Marinus, firstly relax and enjoy the trip, it will be great! The itinerary looks pretty good to me, except for the day you leave Maun for third bridge. I can strongly recommend taking a flight over the delta from Maun, and personally would rather do that than the boat trip, particularly since you wi...

Re: Maus en 4.8

Jacques, al wat 'n chip doen is om mens toe te laat om die bestaande en vasgestelde verstellings te verander. Van hierdie verstellings kan 'n enjin ernstig beskadig mits hulle buite sekere perke val. Fit is dus die kennis en vernuf van die man wat die verstellings doen, wat bepaal beide hoeveel bete...

Years ago, I used these guys: http://www.sayellow.com/@2?wr=10&Cli_Re ... er=348,919
