So far the weather is looking very good for the weekend of the 28th :D
Bethlehem it appears is not for sissies.
Highs of 17` and Lows of 3` are the norm!!! :shock: :mrgreen:

I'll bimble along at about 120 kts. but It wont hurt for one of us to get to Gariep a little early as you can wait a while for fuel. I think we had best phone ahead and let them know we are coming. How many of us will there be? So far I only know of you and Russell.

Spoke to Jaco at Gariepdam. No problem for avgas friday and Sunday - first one in to call him on 0826531889 or 051 7540070.

I will go low level to Gariep but looks like we will have to file a flight plan FAHV - FABH and they are planning to have standard joining procedures. Coming from our side it will be: Ficksburg - Fouriesburg (24 nm's) - abm Retiefsnek (10 nm's - expect joining west side Gerrands dam (5 nm's))
