    Default New (!) 4x4 Route

    Moordkuil 4x4 has just re-opened. For anyone who has not done this route before, you have not 4x4ed before
    It is situated between Grootbrak and Kleinbrak. They are opening a permanent tented campsite, normal campsite and later on even a "beauty" spar, so go play and keep swambo happy.
    I will post some photos later on.

    Hi dave

    So the photos? How much for the trail? Grading? Can you go with one vehicle?

    Anyone in the southern cape going there tommorow?

    and later on even a "beauty" spar

    Is this "spar" more beautifull than other spar's? They are expexting a lot of people if they open a spar on a 4x4 trail

    Talking Moordkuil Photo's

    Some fun photos, some very ugly ones and some really nice ones. Moordkuil used to be rated up to a grade 5, they have not opened the full route at this stage, but we will put a little, promise, just a little pressure on them to open the full route.

    Ya, that's the question. At this stage you will need to contact the Kalahari Theater at old Game. They have all the details. I am going to book "the proper" Moordkuil for the FWDCSA and Forum early next year, then we go play properly, maybe vasbyt a little bit.

    Dave,

    Is this route in the Southern Cape?

    PS.: I am just stirring a little bit. Saw Incredible Bob this weekend. I just had to ask the question. Forgiveness please.

    Jean, mmmmmm, yip it is the route.
    Directions:
    If you are in Cape Town, head in an easterly direction. If reaching a really windy smelly city, turn around, you are in PE.
    If you live in a big windy smelly city like PE, head in an westerly direction, if you ride into the side of a big mountain and feel you need a Pajero to get over, you have gone tooo far, turn around.
    If you are in a MASSIVE smelly big ugly city like JHB, head in a southerly direction. If you reach ice and feel the time has come to buy an artic Hilux, turn around, you have gone tooooooo far

    Now using a basic school mathmatics, bisect all three lines using Einstein's theory of Relativility and ohms law, if still not sure ask the local cafe' owner or SWAMBO the simple question ...how do I get to GEORGE on the 4th June

    Try slowing down once in a while
    and soak up your surroundings.
    You might just surprise yourself.
