    Was an awesome day out with friends! Lots of new obstacles and ditches that Attie had lined up for us. We even had a Nissan without difflock joining us. Needless to say, he kept up with the Jeeps, although he got stuck a few times.

    We couldn't do the island as water levels were to high, but we did manage to do plenty of new tracks and obstacles!

    Here is a quick video of the day I sommer edited on my phone whilst having a cold one in Attie's pub.

    No vehicle was damaged during the day.

    Enjoy!

    For those who would like to explore At Se Gat: Attie has confirmed that water levels are low and therefor the island route is accessible. It's a nice piece of trail with plenty of possible side tracks. The recent floods have really leveled the entire riverbed with fine white sand in some areas, making this route fairly easy to traverse more than ever before. I really enjoyed the recent outing and particularly this part of the trail.

    He has also constructed a new river crossing which can easily be done in most standard 4x4s. There are many new obstacles suitable for a variety of vehicles and best of all you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery and picnic spots along the riverside.

    If the videos I have posted create the impression that this place is only for hardcore 4x4s, I apologize! I only tend to spend time videoing the more challenging parts of the trail instead of capturing the other scenic routes. Over the past few months the entire trail has settled quite nicely and on some recent outings I was accompanied by various standard vehicles that joined in on the fun without any damage.

    Maybe I should arrange a group of standard vehicles and put together a "mild video" of the trail..

    If you are looking for something new and different, definitely go check out At Se Gat!

    Johan, has he finished blasting the top road?
    IFS is like a swambo, soft, sexy and expensive!

    Apparently I need to make the airplane noises like mommy does when I try to spoon feed you the info..

    Not sure which part of the road you are referring to and when last you were there. I think he has done what he wanted to do some time ago already. The mountain now has three different routes to the top and at the top there are at least 3 obstacles to keep you busy.

    Check out the video I have posted to see one of the obstacles on the top (where the Cruiser without diff-locks battled a bit). A rear diff-lock will almost let you crawl through there, but without a diff-lock, it could easily be a struggle.

    Johan, last time a group of people were there they complained about getting stuck, a lot of recoveries and some damage... Is this still the case or has it calmed a bit...?

    I'm asking because I'm thinking of taking some friends there on the 25th... but he has a brand new car... so I don't want him to damage it...

    What do you suggest? Remember its not a Wrangler...

    Andrew, the entire trail has indeed settled down a lot. My brother took his new Hilux there the other day and did most of the trail. Having said this, At Se Gat is not the tame De Wildt or Hennops most people know. In the past, people that went there assumed that the trail is tame and didn't even bother to walk parts of it first in order to determine the correct line to take for the vehicle they drive.

    What makes At Se Gat so unique and different in many ways, is that it is more technical than other trails that have settled over the years because of the tens of thousands of vehicles that have done it.

    When you get to some obstacles at At Se Gat, you might have to figure out the correct way to cross it without inflicting damage to certain vehicles that have limited clearance and traction. This is what makes it exciting.

    If you do plan on going there and want me to join you, I will gladly guide you through the different sections taking into consideration the types of vehicles present.

    Thanks for the reply Johan, I will consult, and give you feedback.
