The MAN being spoiled first time around in Business Class, arriving in the lounge and sitting down for a lekker brekkie. Also plenty of leg room on the plane.

Eish - darem lekker ne!

My first time in Business Class was a bonus - believe it or not - I had a hand in getting a repair done to the electrical systym in the bulkhead. Prevented a massive delay and to say "thanks"  the capt had me upgraded from Cattle class to Business.... for the long-haul to Cape Town.. nice................. too bloody excited so wasn't even able to ,make use of the flatbed to sleep.......   :imaposer:

Ons gooi 'n brekkie by die wimpy in Knysna Sondagoggend, seker so hier by half tien. Hulle ry eers deur die Sewe passe van george af en dan kry ek hulle op Rheenendal.

Chat Saterdag met jou. Maak plan en join ons.

Glad you did read the thread boet.

I always enjoy reading other peoples threads and if I like them enough I cross post the thread or link to other forums where I go for others to enjoy.

It is great being here.

Here is a link and some photos of yesterday.

http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=120336.0


Unfortunately I cannot do a propper update and photo uploads untill Next week in Port Elizabeth.

In the mean time, we need to try to get the whale to rev much lower.

It currently idles at 3500 rpm once warmed up and will not drop down to normal under 1000rpm.

We suspect it is sucking a load of air in somewhere.

Anyway. Its 05.30 here and the house is quiet so I will turn over and try to doze a bit more.
