My vriend Pierre Lombard GQ 4.2D single cab gaan nie meer die McCarthy trip doen nie en lyk my hy wil graag by jul inskakel, wanneer presies vertrek julle uit Gauties? Hy kom via Richardsbaai maar sal jul sekerlik aan die Vrystaat kant ontmoet tensy hy sommer by Sani opry en jul dan iewers is Lesotho kry vir die trip, laat weet asb

Shalom

GQ 4.2D single cab.. is that a shortie, or a bakkie?
Does it have a rear locker? It may come in handy. But there will be ample winches around if it is a real problem.

I was thinking initially to depart on the 3rd, but actually leaving Gauteng in the early morning of Thursday 5 October will be sufficient.
This gives us two clear days for the Baboons. Also some of the guys coming may have issues with sufficient leave of we leave earlier than the 5'th.

If he is a forum member, then let him give his details here.
Then he can also join the Whatsapp group set up specifically for this trip

I have given Cyril from Wegry this week to respond.
If not, then we can make other plans.

I was thinking we could challenge Nissan to bring the Navarra with driver and a journalist.
Tinus has the contacts. But based on past experience, bringing the camel to the water does not always guarantee it will drink.

Baboons was done by a local guy from Alberton a few weeks ago in his new Navara.

I have updated the first post with the list of 10 vehicles.
I think we will need to cap it at 10.
