Die Lesotho naweek was 'n baie lekker naweek....Koud in die nag en baie warm in die dag, slegte paaie, baie grappies & sports onder mekaar op die Radio's, groot kampvure en puik braaiers wat elke aand die kos voor berei het op die vuur.
Ons het die naweek vrydag aand afgeskop met 'n lekker braai en kuier so langs die vuur. Die kinders het selfs later voor die vuur geslaap totdat hulle bed toe gedra is. :wink:

Die lys van die volwassenes wat die naweek by gewoon het was,

Mark & Danelle
Riaan & Yolandi
Johann & Deidre
Franken & Elsa
Derik & Belinda
Marius & Carmen
Cassie & Magda
Johan

Daar was natuurlik 'n paar wat tot baie laat gekuier het en dit het sommer die volgende oggend gelei tot nuwe gesprekke en grappies. :twisted:

Die groep het van Ladybrand na Wepner vertrek waarna ons almal die Van Rooyens grenspos aangedurf het. Marius was dapper genoeg om die konvooi verby te gaan (met die Landy) en verder in die pad af te wag op 'n foto geleentheid. :twisted:

Yolandi was natuurlik baie op haar senuwees oor die chief en die grensposte.....

Ons het van die Grenspos vertrek na Malealea lodge waar ons ontvang is en na die kampplek gewys is. Die kamp is reg gemaak vir die aand se kuier en daarna het ons vertek op ‘n verkennings tog deur die plaaslike area, almal het darem kans gekry om ‘n paar plekke te ry en sommer net die mooi van die omgewing te geniet. :thumbup:

Ons plan om ‘n sekere roete te ry was egter van korte duur toe ons by ‘n pad aankom wat weggespoel het teen die kant van die berg, so erg dat selfs ‘n donkie senuweeagtig sal raak as hy daar moet loop. :roll:

Na ‘n uitputtende dag van ry en slagate misry en donkies vermy, nie te praat van hulle taxi’s nie is ons terug na die kamp waar ons gaan uitspan het.

Al die kinders het tog te lekker gespeel en die geriewe het dit selfs moontlik gemaak dat almal ‘n lekker warm bad of stort gehad het.
Die aand het heel vrolik en gesellig om die vuur verby gevlieg. Die volgende oggend het ons min wetend die roete aangepak oor die berg na Semonkong, via Roma en die Trading post.

Ons het deur van die interesantste plekke gery, en baie mooi landskaps tonele gesien. Cassie se Ford wou nie 4WD engage nie en ook nie die locker nie. :shock:
Na ‘n groot gesukkel het Marius en Derick besluit om Cassie te help. Hulle was by hom in die konvooi en die pad was van so aard dat jy nie kon omdraai nie omdat dit so smal was. Marius met die Landy het recovery gespeel en Cassie gehelp waar die nodig was terwyl Derick, Cassie se sleepwa agter sy Prado gesleep het. :thumbup:

Van die paaie was lekker pret om te ry, ander was bietjie vervelig en glad nie lekker nie, maar die eind bestemming by Semongkong het opgemaak vir alles.

Die waterval is spectacular!!! Ons was baie bevoorreg om ‘n naweek saam met great mense te kan kuier, en een groot trip vol pret en avontuur te kon deel.

Dankie aan almal wat dit mee gemaak het, julle mense is regtig tops!!! Ons sal nog ‘n paar naweke soos die reel.

Die wat nie kon saam kom nie, julle het regtig baie uitgemis, maar ons sien julle volgende keer as ons weer ry.

Ek sal more oggend die statistieke van die roete hierso sit vir die wat meer wil weet van die roete. Ek sal ook probeer om 'n T4A map te post sodat julle kan sien hoe ons gery het en hoe lank dit ons gevat het. :wink:

Dankie aan JohanM en Mark vir die reelings.
Dankie vir almal wat saam was en bygedra het tot n lekker naweerk!

Daar was darem 3 Hiluxe in die groep van 9 voertuie! Die Landie het nie eers eenkeer gebreek nie, en het tot op sy eie die Ford n keer of wat recover!

Jammer ons het julle nie gegroet gister nie. Ons het n koeldrank stop gemaak, toe jaag daai Landie vir my weg. Toe weer n nappie stop op Ventersburg, toe eet ons sommer iets by n restaurant.

Bye julle almal, van ons 3. En weereens dankie. Dit was great!

Hoe voel die "Chief" vrou vandag?Sy moet haat broek onthou vir die volgende trip se onderhandelinge in die berg land :lol: :lol:

Nee wat, sy voel heel gaaf. Sy het dit ook geniet, maar sy se sy sal maar uitsit tot die kleintjie gebore is. Dan sal die lyf die punch beter kan vat as nou.

Hoe voel jy na jou val, Marius?

Look what happened to a couple who also went to Lesotho:
http://www.leisurewheels.com/content/ne ... asp?id=230
When the couple arrived at their vehicle, the two youngsters were waiting, close to the Land Rover.
“The Land Rover was unscathed, and my initial thought was that they were going to demand a fee for looking after our vehicle. But the moment we were in range, one of them let loose with a big rock, which hit me in my chest. This was followed up by another rock, which hit my right hand, and then a third in the stomach. Stunned, I realised the guy who had thrown the rocks at me brandished a large screwdriver, and was advancing. I looked over in Thea’s direction. The other thug held her at kitchen-knife point. At that stage I realised resistance was futile, in lieu of our own safety, and we were ordered to lie flat on the ground, on our tummies,” tells Pieter.
The two men demanded the Land Rover’s keys, which one of them removed from Pieter’s trouser pocket. The vehicle was unlocked.
“We had, amongst other things, a Coleman Cooler box and picnic basket in the load area. While his tjommie was looking after us, one of them took out the cooler box and basket and threw them onto the rear seats. He then took twinflex wire that he had handy, and tied our hands behind our backs. We were ordered into the boot of the Land Rover, and one of the jackers joined us in the cramped space. He then chucked a sleeping bag, which we normally use to cover the cooler box, over our heads,” says Pieter.
The other jacker jumped in behind the wheel, but there was a problem: he couldn’t start the automatic Discovery.
“female dog! You come and show me how to start the car!” he shouted at Thea.
Thea was bundled out of the boot and to the driver’s seat, where she showed the “driver” that he only needed to turn the key further in the ignition to start the engine. She was then bundled back into the boot, along with a kick from behind. With the sleeping bag covering the couple’s heads, the Landy sped off from the Maletsunyane waterfall’s look-out point.
“While we were speeding along on this narrow and twisty mountain gravel road, they demanded our cash, credit cards, travellers’ cheques, cell phones and “guns”, the latter which we obviously didn’t have. They used the words “we will kill you!” quite often. I told them where my wallet was and Thea told them that her handbag was in the passenger’s foot well,” tells Pieter.
At one point, while the Land Rover was speeding along on the dangerous mountain road, Pieter asked their abductors to take the car and everything in it and leave them at the road-side.
“Don’t worry,” said the one jacker. “We will drop you off at a nice place. And then we will teach you a lesson.”
All the time Thea was praying fervently, one of them told her to “shut up! What are you talking about?” Things were indeed looking bleak for the Bosman couple. “But then her prayers were answered, the driver lost control of the vehicle and over we went,” says Pieter. “The Discovery hit the first terrace down the side of the mountain with its right front wheel and landed on the second on its roof. The two hijackers screamed at each other, confused. The driver came round and opened the rear door for his friend. Then he closed the door again, leaving us there, as they ran off with only my wallet,” says Pieter.
In the chaos Pieter had managed to unravel himself from his twinflex bonds, but couldn’t open the rear door. Almost immediately, though, a local passerby was on the scene.

Hel, Pieter, dis waar ons die laaste aand gekamp het. Hulle was "easy targets" dws alleen. Ons was darem n groep, maar ja, hulle is baie en kan n groep soos ons was ook oorrompel.
Die hele naweek het ek nie een gesien wat lyk of hy mik om te gooi met n klip nie. Sommige van hulle was nie baie vriendelik nie.

Riaan, in my tyd wat ek al baie daarso was het ek nog nooit onveilig gevoel nie. Desembermaand het ek by Sani top Chalets gebly in die backpackers lodge wat reg in die middel van die village is.

Niemand het gepla nie en vir 3 dae was my Hilux nooit gesluit nie. Die moeilikheid kom van die jongeres wat begin vra vir geld en dan maar geweld gebruik om dit te kry.

Die beste is altyd om groepe te wees en om in 'n laer beginsel kamp te maak in die veld. Dit werk altyd en dan as jy op iemand se grond wil kamp, vra jy die hoof toestemming en vergoed hom. Gewoonlik stel hy dan van die jong manne aan om jou kamp te bewaar en hulle is baie oplettend en sal ander verdryf.

Ek dink net daardie mense was ongelukkig op die regte plek op die verkeerde tyd. As jy die hele artikel lees is die twee bekend gewees as moeilikheid makers en hulle is nou met die gereg gestraf...... Ja Lesotho se gereg is baie strenger en meer effektief as ons eie land s'n...

Die vraag is hoekom wou hulle die LR steel.....? Oh ja, seker omdat hulle baie geld saam met hulle ry om die ding reg te maak :o: :o: :o: :lol: :lol:

Gap net! Om alleen te toer is altyd 'n risiky, veral in 'n vreemde land! Maar ek kan ou eending vertel as hulle daai ouens vang indien hulle nie al reeds gevang is nie sal hulle nie met hulle speel nie. Hulle vatti nonsens nie!

Hi guys. Thx for an informative thread. I was planning such a trip for the wife and I but after seeing the repercusions of a solo trip I think I'll give it a skip. It would be great to hook up on another planned trip (possibly May) if someone is planning something in the future. PM me or drop a mail. Thx
