After a stunning week at Tzendze I have come up with an idea.

If you have been following my trip report you would have noticed that I make mention of Rodger the camp master a number of times. Now Rodger is a keen follower of the forum and of Marties blog.

This morning I received an SMS from "prings" in Australia, it was a message from Rodger and he asked prings to forward it to me as he did not have my cell number. He just wanted to say thanks for what I said about him in my TR.

The reason I mention this is that, Rodger accesses the forum on his cell phone. While I was there he spoke about trying to get a computer. Now what I want to find out, can we forum members try and make a plan to let Rodger make use of the forum and post on it by somehow getting him a laptop. A pc would not work too well as the power supply could damage the pc. A laptop would work well as he can charge the batteries from a invertor that he already uses.

My suggestion is that maybe we can donate a few Rands to by him one or if there is anyone out there with a used one that they are willing to part with, you will make this mans dream come true.

Please, let me know your thoughts on this idea.

:thumbs_up: I am with you Spocky :D

You must find a way to make the idea known to a lot of mites. There must be someone out there with a used lap top.

Great idea, Sprocky. Although we have never met Rodger, my parents have camped in Tzendze these past two December's and have spoken very highly of him.

Unfortunately we do not have an old laptop, but wouldn't mind throwing in a few bucks for this cause. Just think what a nice christmas present this will be for Rodger :D

I've got one for him, but I'm a bit far away and don't exactly know when I will be in SA. :hmz:
