River Trip - Molototsi Limpopo

Wed Aug 08, 2012 8:51 pm

We went on our first 4x4 trip this past weekend. We went with a group of about 17 vehichles. We got into the Molototsi river near Die Eiland resort. I.m not 100% sure how many km we covered but I guess it was about 150km. The first day was mostly sand driving with a small rock or two that we had to pass around. We started setting up camp at about 16h00 in the afternoons.

The next day we didn't cover to much ground. Obsticles was bigger and a bit more technical. We covered about 30km on day two.

On day three there was some more interesting and challenging obsticles. Lots of rocks, climbing etc. Some sand pit wherw we had some fun.

On the trip we stopped @ 11h00 or so for brunch. It was a very casual trip. Nothing that forced us along. The trip was self sustaining so we had to carry everything with us and what went in with us left with us.......except for some voetspore and evidence that we drove there.

I learned alot on this trip, my first 4x4 and my first 4x4 trip. I really really enjoyed my pajero. The OME lift I bought the pajero with was amazing. Mud terrains........not sure if they are due for replacement if I will fit them again. Had no problems with them but for what I want to use the pajero for, I believe all terrains will be good.

I realised the WONDERS off diff lock over the weekend. AMAZING invention. :lol:

I still have alot to learn but this weekend was a start. I realy enjoy the pajero and it is just an amazing machine. I enjoyed it on the road for the first few months but after this trip, I love it offroad.

Some pics off the trip....I had the only pajero but there was 2 colts and a triton from the mitsubishi family.

Looks like a fantastic trip.

Hope you realise that you are now addicted for life? Once this is in your blood there is no cure.
