Chris ek het vir 7 jaar in Maitland slagpale gewerk en daardie Witvlei trokke met die lewendehawe het die parkeerplek voor die slagpale daagliks vol gestaan. Moet se daardie drywers was moerse nice en altyd 'n plesier om mee saam te werk. Onthou nog vir Daan Kotze van Marienthal. Daai boer het vir jare vleis vir my gegee sonder dat ek ooit gevra het. Baie nice manse die Namibieers.

Sal graag nog eendag vir Daan wil loop kuier,maar weet nie hoe om hom in die hande te kry nie. Baie smart foto's en sal dit nog eil doen. Hoop my vrou en seuns sal saam gaan.

Baie dankie vir 'n Lekker RR

Lekker Chris.

I was in Ondangwa, had to offload your veggy trucks every 2 weeks. Tuesdays or Wednesdays if I remember correctly.

Worst thing is that is always came late in the afternoon/night. Interfering with relaxing time. We hated it. And back then I did not even eat the stuff.

You brought eggs as well.

Flashbacks from '85-86.

On Wednesdays Kobus. But I always tried to be there at 10 in the morning. Drove through the night from CT to be at Oshivello gate at 7 when they opened up. No traffic through there between 7 and 7.
