I've been thinking along the lines of having a braai evening ... can be done here at my place, but after the mess from the storm (and my older sis visiting from JHB this weekend) I've been putting it off. (Also a little chilly at the moment). Perhaps we can do something like that later when it warms up a little. I'd still like to do Ferndale again, but then it must be with an overnight stay ... not a day trip.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Agreed on the Ferndale thing. It will be a nice trip out for my CarrotVan. Not too far and roads not to bad.It'll be a good test. Looking forward to it :thumbup:

Ek was so jaar gelede by 'n roete in Oos-Londen(meer 'n obstacle course) baie mooi plek maar die eienaar was 'n Mahindra fan , kan ongelukkig nie onthou wat sy naam of die plek se naam was nie. Ek het egter nie baie tuis gevoel daar met my lux nie, is dit dalk ferndale ?

No, Ferndale is closer to Cathcart than EL. Sounds like you were at De Kraal on the N2

thats right De Kraal , the guy told me he'd rather buy 2 mahindras for the price of 1 hilux . I told him I'd rather buy myself a bicycle because its much lighter to push.

hehehe. Well I suppose you get what you pay for and if you pay twice you twice the trouble... That being said, we had a charity drive there sometime back and there was a Mahindra in std form with no lockers and it did very well. Reliabilty long term???

There were two of them .... the guy in the white one got the booby prize for some or other reason IIRC.

Theo. You tell the guy you'd rather buy a bicycle then a Mahindra. Geen wonder ju't nie tuis gevoel nie. I do however agree with you.
