Welcome Simon. If you spot a blue and silver 4.5 cruising around, that would be my father. He stays in Potch too. :salute: :salute:

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have seen a few Patrols in Potch. Would be good to meet some of the local chaps. @Leon: Would be good to meet. I am sure I have seen you vehicle. I am near the Dam area in Potch. Some asked for some pics so here goes. Photos of Patrol, me and my boys [That is one half of the family], and my woodworking shop. I know very little about vehicles and anything that involves electricity, but want to learn. Some have called me the last remaining Luddite on earth. I love woodworking and still know how to use the hand tools. Hand-cut dovetails...nothing sweeter. So if you break down in your Trol call Peter or Ricster, but if you want a coffee table then I'm your man.

That's a beautiful collection of planes you have there!

I also like doing a little bit of woodwork specialized, but hand-cut dovetails are beyond me.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.
