If it's a real case of jippo-guts, positioning the spade 'just so' will be the last thing on your mind :lol:

Errol, dit lyk nie of ons in tyd die Bandit gaan he nie. Daar is nog baie issues om uit te sorteer met die import van die produk.
Daar is n ander device wat ons verseker gaan saam bring, sy naam is die TomTom Bridge. Sal julle bietjie n link stuur

Hey Alex.
With all the talk about spade positioning and "spuitpop", those toilet rolls may be a hot commodity, therefore I suggest you charge the second roll at R10, 3rd roll at R15 and so on. :rolling: :mytwocents:
Make the buggers pay.
With that all said and done, I hope I am not the one paying! :think:
Chow for now.

Can we PLEASE!!! get off this shitty topic :oldtimer: you are ruining my thread :doh:

Lets rather talk about who's planning on taking a shower or a bath in the river, seems just a bit more of a "cleaner" subject QQQ

My leave has been officially approved so I can finally confirm that I will be joining you guys on this trip :woo:

As it is my first time going solo for such a long period I have some questions:
1. Do I need to take one of those blue plugs for the caravan with to connect my power?
2. Will there be hot water in the ablutions or at least a donkey?
3. Do we need to take our own toilet paper or will it be supplied?
4. Can I buy my wood there or do I need to take it with?
5. will they supply me with a braai or do I need to take one with?

So many questions, will update a bit more later...................

Dirk?

Who has been logging onto your computer asking these questions?

We are not going to Sun City. This is cowboy country.
Nothing will be "supplied" to you, except for my toilet rolls, and except as Henry Ford used to say, "God's great open spaces".
Okay that also includes the sun, which means you can also bring a sun panel along if you need to electricity. Not the blue plug.

hmmmm.... that's a crappy thing to say.....hahaha

1. Do I need to take one of those blue plugs for the caravan with to connect my power? Huh??......nope .....no power
2. Will there be hot water in the ablutions or at least a donkey? Huh??........ nope..... and leave my donkey alone.... It's my 4.2 diesel donkey.....hahahahaha
3. Do we need to take our own toilet paper or will it be supplied? Nope ..... Alex is our crapologist on this expedition.... Bio degradable rolls are available from him
4. Can I buy my wood there or do I need to take it with? I'm going to chuck a bag or 2 on the roofrack.... one can NEVER have enough wood
5. will they supply me with a braai or do I need to take one with? Us Nissan guys are very friendly.... we will share our grids if you don't have your own..... but braai we will !!!
