So busy at the mo, I think it will take me longer to read this report than what it took you to do the whole trip  ;) but I am getting there slowly but surely . :P After 3 weeks of dipping into the RR I have only made it to page 5 but its WONDERFUL so far   :thumleft: You guys ROCK  :3some:

“It’s impossible,” said pride. “It’s risky,” said experience. 

“It’s pointless,” said reason. “Give it a try,” whispered the heart.

Brilliant man!!!

A friend and I talked about going to north / central eastern Angola to look at some timber (plantation not natural), just for the trip. Both busy, never got to it.  You did it!!

Those twee spoor paaitjies designed for 6x6 truck are interesting a a Cruiser has to hop one side then the other.  In the Dark Ages there were ou's who put Unimog rims onto LC's to widen the track so they could tear around shooting up the locals with .50's and such. Luckily they've been forgiven it seems.
