A step in the riverbed caused by mining for sand gave us our next opportunity for fun.

Alex finally found us, giving us the opportunity to settle another grudge match. With a drag race of course.

And then Tinus, in an inspired moment (actually he was trying to kap a doughnut, but it doesn't work well in soft sand), discovered the crop circle.

But got progressively worse, with some steep rockslider-testing rocks.

But the kicker was the dune one had to climb immediately after exiting the dune. Of course, the more cars churned it up, the tougher it bacame...

This obstacle took the first battle damage, making mincemeat of David Volschank's running boards and ripping off one of the appliance's mudflaps.

By the end of the day the dune was so tough, the maiden ended up on the endof a winch cable.

Yes, but if I may interject, Cedric could have blown down much more, but gracefully allowed me to break my winch-virginity instead.
Thats our story anyway.

Jules, I don't know but somewhere around 20, with six other cars.

Of the three GQ's, Chris Boegman once again showed the rest of us how it should be done, i never saw Dirk in action but suspect he cake-walked everything and David struggled a bit with clearance, but his car's suspension had sagged a lot since new.

Ek het gesien ook daar is n nuwerige GU ( 4.8 dink ek ) wat ook geen aftermarket goed opgehad het nie , hoe het hy gevaar ?

Wat ek probeer vasstel is hoe capable is ons lorries soos hy van die vloer rol sonder lifts en after bumpers
