LOCSA KZN get together
« on: October 09, 2019, 11:11:30 pm »
Aaaalll righty then.
The plans are falling into place.
Sunday 27 October 2019   LOCSA KZN get together @ Mqeku.
All are invited...better if you in a Lada but not essential.
Please note there is a R30 per person entrance fee into Mqeku picnic site.
Meet up at the Shell garage Kloof Old Main Road ( central point )
8:30 for 9:00 departure.
Tim has agreed to take some on the valley route through the rivers, so if you keen please let us know.
I opted for the sissy route ( mostly tar road )via the old Rob Roy Hotel to Mfula store.
The distance from our meeting point to destination is relatively the same so no one has to do excessive distance to get to the picnic grounds.
Those opting for the valley route PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE SOME RECOVERY EQUIPMENT ( for just in case )
Tubes are for hire at the picnic site for those interested in getting wet.
Long term weather forecast is predicting rain so if its wet we can postpone to the following weekend 2 November 2019.
Here's to hoping the weather gurus are wrong.
 Any queries please contact me via whatsapp
CORRECTION TO MEETING POINT.......SHELL GARAGE HILLCREST......NOT KLOOF

So   here we are
Sunday done and dusted at Mqeku
I'm no good at writing feed back reports so if anyone wants to write or add on please feel free.
We started at the Shell garage in Hillcrest as planned. I was first on the scene shortly followed by Calvin and Family, Brett and Justin, Tim and a little later Ventz rolled in..now just waiting for the super excited Gavin to pitch.....a few calls later and Gavz still a far way off.
The 9:00am departure ended in a 9:45 departure...but hey, we on our way.
Tim and Brett with co driver Justin split off at the Inanda dam turn off. The rest of the crew followed me up the hill to the top of the valley on the good ol black stuff.
The road down the valley tested the brakes on the long steep descent and tight corners. Getting about half way down I sort of got lost for a few meters and thanks to the ever helpful locals we were back on track. The good ol black stuff soon turned into the good ol dirt road with just as steep descents and tight corners and finally the bridge was in sight and shortly after, a turn to the right and off to Mqeku.
rolled in at Mqeku where we were met by the owner Sibusiso, a good guy who seemed to like holding my hand till I was finished introducing myself and paying the entrance fee. Gavin had turned back to top some petrol ( must have been too over excited to fill up before we left the Shell garage )
Anyway, long story short, the fires were lit and a group of other guys who were at Mqeku for the day were streaming the rugby match and some of the crew were over to watch the Bokke whip Wales.
No sign of Gavin till we were already finished the braai and mostly packed up ready to leave. What actually happed to Gavz only he can divulge.
Not long after He finally rocked up, we were on our way back up the valley on our way home.
Some pics to follow once downloaded.
