JenB, I must say, I pitched and packed up my ground dome tent (alone) in the same time as RTT were setup, and it provide a little more "adventure" when you have to go outside at night... :whistle:

Ok..May I propose 15,16,17 and 18 October. It will not be that hot.
I will not be able to do the accommodation bookings for the night before and the night after but will do the actual trail bookings.

The trail will start at Twee Rivieren and then move towards Nossob.

The two birds will definitely not mind Scips!! :dance: :dance:
DB, we have ourselves a barman! :twisted:

Jannie, :thumbs_up: Thanx! :D

Switchback, who said anything about going outside alone at night? If I have to step out I'll make sure I have a huge audience! :lol:

Most definitely a more challenging ride than we had. There are a few dunes S-N that looks very interesting. The one just north of Swartbas camp springs to mind - quite steep and unlike Bertha, no escape route :tongue: . Definitely a must do for the REAL 4x4's :twisted: .

Agree with WKK, S - N will be a greater challenge. And hopefully some good hearted people would have repaired some of the dunes by then... :whistle:
