Was a seriously good weekend!

ScalkL do you have more photos of Kukome Island ? A group of us are going there in May 2019, but I can't find any decent photos of the island to show the others. If you have, please post a few more, if possible. We're going in 4x4's unfortunately.
Thanks a stack

Here is a link to my google album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Kox4C8VT2TqF7UA67
A sort of order to the photo's are:
1. Last town before border post
2. Pontdrift borderpost
3. Dry riverbed and Solomons wall right in it
4. All the pan photos are from Kukome island
5. Sleepover on our way back

NB!!!
DONT let anybody go alone to ride the pan. 2 of us got lost for 2 hours with a gps.
Safe side is not to not ever go further than 30m from the edge of the pan.
If you ride on the pan stay at least 100m behind the vehicle in front of you if he gets stuck ALWAYS keep one vehicle NOT on the pan. You can not walk to look for help!
The "darker" appearance on the pan is dangerous
The "fluffy" dry crumble areas are safer
Keep momentum Keep momentum Keep momentum
Work out how much water you need and take 3x that
You now pay to camp there with basically no facilities
Sometimes you don't need a plan, just balls :)
