So i've had some requests to post some of my trip pictures on here since everyone is not on facebook. I don't want to make a 100 threads or post on a 100 threads so i will just post ever here.
I think i will also post some photos from the past. Could be fun.

My facebook photo page is over here for those that want to have a look at it.

My Wilddog story started with the famous KLR in 2007. I bought a shitty old KLR with savings but to me it was the best bike ever.  :laughing4:

The first photo here was used as a Wilddog banner for a long time. It was the first time i realised i could take photos that could be used on the internet.
A real turning point in my life. I bought a big SLR camera just after that and started learning how to use it.

This was the bash where a bunch of us stayed in the Karoo Hotel (Gay Hotel)   :imaposer:
We had enough of camping. Freezing on the previous bash.
That weekend there was a moerse wolkbreek in Steylerville and many peeps eventually moved into the hotel.

Epic weekend.

According to the relevant Criminal Code, Swastikas and other banned symbols can be displayed in Germany if they are used for "civic education/enlightenment, countering anti-constitutional activities, to promote art and science, research and education, the coverage of historic and current events, or similar purposes."

Thailand is a dangerous place. The highs will fuck your mind forever and sustaining those highs are nearly impossible.
Thailand to me was loads of Alcohol, sex and great views.
At the same time it sucks balls to work in Thailand. It is extremely humid.

Sorry for the Bad photos. From 2012 to 2014 i tried documenting life with a cellphone. It is shit and real cameras are still king. Even today.

You were at Cedar Point Sandusky? I was there in July 1997... Loved it.

Chris dis n moer lelike kar. Maar as ek my eerste kar daar gaan koop gaan dit seker so een wees net in Wit. Hulle is ongelooflik eenvoudig en reliable. Ek wil hom n overlander maak. Yskas, racking system, dak tent, suspension lift, wielle etc. Dis die laaste SUV in Amerika met n solid chassis. Body on frame. Ek like dit. Mens mag anyway nie vinnig ry daai kant nie.

Dis darem blerrie weird want die Cummins en Durmamax diesels is baie populêr. Ekt eendag n lusern/hay brocker ontmoet in New Mexico. Daai ou ry heeldag elke dag om aankope te doen. Hyt gekla oor sy word Ford V8 diesel se groot keel. Hy kon nie glo die soort van brandstof verbruik wat ons op daai stadium op Isuzu 2.5 en Toyota 2.4's kry nie.(dit was in 1991 nog voor ons self die eerste turbo diesels gehad het) Soos jy sê mens kan nie vinnig ry daar nie.

Jeep en Dodge het nou n 3liter V6 turbo diesel motor maar dis die enigste diesel motor wat ek van weet vir bakkies.
Hulle gebruik net diesels in voertuie wat moet tow. Jy weet hulle het daai groot trailers.

Ek dink daar is n baie groot mark vir  kleiner(soos ons sn) bakkies in 4 silinder turbo diesels. 2.8 0f 3.0 lt net vir die gewone ou wat baie ry of klein goed laai of sleep.Die avarage US ou maak tog fuel calculations.
Ekt n US kleint wat nou SA toe trek. Hy is verstom oor die 2.8 Fortuner en Ford Everest overings in diesel hier. Hy het n V6 4Runner daaikant.

Chicken and pork is really cheap and the quality is fantastic. Its what Thais eat all the time.
Lamb and Beef is expensive and the quality is not always what we are used to in SA. Most of the Beef and Lamb comes from Aus and NZ. I assume the supermarkets in Thailand do not buy A grade because its so expensive.

On the Titan i programmed all the Industrial controllers for the Chassis line. It took us about 6 months to build it and then another year to make it run smooth. I also write the software that commands the robots, As for robot motion paths we have guys that do that for a living. I used to be able to do that but i am completely rusty.
I also do HMI programming. Basically touch screen programming. Making the stuff you press on the screen.

In short i write all the software on a production line that makes things move. I have helpers when it comes to Robots. But most of the other stuff i do myself. Including touch screen, printers, scanners, sensor setup.

Shit i do not do. Wiring, mechanical repairs, etc. I will assist in faultfinding but fixing wires is not my thing. Thats why i studied.  :imaposer: :imaposer: No disrespect to Sparkies. I love you guys.

Shit i do not do. Wiring, mechanical repairs, etc. I will assist in faultfinding but fixing wires is not my thing. Thats why i studied.  :imaposer: :imaposer: No disrespect to Sparkies. I love you guys.

so its 18 months from (12 minimum) from concept to production? Interesting.

How is the concepts build? Is there special more versatile production lines especially for them?

Its usually 18 months from when i get involved. The planning, costing and design is at least 12 months before i get involved.

The concepts are built by hand. Most of the time they can't even roll on their own power.

I watched a really interesting documentary around the design and manufacture of the A-10 Warthog. They where given a gun and told to design a plane around it. the gun alone is something to the effect of 6m in length and fully loaded and it weighs around 1.8 tons. At max fire rate it will empty its amo load in 18 seconds firing at a a rate of 3900 rpm.  :o

Portait i took in Montagu.

Excellent portraiture

Those Dodge Ram's with the Hemi V8...I drove some for a couple hundred miles while working in Nebraska and it is not as smooth shifting as the Chevy Silverado and cant always make up its mind which gear to select but the muscle factor and overall design appeal to me



Personally i choose the Chevy trucks for the refinement. The Rams are cool but i am past that stage.

Those Ram Hemi V8's use a German ZF 8HP transmission.  A lot of manufacturers use the same tranny with their own programming.  I owned a vehicle with the trans and it too would get confused and hunt for gears.

When i drive a Challenger with the ZF 8 speed i put it in sport mode. Sport turns off gear 7 and 8. No more hunting. But thats not an option on the trucks.

Man, that dude has some major money in that 4Runner.

I've priced many of the items he has and I begin squirming thinking about putting that kind of money into a depreciating object.

Toytec Boss Aluma Series lift, Total Chaos UCA's and LCA's, 5 wheels, 5 tires = minimum $6,000 + install

Gobi rack = $1,500

Magnusson Blower = $5,400 + install

CBI front bumper powder coated = $1,800

CBI dual swing rear bumper powder coated with all options = $3,500

CBI Rock sliders = $1,000

Maggiolina roof top tent painted black = $4,000

ARB Fridge, awning, and drawer system = $2,500

TRD Off Road 4Runner = $40,000

Then, he said he wants to add an ARB Twin compressor, front locker, and upgrade ring n pinions = $2,000 + install

Yeah he went way overboard. But he probably got a sponsor.
I don't need a winch so i will go for a much cheaper bumper.
The rear bumper i don't need.
The supercharger i don't need. The 4.0 make enough beans for me.
The rooftop tent i will go for something cheaper.
I will get the TRD Pro it already had a suspension upgrade. Wheels i will keep standard at TRD PRO size.
I will get the racking system and fridge.
Oh yes and rock sliders.

So not exactly the same but he got the ultimate car there.

For those interested in how i take photos.

As you can see i am really too lazy to take photos in perfect light. I know how to do it but to me that's not real life it art rather.

I take photos with the thought in mind "How would i like to remember this day?". Then all i do is record memories in photo form. Having someone or something in the frame makes it a better, more interesting, more memorable photo. Other than that i apply rule of thirds. I make sure my subject always moves into the frame. I crop to a standard 16:9  aspect when in landscape and 5:4 when in portrait mode. Then i do color correction and shadow recovery. I usually turn down the highlights. Thats it. Simple stuff. Anybody can do it.

For some reason he does not get logged on, we've told him ten times already how he must do it. I have his number if you want it. During the week he is on the farm near Humansdorp. He commutes to CG over weekends to be with his family. What a commute!! ;) :thumleft:

Ja i met him on Sunday. The guy loves his AT so do i.

Does Carl have a Wilddog name?
For some reason he does not get logged on, we've told him ten times already how he must do it. I have his number if you want it. During the week he is on the farm near Humansdorp. He commutes to CG over weekends to be with his family. What a commute!! ;) :thumleft:

Langkloof Route62 by Krakeel verby is freakin' awesome !

Over our past trip we worked out I have done that route at least 80 times over the past 40 years  :lol8: And I never tire of it.

Done it about 4 times now and I can also say that I don't think I will ever tire of it

Still a little ways to go to be certain

Daai 'losmaak depression ' is so werklik, en iets wat ander mense nie kan verstaan en ek verwag ook nie hul moet. Sodra ek in die ander land kom begin ek myself weer lig en raak dinge gou weer beter.

It is. But lots of high up English speaking South Africans still have the idea that its the holiday spot for the common right wing Afrikaner. I just laugh at those people for being ignorant. In the area's defense the whole South Coast is pretty awesome.

B O, I work in Power an Petrochem, there is a big Gas to Liquid Fuel Refinery on the edge of town in Mossel Bay, so like every other project here in the last 40 years I was involved, and spent time there, with CB&I, Davy, Fluor, Bechtel, Babcock, Lummus etc so I know the game.

Mossel Bay is weird, it is on the East Coast, but due to the headland, the old town faces North, it has one of the most temperate climates in the world very similar to Hawaai! It was the favourite retirement destination for government railway employees. :biggrin:

Those over head cables  :-\

You haven't seen Bangladesh then. The whole country is at sea level, we were drilling in the "highlands" which was 32m above sea level so it makes sense to have overhead cables.

Just not sure who would be able to make sense of them.

On Sunday mornings i go on my weekly grocery shopping spree. I hate it lol But if i want to cook i must buy.  :laughing4: :laughing4:

Just for interest this is what you can buy for 85 Dollars. You can get it much cheaper at the bulk shops but its not practical for a bachelor with a small kitchen.

I am in Michigan and on a low carb diet.

Pic 1: Ground coffee, spices and some coke.

Pic 2: ham steaks (lekker for brekkie instead of bacon), mushrooms, some fancy nuts, pork chops.

Pic 3:  frozen veggies and pork chops.

Another thing to get me interested in cooking i had to get a nice knife or two, nice chopping board, nice nonstick pan plus having a dish washing machine is gold. Then last thing get a TV with youtube in the kitchen. That way you can keep busy while cooking.

 :imaposer:  My lady is Thai, she can eat rice for breakfast, lunch & dinner and even for desert sometimes, she is tiny and stays that way.  Oh and I cannot buy just any rice, I must go to Akila Foods and get their special Thai Fragrant Rice which is double the price of the Jasmine

Cheap fuel is the reason why they have such a great economy. You can see it all over the world. The cheaper the fuel the easier it is to do business. Obviously you also need a fairly free market but ja.

When I lived and worked in the US back in 1997 I was surprised on the whole how much American cars depreciated compared to Jap cars.

The only exception back then was the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

They build cars to last 8 years max. Everyone looks at me really funny when i say i want a 10 year old car. Apparently workshop time is really expensive here so if you can't fix it yourself you should not drive an older car.
I was looking at a Landcruiser 200 for myself. But everyone has been saying no its too old. Looking at 2011 ish models.

Another thing paying off cars are good for your credit rating so thats why many people trade cars every 4 years or so.

My opinion is Landcruiser 200 built overseas will last forever if you keep the rust off it. Save me a fortune. I can even service it myself.

Although, if you have SA clothing here at -25 C you start getting quite cold.

As long as the wind don't blow I can stand quite some low temps, but even me at a certain point gets frozen.

My army days in Voortrekkerhoogte have some of my coldest times. Man that shit hole got very cold.

Yes people think of their coldest day in SA then reference it back to much colder numbers here in the States. Its not the same.
Our cars have heated seats and steering wheels. The houses and offices are heated. It does not feel nearly as cold as Oudtshoorn for example in the winter.
I've gone through 6 winters here with jeans and a North Face fleece jacket. Sometimes i had to put two jackets on but thats it.

The worst part is just to get your car warm in the mornings. Remote start sorts that problem out.

Exactly what Cappies says.......everything is centrally heated. Go to any hotel and you will only get one duvet per bed.

Furthermore, I spoke a guy from Poland, he said that he never experienced a winter as cold as our and it comes down to the fact that we do not have central heating.

Well much to disagree here from a man working Agriculture in other words Always Outside  :deal:
We do not have an inside at work, and working on top of a moving train which lids has frozen solid in a northerly wind in Kansas is not near anything I have ever experienced in SA or elsewhere.
Kansas is the state in North Amerika known for the most windy hence the numerous windfarms around here that keep popping up like mushrooms.
I have never felt more cold in my life, not even in the open south seas on the monkey deck of the SA Agulhas  :biggrin:
But yes the house we rent is warm like summer inside.

I do have the biggest respect for the guys working outside. My comment was aimed more at office workers and house wives. I got a couple of friends where the wives don't want to look at Canada or the USA to move to because apparently it is too cold.

Talking about cold winters.  On a trip to Canada in a January, ie midwinter, many years ago, my Vaalie nature kicked in and I took a walk around Algonquin Island (they have some nice boardwalk routes there). I think I did more splits that day than a Teazers stripper during a Friday lunchtime show.

Janee. Covid. Verskoning vir enige iets.

 Ek sien gister n spietkop aangejaag kom na n verkeerskruising waar ek toe al laaaank staan weens dooie verkeersligte omdat Eskom ons weer loadshed.

Het nie masker aan nie.
Klim uit sy kar, trek sy masker aan en gaan staan in die intersection en begin verkeer reguleer.
Maar hy vergeet om sy dayglo baadjie of wit handskoene aan te trek.
Seker meer gevaar dat hy daar in die ope lug kan Covid opdoen as wat iemand hom doodry.

Een rede hoekom ek sommer van die begin af 'n tubeless conversion gedoen het, ek het maar net te veel met tubes's gesukkel langs die pad en self nou nog al is my fiets tubless ry ek nog 'n voor tube saam vir ingeval die band van so aard sny dat 'n gator nie alleen sal hou nie. (Voor tube kan agter ook gebruik word in 'n nood geval)

In die 15 jaar wat ek ry het ek 2 puntures gehad. Altwee kon ek voorkom. Ek geniet my ry sonder tubes en al daai jazz.

Lekker Cappie
Is that the Dct or do you prefer the manual?
Such a sexy looking bike, I love them twins!
