Richtersveld April-May 2015

Post by Marino4x4 » 13 May 2015 15:30

Hi

Here is my trip report for the trip planned in this post:

http://patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=5226#p58167

Sorry, it is a bit lengthy, but as mentioned it is hard to find information on the Richtersveld. I did it as a PDF's, doing such a long post is not cricket. :wink: I also had to do it in 9 pdf's. The biggest file I could load was 1Mb.

Cheers

P.S. Sorry for the overlapping pages.

Lyk na `n lekker trip en jy is nie bang vir tent op en afslaan nie! Was al tot by die ingang by die Richtersveld toe my kar keuse voor die patrol probleme gegee het.

Ek het gevind met ons tweeling 650km is redelik doenbaar op `n dag tot 800 kan mens dit bietjie druk maar meer begin die vrou en kinders moeilik raak.

Dis darem lekker om so met jou familie te toer. Lyk baie lekker daar, ek en my vrou moet ook nog in daardie rigting toer.

Ek verstaan presies wat jy bedoel elke keer as jy iets sê oor Nina en hoe sy ry reelings bepaal. Ons het ook nou oor die 2 lang naweke met ons 11 maande ou seun deur Swaziland getoer en 2 weke voor dit deur Lesotho.

As mens kinders het kom jou lewe nie tot n stilstand nie.

Geniet die af tye saam met jou gesin.

Hier n foto van ons outjie agter in Patrol.
