My First Patrol!!

Post by Buddy » 29 Sep 2018 08:21

I took delivery of my 1st patrol this week. It has been a dream for many many years that came true!!
I flew up to Kimberley on Tuesday and drove back to the West Coast on Wednesday morning. I left Kimberley at about 10h00 and started the 1036 km trek back home.
Wednesday evening at 21h10 I arrived back home in Vredenburg. The Patrol did not miss a beat.

As mentioned in another post, this particular Patrol and previous owner is kinda well known on this group and other forums. I am surely one very lucky owner!!
Thank you to Tommie for building and properly maintaining such an awesome vehicle!! Thank you Erich for the opportunity to be the new owner.
