next day, and take the grave road along the fence towards the Molotsotsi, then into the river and as far as we can go until we get a nice camp site.
    • Next morning we head further up the Molotsotsi and go as far as we can (I'm sure you guys can see that this is moldable and could change as we go on in the days.)
    • The final night spend in the Molotsotsi again.
    • Next day the 9th of August, we find an exit and leave for home after breakfast.


    You are free to arrange your trip around the two fixed times, of Friday the 6th and Monday the 9th



    Requirements for the trip:

    • Please bring 2 way radios (Preferably a VHF with ORRA channels, but a UHF like a Bosvark or the like will also work)
    • Recovery kit is essential as well as recovery points
    • Tyre repair kit is essential
    • A good First Aid kit
    • A good spare tyre.
    • Take off your sidesteps please
    • Enough water to drink if you get stuck next to the road if there might be a break down - your own food, and drink
    • Wood, the wood in the river is sometimes depleted so 2 bags for each vehicle please.
    • Braai tools
    • Lights (Not too bright please)
    • Hat. sunblock, insect repellant, good boots (That river sand is abrasive) and all the good outdoor personal stuff.
    • A programmable GPS with T4A maps will be a bonus - I will give co-ordinates and route details in the near future
    • A Tool kit
    • A jack that will work on your vehicle - (Please check if you can lift your vehicle and a wheel from the ground before packing the jack)
    • A wooden block or a jack plate - (This is a riverbed after all)
    • Enough fuel - The closest fuel to us will be more than an hour away, and only at certain points in the river can you exit.
    • Low Range, or a crawler gear is a must, with good ground clearance
    • The terrain is rough with a real danger of damaging your tyres, so if possible please take care to have some good AT tyres on your vehicle of at least a 60% profile...
    • No alcohol to be consumed while travelling please

    Lets hope there is no restrictions this year....

    The Patrol forum will be in the river from 06-10 August.
    Klein Letaba and Moletotsi river will be done.

    We have not decided the starting point yet.

    We might not be such a big group this year as we will be having a 70 year Anniversary trip at Goerapan in September and the commitment for this one is already past 70 Patrols.
