Had to visit the inlaws this year, they were at Henties.
Went with the platkar, so it was a bit un-adventorous.

Luckily Don Nieuwoudt came to my rescue and invited me to the dunes. I drove with him in his super awesome 40 series Cruiser fitted with a hot LS3 motor (6.3 liter V8). I was a real treat driving with such an experienced dune driver in such a capable vehicle. His son drove another 40 series fitted with 1UZ. So it was music in my ears the whole day long.

The dunes were so beautiful that I just had to share it with the rest of the family. So the next day I rented some quads and took the family to the dunes.

This is what happens if you go to Nam in a platkar, the car ends up on the beach:

Ag nee Pieter daar is mos nie n manier wat n mens Henties toe gaan met n plat kar nie.Dit lyk darem of julle dit geniet het met die 4 wiel bikes.

Ek weet, maar ons tyd was beperk en dit het net nie vir my sin gemaak om R10k se petrol uit te ry net om 3 dae by die familie te kuier nie.

As ek R10k aan petrol moet spandeer doen ek dit eerder terwyl ek grondpadlangs toer en nie ander mense hoef te sien nie. Geval van 17 km/l vs 6.5 km/l.

Pieter ek stem saam,vir 3 dae is dit nie die moeitewerd om met 4x4 Henties toe te gaan nie. Ek gaan gewoonlik vir 14 dae soontoe met die hoof doel om op die strand te ry en vis te vang.

Mooi pics Pieter, ja ek ken vir Don goed. my baas Hansie en Don is groot pelle, hy gaan elke jaar saam Don op n trip. Hy was 2 jaar terug saam Don in die duine toe Giniel De Villers en die Toyota span daar getoets het. Daai motor van Don was een van die motors wat hulle getoets het.

Netjiese foto van die een waar die wiel so spin.
