Madach and I had a rule: No beer before seeing lions!

Poor Bert will not like that rule... :lol:


We have the same rule but a bit more relaxed. The first descent sighting is beer open time, on some days Impies can become descent :D

Men of few words these musketeers!

Apparently the low water bridge at Croc Bridge is flooded due to the heavy rains. So they are not sure if they will get to do the 4x4 trail tomorrow.

They were hoping to do the one near Pretoriuskop tomorrow I think Freda. Not sure why the Croc Bridge water level was mentioned - I have yet to understand how a musketeer's mind works :roll:
