Mark, dit is 'n club event so ons gaan nie die mense beperk om te kom vir die naweek nie!!! Dit gaan almal kans gee om lekker saam te kuier en so bietjie die 4x4 ook te toets en lekker te ry.

Vir die wat nie weet nie, white knuckle is a 45 grade afdraande om te ry, so daar gaan heelwat opwinding wees en selfs 'n paar briekmerke op die sitplekke van die voertuie. :acute: :acute:

Hier is die mense wat gaan op die naweek!!!

Teenwoordig vir die Event:

1. JohanM - Johan & Fotograaf
2. 0000MS - Mark, Danelle & Kiara
3. Franken - Franken
4. A.J - A.J & Handbriek :shh:
5. Danman - Danie & Gesin
6. Delon & Esna
7. Koos, Rita & Tommie
8. Riaan + 1

Ek het gister gou besoek afgele op die plaas en al die nodige relings ect getref. Ek het selfs gereel vir 'n lekker bosveld tv elke aand!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Hier is die pad oppad na die plaas toe,
DSC04953.JPG
en daar was baie wild te sien langs die pad. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Die watertafel onder die grond is lekker hoog en alles lyk lekker. Die roete self is 'n besige roete. Daar is tegniese dele met wiel plasings noodsaaklik is asook om jou co driver the vertrou oor die obstacles. Ons gaan selfs hier en daar bietjie pad moet bou, maar dit gaan lekker wees.

Hier is die mense wat gaan op die naweek!!!

Teenwoordig vir die Event:

1. JohanM - Johan + 2
2. 0000MS - Mark, Danelle & Kiara
3. Franken - Franken
4. A.J - A.J & Handbriek :shh:

Koos hoekom kom jy nie met die 4x2 deur en kuier ten minste saam nie. Ons kan mos plan maak om almal in voertuie te kry en saam te ry. :beg:

Well, well, well.....what can I say.....wonderful weekend!!!!!

The week was long....damm long, to say the least, and finally Friday the time came for us to head North. North towards Thabazimbie, where we would all meet at 15h30 and travel to Mateke 4x4 Nature reserve and enjoy the weekend :dance1: :dance1: :dance1:

When we arrived at our meeting point 15h30 in Thabazimbi, Johan aka Torro Adventures and his camera crew, were eagerly awaiting all our arrival.
We quicly all filled up our vehicles and bought some extra sekel bos wood for the bush tv.

We arrived at Mateke, the 2000ha farm situated approx. 65km N/W of Thaba, where we were greeted by Theresa. She briefly gave us a rundown of he trails, camp-site and other activities.

Arriving at a well maintained bush camp , everyone quicky garbbed some refreshments, unpacked and settled in. The fire was quicky lit and everyone joined in around the camp lapa. We later had supper and 'kuiered' till late....

Saturday morning, some nice breakfast stuff was presented and we then headed for the bush, 4x4 game drive. A relatively mild to wild route where we stopped for lunch and snacks.

After lunch we headed back to the bush camp, where some enthusiastic walkers enjoyed the 'stap roete' and others an afternoon nap.

AJ was so excited to get away for the weekend and ended up leaving half of his camping kit at home :lol: :lol: :lol: Ou Vale was misbehaving but we managed t keep the temp. down and completed the route without any problems. OOOODS successfully wrecked my mag wheel and cap....but, no hard feelings...... :sobbing:

Satuday evening we sat around the camp fire and some liquid was absorbed and some good 'around the camp fire' jokes were exchanged, having everyone in stitches :drinks:

Then after a good old traditional Sunday 'healt breakfast', sousage, bacon, mushrooms and eggs, we starded packing up and headed for the hills.

A huge thanks to Johan and his camera crew for arranging a perfect getaway weekend. Really well organised :thumbup:

Tx, to 4 x 4 Megaworld Vaal Triangle for the prizes
Eric - Family_Dog REPCOM - tx for the loan of thE VHF handheld Club radio's, they worked well, no hassles!

We look forward to the next outing :!: :!: :!:

Pics will follow, when we recover.....

After the first warm up technical obsticle we managed to find a easy but very technical rocky section that required driving skill, outside navigator showing you which way to go. We lifted wheels, and had great fun here. :thumbup: :thumbup:

We did the scouting of white knuckle and it was decided as a group that we will not do this section of the trail as the possibility of serious vehicle damage was a great possibility. :shock: Here is some of the pictures showing the erosion and steepness of this section.

We had lunch under the Maroela tree at the begining of White knuckle and then did a turn around and back tracked to camp where the afternoon was spent relaxing and resting. :thumbup:
