So I am busy with work in Jefreysbay and was killing time at the beach when I see a fairly big boat beach.
Expected a big tractor to come and load it , but no. A 4.2 Patrol pickup with marie biscuit wheels pumped to 3 bar arrives.
And there was no trouble. Heard one of the locals say "Dis darem n demm sterk bakkie daai!"

The background on the photo is not mist , but smoke from a massive fire southwest of Jbay. Locals had to evacuate houses there yesterday.

Spotted this patrol in Big Bay (CPT) this morning while out for a surf before work. Perhaps a forum member? Ive only ever seen 2 x patrols in Blouberg. This one and a gold one. Will be great to know if there is some forum members in my area.

PS. Bogeyman - the fires is really bad this last 2 years here in the western cape as well. its really sad and i feel for the farmers and animals. Hope they can catch these buggers (i believe its arsonists)

I was on the parking lot that was the N1 South today around Atterbury. I believe I spotted Jorrie. I think his is probably the only green Patrol with a submarine wheel cover. Looking good. :biggrin:
