Woke up last night to do the widdly-waddle & again could not get back to sleep, and had a light-bulb moment....

You know those moments? When the light's go on and suddenly everything is crystal clear? Well that's a light-bulb moment....

Anyway, The Africkaans me, (that's the not-so-clever-but-very-hard-working-me ) says to the English me (That's-the-clever-but-lazy-me)....(shadow was not there at that time),

And although "butt ugly" (my camper trailer) is actually.... Well...... Butt ugly...

No really it's the truth, it really is butt-ugly,

Dis n bietjie baai negetive vir n naam..... So  The English me says "What about R & R"?

Now them's of you lot whats did REAL army (like back in the mid 70's) will know that R & R stands for rest & recreation, (something we didd'nt get a lot of, especially yours truly as I was always doing punishment PT)....

But that's another story....

R & R......Rough & Ready.... Says me to me....

So after all that nonsense...

What say you guys? ROUGH & READY a good new name for my camper trailer?

Warren, I am not so sure about the Rough part, but it certainly looks Ready.   Ready for everything!   laughing

I would love to be at the saamtrek at Bloekompoort and see you arrive with your R & R Rig.

"Here comes Warren!   He has arrived!".   And with everyone in stitches of laughter, you will probably stand there and not even smile.yell   Yep, you are one of a kind.laughing

Great name Warren, do you tow it with the tent up?
If so, there are some shared detail with an Oxwagon, a SAfari setup, and a overlander that forgot to take down his ROoftop tent in the morning.
Thus OXSARO could work.

Hi H.. Goie more...

Jaa-nee... Dit kan gaan...laughing

Yip! I tow, tent up.... SA's first canvas caravan.... (Watch-out CI... There's a new player on the block)......tongue-out

that was one of my criteria when I cooked this lot up...

If I need to power-nap along the way / arrive late on site I don't want to have to do anything, otherwise I'm still tired but no longer sleepy (walked into that rat-trap with my off-road trailer).

The origin of the idea comes from my Army days and the Bedfords with the seil cover over the back. Fortunately, the RTT is an easy-Awn prototype and the canvas is just as thick as the Bedfords canvas!

Hi Colinfreda....

From your post above: - Yep, you are one of a kind.laughing

I just wanted to say, thank you indeed.

That must rank as the very best compliment anyone on the forum has paid me.

The rest just think I'm completely bonker's....

(and I really can't blame them, cause more-than-often-than-not, I think so myself)....

I live to be different, and If, a complete stranger (as such) say's I'm one of a kind, then as far as I'm concerned, I've finally, FINALLY "arrived" / made it in life...

Thank you.....

Warren, I think most forum members have summed you up as "one of a kind", they just have'nt told you.laughing   You certainly are one of the favourites around here, so you must be doing something right.  Yes, you are different, but you are real.wink   And we enjoy your tales, as only you can tell it.   I would like to see you and Herman together, you will make a good pair.yell

Of course you know that LM Radio is on the air again! From Maputo nogal.
Unfortunately they are still waiting for their licence to broadcast in SA. but I listen on live streaming when I'm busy with my computer. They play mainly 60's - 90's music and it's brilliant. Just google LM Radio and listen.
Your strongest weapon is your mind!
And then there's, Power Tools!

Dis mos nou n idea...

Exclusives are a dime a dozen... See them in every park...

Alledagse gesprek in n park.....

"Hallo buurman, (bladskut)...... Sien Jy't n' 2015 Exclusive"...?

"Jaa boet"..

(Soe bietjie stilte... terwyl hulle so staan met dop-in-die-hand en bekyk nou hierdie wit-box-op-wiele)"...

"Het jy enigeiets ge-modify"?

So bietjie... "Kyk hier, moes een van daai bree jockie's opgesit, somme drie duisend Zuptas, n van-mover, en moes my ou Toyotatjie vir n nuwe Ford F250 ruil"...

"Shoe"... "Dis moes n' hele klomp pitte kos"...

"Jaa.... (gesiggie val)... Soe bietjie uit die sak gedryf"....

"Lyk mooi.....En hoe vind jy hom"....

Neewat, boet, somme heel gemaklik....(Glimlag weer bree).... Kyk, hy het n bed, hangkaste, n kombuisie, stort en toilet, en n dining-room wat omskep in n bed"... 

"Enige probleme"?...

"Ag net een of twee klein dingitjies".... (La-a-a-a-nk stilte)"

"Soos"?

"Hulle het iet's nie reg gedoen met die water pyp en die water het gelek... Ongelukkig het ek dit nie agtergekom todat die mif reuk al klaar daar was, en die dealer wou dit nie reg stel, maar ses maande laater na-dat my prokereur CI ge-naader het hulle dit reg... Moes die hele paneel uit en nuwe, hout en paneele insit"...

"En nou ek is net n klein bietjie ge-warry oor die moontelikheid van n kraak boe die deur soos die Penta's"....

"Jaa ek't van daai probleem gehoor"......

ROER.....ROER.....ROER.....

Nog n alledagse gesprek in n' park

“Hallo buurman” (Staan ekkies op van myopvou-baar pool-lounger en lekker bladskud)

“Man, weet u wat, ek kon nie meer my nuuskierigheid weerstaan, en het vroeer kom kyk naa jou trailer en wil net weet.... Sleep jy hom so op-geslaan”?

“Jaa, nes soos daai ou ronde-bek Bedfords met die seil agter?… Dis wat my die idea ge-gee.

“Ek sien Jy’s heel gemaklik, hier’s jou kombuisitjie, jou opwas plekkie, Jou kleedkamer, en hier buite is jou sitkamer, pool-lounger en somme alles…Se my hoe breed is die bed”?

”Dis n volle dubble bed”..

“En ek het gesien jou stort en toilet is op die kant van jou voertuig”?

“Jaa daai-sort-ding doen ek weg van my eet-en-slaap plek”…

Waar de joos het jy op hierdie idea gekry”?

“Funny you should ask, It’s a bit of a long story"… 

"kom on sit"...  Wys ek hom na die pool-lounger...

"Jislaaik! die pool lounger van jou is heel comfortable, ek kan somme die hele dag hier le"...

"Two O’ clock one morning"…. (Ek sny die gesprek hier af want dit gaan aan vir so uur of wat)….

Warren, I really enjoyed your last two posts and had a good laugh.  It is so true!   Sounds like you have been listening real well to the other campers and having a good snigger about it.laughing And it is about time you get your own back on all the remarks about your Landy,  you can also make remarks.wink
