Dag Maats.

Soos verduidelik het gaan ek en Graham van GTech die roete saam julle behartig. My brits is nie so lekker nie. So vergewe maar die Afrikaans. Ek sal wanneer dt moet beslis engels gesels met julle.Die hele idee is om die Botswana roete n jaarlikse instelling te maak soos wat ons doen met al die ander roetes. Ek sal vir Graham vra om vir ons meer te se van die voertuie se tegniese benodighede. En dt sal hy in engels kan doen. Ons sal ook n bymekaar koms reel. Die van julle wat nie kan bywoon nie. Ons sal vir julle die nodige inligting aanstuur. Ons sal ook baja van die whtsup groep gebruik maak. Saam my en Graham sal ons nog 6 voertuie kan vat. Ek sal ook graag vir elkeen die beplande roete wil stuur. Indien julle die GPX File van Base Camp kan ontvang stuur asb vir my julle epos adresse. Indien nie. sal ek op die whtsup groep vir julle n video stuur. Onthou dat die n roete is waar almal insette kan lewer. ek en Graham is alleenlik die aanknoopers. Die datums is as volg 19-30 April. Ek is ook nie heeltemal op hoogte wie saamgaan en wie nie. Kan julle asb aandui of julle nog wil gaan. Ons kan sommer n nuwe lys begin hier.

Nou is ek al moeg getik.

Groete

Hi Guys.

Let start this list off ... :woo: We are going to keep this as the updated list, instead of redoing as the post gets longer.
1. Tommie Watkins
2. Graham Cumming - PathMaker
3. Tony Barone - Gladiator
4. Dawie PIETERSE - Ossewa
5. Corrie Pretorius - Vastrap
6. Henk Retief
7. Alex Roux - Skilpad
8. Brandon Jarvis

Standby List:
1.
2.

Maybe List :
1. Chris Skinner

Please remember that we will be allocating an additional 6 Patrols for this trip (8 Patrols in total with Tommie and I). Please put your name on the list if you have intentions to join us because due to unforseen circumstances, people pull out and then the next name on the list is allocated a spot.

Technically speaking, Patrols need to be in good mechanical condition, this been said we would prefer if the planned Patrol could come in for a check over with us at least a month prior to departure.
Experienced on previous trips are due to excessive muddy conditions, attention need to be put on clutch condition, brake systems and cooling systems.
As we get closer to the time, there will be lists made and a planned get together with major information input for the trip. (What to take and what not!)

Everyone will need to be self-sufficient for the duration of the trip with regards to food, water, light and fuel. (ICE :biggrin: )

Chow for now and safe travels.
Graham

Hi Everyone
As per Tommie's request, I have attached a picture of the intended route.
This particular route is a 13 day route, but can be cut down to a 10/11 day route but obviously either longer day driving or bypassing sections.
As I can't attached the actual .gpx file (due to file extention error :think: ), please send me an email with Botswana 2019 route map in title and I will forward it to you.
Thereafter, to open this attached route map, you will have to download Google Maps to your desktop/laptop and open from File>open>select location & file name. Remember to select all 3 options with regards to data export screen.
On the left side of the google maps screen, once route is open, you can select the route and open the relevant folders to see the daily route plans.
Hope everyone come right. :thumbup:
Thanks
Vanessa
