We presented training at Ou Trekpad again this past weekend. After the good rains we had in the Western Cape there was a LOT of water all over the place. At least now the guys know how to do water crossings!!

It was a lot of fun. Just a pity Carlo's very fine Voetsek Hilux popped a center bearing on the N7 just past the weigh bridge and had to be towed home...... by the Jeep... :silent: :silent: :silent:

Here's Carlo doing one of the smaller water crossings...

There was no space to pull over on the N7 and the road was very busy.. Hulle het ons amper omgery daar.. :silent: :silent:

We had an Amarok, an SFA Hiluxe, a Vigo 2.5 D4D SRX Hilux, a Prado and my Wrangler on the trail.. It was a LOT of fun.. :thumbup: :thumbup:
