Noneking,

Great RR and brought to life with a great array of photos. You mentioned that your camera batteries went flat, but try as I might, I couldn't see a mention anywhere of what type of camera you use. Please tell me, it sure takes great photos.

Cheers

I just read the DPreview review of it and they complained about the short battery life. Suggested that perhaps a user should carry a spare, allowing you to charge both at night - one in the charger and the other in camera via USB.

Perhaps worth considering?

Edit: Spelling.

I had no issue with battery life, only limited charging opportunity. The battery only ran out once, because we did not have access to electricity for several days.

Ek het destyds toe die RR begin is, daaraan gelees, maar het weer daarvan "vergeet" agv werk ens..

Gister toe praat ek met @Vis Arend  se baas, @Mev Vis Arend en sy se toe dat hulle op die trip gaan begin Mei.

Dadelik begin ek toe lees daar waar ek laas opgehou het tot laat gistermiddag.  Vandag weer begin verder lees tot by die einde.

Baie RR's kyk ek net die kiekies, want dit vertel mos 'n storie?  Die RR het ek elke woord en sin gelees en ek moet eerlik waar se - dis 'n trip en RR duisend.

Baie dankie vir die deel @Noneking & die res.  Julle is almal ysters en ek beny julle. 

Sal dit graag wil doen - moet net my agterent in rat kry, en 'n voorraad hartpille saamvat  :deal:

@Hardy de Kock  - ek dink ek moet by julle kom leer hoe om te organiseer. 

@Noneking - Sal by jou moet leer hoe om 'n ordentelike RR te skryf.

Julle almal is gesaluut 

 :salut: :salut:
