Hi L&I,
Nice RR,  would like to visit it again. I was there in the late '90s when it was operational. In summer the "kwik" hit 45 degrees. The barman would serve us zamaleks in frosty glasses 10am.....
The Post Office and our site was called Chrisbestos. In the rainy season it can only be reached with a Avis 4x4 or a bakkie.

Let me know when you're planning to go back. Would like to tag along.

Hi Ragbert. Looks as if you no the possie, would love to hear more about the place. Will only be able to go again next year, but will let you no.

Hey dad.

Good RR.

I hope you planning on taking us with this time...sounds great.
Will have to spend a weekend and check everything out.

We can pitch our tents and see if lights magically appear at night.
