Spotted other Alex (Botha) today on Lois, turning into Garsfontein. I had been presenting training at work all day, so was somewhat lost in thought and only noticed you as the lights changed. Thanks for the wave. Awesome seeing people in Patrols... :rolling:

Just saw a really nice neat looking gold GQ on Michelle Ave in Meyersdal by the R59. He wasn't a forum member, cause he didn't wave back..... :confused: :confused: :confused:

Thanks Leon, yes I do drive around quite a bit in Rooihuiskraal and The Reeds area.
You must flash me with your headlamps if you see me again....there are far more Pathies on the road than Patrols, but if I know how your look it will make it easier to spot you in the future :thumbup:

Hi Michael, green Pathy with home made alu roof rack, you cannot miss the ORRU call sign L65 on the front bumper or on the rear and 2m VHF antenna on the engine bay lip. :thumbup:

Ons stop Vrydag middag by die eerste N3 tolhek Suid van Heidelberg en sien 'n bruin Patrol agter ons tou staan. Toe was dit Riaan (aka Bruin beer).

Got a wave from a bottle green GU wagon on the R511 today. Good looking Patrol, but spare wheel was not on the backdoor. It is confirmed that it was not Michael or "Other Alex". Perhaps Nissan Kincab (aka: Danie) ?
