In extreme conditions, start the vehicle and let it idle for 15 minutes every 3 to 4 hours at night
Do not pour warm/hot water over the windscreen
Dan gaan die Port nie werk nie want hy is maar onder 20%, wat van Stroh Rum?

Manne, ek moet net vir julle sê dis n ongelooflike mooi dag hier in die Noord Kaap!
Dis wel koud, maar die son skyn helder en hier is geen wind nie.
Hopenlik is die weervoorspelling soos ons munisipale dienste!

Verder wil ek net vir die van julle wat tuis bly laat weet dat, indien dit die Vader se wil is, hierdie RTH on Noordkapenaars se GTG's gaan wees.
Ons beplan om dit n jaarlikse instelling te maak, so Cassie, Danie, Wilko, En natuurlik Riaan, daar gaan verseker weer geleenthede wees om saam met die Hiluxgroep hom aan te pak.

Allan dankie vir die goeie wenke, ons sal dit verseker toepas die kant!
Wat die soetwyn betref, hoop ek 12 bottels Port/Muskadel/Jerepigo/Hanepoot is genoeg! :cooldude:

Ek is kinderlik opgewonde!

Ciao 4 now!

The two 'souties' have also reached home safely. WHAT A WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!

To ALL the manne, thanks, thanks, thanks! You are all now officially accredited klip pakkers of the highest standard.

To the Noord Kaap Gang, you are a fantastic bunch. The stories, stickers, meat, wood, grappies - all will be remembered for a very long time. Oom Cobus, hope you made it home without the A-frame :tongue:
Clinton - a semi Noord Kaapenaar - hope you managed the long road home alone OK.

To the Gautengers Mark & Heinrich, glad to hear you made it back safely. And yes, last night's braai was an interesting affair without that little grid of yours, not that Piet even realized you were gone.

Ali & Piet, hope you guys made it out the valley ok.

Johannes & Pieter, enjoy the extra nights on the road.

Here are some pics.

Wow what an absolutely awesome long weekend... I've finished "cleaning-up" and "unpacking"... and currently I'm downloading some 800 pics + video... about 14.5Gb, give me some time... I'll start uploading pics soon! The video side will take a little longer, few days, as I have to prep the full hd content for web/youtube... just make sure you've all got enough bandwidth!

Friday morning was a very early and chilly start... the cold front approaching Cape Town was definitely affecting the Northern Cape weather... with The Road to Hell ahead nothing could dampen our spirits!

Campsite packed up, we're on our way...

Jissie boys, julle's vinnig met die foto's!

Ek en Piet wil ook net dankie sê vir die amazing naweek. Dit was 'n GREAT groep manne - kon nie beter nie!

Thanks Kaspaas dat jy alles gereël het en almal in goeie fortified spirits gehou het. Thanks vir Viljee vir die skaap en Lehan vir die hout. Thanks Steve for giving us something to write about!

I can say a lot of things about this weekend, but what impressed me the most, was the way in which this group handled a dangerous recovery. Everybody kept calm and in good spirits, everybody jumped in to help and did the right things. The experience in the group was just evident. I was also impressed with the all round driving skills. I've seen a lot of these kinds of events, and you guys were by a long margin the best.

As dit 'n jaarlikse uitstappie word, is ek volgende jaar weer daar. My vrou wil ook die plek sien!
