What on earth is this?!
« on: April 08, 2013, 12:03:18 am »
I am preparing for a trip to Verneukpan at the end of April.
On zooming in on the bottom part of the road that runs through Verneukpan on Google Maps I found this. What on earth can it be?

BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

Ek dink dit is bloot areas wat met 'n trekker losgemaak is in 'n poging om plantegroei te vestig. Kaal stukke grond het geen ekonomiese waarde vir die boer nie, maar as daar plantbedekking is, kan dit bewei word.
Kom ons maak 'n stoffie.

Lots more of that on Verneukpan, apparently they were used for an advertisement.
They are deep grooves, MX type deep.
Blessed are the Cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

Good spotting - thanks for the feedback :thumleft:
One can indeed see the irrigation circles following the flow of the water flowing into Verneukpan at the end of the delta. I am sure he had lots of fun ploughing!

Ek wonder hoe ploeg hulle daardie sirkels so perfek rond - maak hulle die stuurwiel vas in `n sekere posisie?
