Plan is as following (plan may change). We are waiting for confirmation that there is snow on the Drakensberg and the Maluti's (eyewitness reports :Geek: ).

Drive down to Himeville on Friday (will be confirmed). Leave Himeville at 06h00-07h00 on Saturday morning, , enter Lesotho via Sani Pass , go via Sani Top (2,873m), Black Mountain, Thabana Ntlenyana (3,482m) and Mokhotlong (if weather permits we can see Mafadi - 3,450m highest point in South Africa almost due east).

From Mokhotlong the plan is to drive on the A1 to Butha-Buthe, and exit at either Caledonspoort or Ficksburg.

Proceed then to either Clarens or Bethlehem and sleep over in the Southern Free State on Saturday night. On Sunday morning we will meet again in Bethlehem a place like Wimpy and from there the Hilux convoy will drive back home.

As you see there is no date connected to this one, it is purely a do it as it happens adventure. So my advice is pack the necessary containers now and keep them ready. :thumbup:

Ek gaan probeer om daar te wees.

Hierdie komende naweek skiet ek bietjie geweer in, want ek jag oor twee weke en ek het besluit ek moet my geweer se teleskoop skuif.... (stupid idee gewees). :think:

Hierdie trippie gaan redelik flexible wees (en kan julle waarborg dit is nie 3Julie nie, want dan jag ek).

Heinrich,

Wat van ons gaan in by Buthe buthe en gaan dan op met die Thaleng Pass verby Oxbow tot bo by die Letsend Diamond myn. Van daar af draai ons in na die binneland toe en ry tot by Katse Dam. Jy gaan 4x4 van 'n leeftyd he in die sneeu en ook die dam kan sien.

Die ander opsie is om Van Sani af Thaba Tseka om te ry na Katse dam toe.

I was seriously looking forward to this, BUT, I will not have them finances available after this lekker fix of injectors and dieselpump.

I've proposed that we schedule a trip to Katse the weekend of 24 September (which is long weekend).

Het julle al julle trippie gedoen? Ek beplan ook so iets vir die naweek van die 31ste julie.

Gaan hier van Durbs af ry saam met 'n groep karre tot by Sani en daar oor slaap vir die aand, hulle gaan die sondag weer terug maar ek gaan alleen aan. Die plan is van daar af black mountain pass - Mokhotlong - Thaba-Tseka - Katse dam - Butha-Buthe - Fouriesburg en dan op gauteng toe.

Ek besluit nog waar om oor te bly en so aan. As enige iemand raad het sal ek dit waardeer en is dit ok om alleen te gaan, veilig en so aan?

Sal vir Swamb's moet inprop in spesiale thermal suits, anders kan sy dalk chip en kraak as sy val.
Toe nou die manne wat al het en wat kan, maak plan asb
