Arrived at Nossob on the 6th of November for the night enroute to Grootkolk for three nights only to be told there was no diesel as the fuel bowser was stuck at Kameelsleep. :shock:
Word was that help was to be sent from Twee Rivieren to free the truck and it was expected at Nossob around 10am on the morning of the 7th.
By 1pm there was no sign of the truck and no definative word on its progress. :(

We had sufficient fuel to get to Grootkolk but definately none for game viewing and precious little to get back to Nossob.
Had visions of spending our entire time at Grootkolk in the camp until Jaco the Nossob camp manager came to our rescue.
He told us to proceed to Grootkolk and that he would deliver diesel to us the next day.

True to his word 45 litres arrived the next morning which Franco the Grootkolk camp attendant kindly assisted me in transferring to the truck.

Jaco,many thanks for going the extra mile through no fault of your own to make our stay at Grootkolk as memorable as ever. :clap: :clap:
Franco,many thanks for organising the logistics,made more difficult by the fact that Grootkolk has no direct radio contact with Nossob and everything had to be relayed via Gharagab. :clap: :clap:

You guys rock. :thumbs_up:
