    Thought it a good idea to start a thread where us Mexicans can chat about a convoy to SA for a week of socialising at Cape Jaffa.
    Still need to confirm our plans but at this stage travelling to SA on Wednesday 7th. and home on the Monday or Tuesday.
    We are taking the D4 for same sand driving driver training with all the electronic wizardry and towing the camper as a test run before our big trip.
    when are others traveling ?

    Dutchy, have you confirmed what days you are travelling yet? noticed you had booked a site:)

    I am a morning person so happy to leave nice and early to beat the traffic out of Melbourne. For work I try to hit the Monash car park by 6.00am at the very latest either that or leave it till after 9.30. Its 600km for us and 7 hours without stops.

    What are every ones thoughts?

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should, besides I am travelling in convoy with a Pootrol, Paj and Toymota, no point in just leaving them in a trail of dust and diesel fumes only for them to catch up with a D4 in limp mode crawling down the hwy.:rolleyes:

    Na, don't know yet. I think it'll just be myself. I'm currently in the negative in my annual leave days, I might try and take the RDO before instead of after the weekend. Just comes down to work in the end.

    Matt, we wont be doing the 'early start' but dont change your plans to suit us. We have allowed 8 hrs for the drive, so leave 9ish and arrive around 5 pm.
