Saw a great tip for dispensing loo roll on TV the other night. Take a empty 2lt coke bottle, cut it in half. Remove the inner cardboard from the roll and place the roll in the coke bottle threading the toilet paper from the inside of the roll though the screw cap opening. Push the bottle back together and WALAH a dust-proof dispenser that won't unravel.

One more tip, please use a red filter on anything you spot using a light, the aninal will relax and go about its business less distrubed. This really makes for a better sighting. :thumbs_up:

What is the best way to clean and store our potjie pot until December 2014? I have washed it very well, have coated it will oil and put scrunched up balls of newspaper in to absorb any moisture, is this enough? or should I have done it differently :roll: :roll: thank you

That is what we do (except we substitute the oil with cooking spray) to our potjies @Struisbaai and it keeps perfectly (no rust at all :D ) , TD.

I'm reading through the post and want to share my tip. As we start planning our trip we have 2 bottles one for r5 and one for r1 and r2. Every other day we empty our purses and start saving. This money goes towards laundry and toll gates aswell as most garages have a pay system to use the loo. Last year on our trip to the kruger we had r700 saved in change.
