Baviaans - combined E/C & W/C GTG.

Postby Mud Dog » Mon Jan 02, 2017 9:55 pm

We have spoken of this before and suggested some time early in 2017. Well 2017 is here and we are looking at organising this as a joint GTG between the W/ Cape and E/Cape guys.

We are looking at doing this sometime over a long weekend somewhere in March / April. So let's first get some dates fixed and then we can start a list of who will be joining. Ideally we should make it a 3 day / two night sleep over trip.

Since we don't have any long weekends over those months except for the Easter w/end (14 15 16 17 April), we will have to decide whether to do it then (it will be busy) or if we opt for the w/end of 18 19 March - the Monday 20th is a school holiday and Tuesday the 21st is human rights day.

Suggestions?

Indeed! SWAMBO is unemployed at present but I'm still hoping to recover financially before then :thumbup:

March could be difficult with the school holidays, April would be better from a Vaalie point of view.

Ahhh the Isuzu 4x2er has rattled and woken the Toy boys up :lmao: Fantastic mud dog for getting the ball rolling.

I'm in for March 17 -21 or April 14-17 ( I start standby on 18 April so I won't be able to recover you 4x4 chaps after that date :twisted: :twisted: ).

With the Western/Eastern/Northern /Southern members it could turn out to be a big event. :thumbup:

Looks like the Easter weekend is more favourable? (If so, we will need to make bookings because they will be busy.)

Maybe we can already start making a list of who is keen and what dates are better suited ..... Easter w/end (14 15 16 17 April) - OR - the w/end of 18 19 March - the Monday 20th is a school holiday and Tuesday the 21st is human rights day.

The plan is to sleep over 2 nights in the kloof. Any suggestions on Camping or accommodation for those two nights?

Add your name to the list ...

Andy & Sheridene - (either weekend will do but Easter might be better)

Tertius, Baviaans is what was originally spoken of and the feeling I've been getting is that there are guys that specifically want to do this route. It's far, I know, but that's why we want to do it over a long weekend so that there is enough time for travelling to and fro from both E/Cape and W/Cape ends.

Bit of an update, April seems to be a better choice and myself and possible family will come. The PE 4x4 community Forum members and group are also keen to attend. Fantastic crowd,if you met the East London /KWT group then they are the same kinda people.

Already committed to 18 - 21/03/2017.
Last visit there we stayed at Yellowwoods Campsite, which is a park site.
Have no problem with any place chosen.
