On the 26th of January 2013 our official involvement in the Hand Me Down project began. Clothing had been donated from far and wide and we had a mammoth task ahead of us sorting and repacking more than 100 bags of clothing into black bags to be distributed in Lesotho in April.
An entire day was spent doing the packing by 8 of us, needless to say after we had finished we were all a little pooped. Further donations on clothing have since been flowing in at a steady pace and we will have to have another packing day soon i am sure!
The 19th April was the date for the first redistribution to Lesotho for the year. Leaving Johannesburg at 12h30 on Friday afternoon, we travelled in a 4 strong convoy, 3 landy’s and Toyota Fortuner (In Ryan’s words, “there is always one”). Arriving in Lesotho with very few stops and an extremely easy border crossing some 5 hours later. We enjoyed a very social evening at the Maliba Mountain Lodge’s restaurant. I had special surprise from everyone, they had organised an awesome birthday cake and everyone to sing happy birthday to me…thanks guys that was too cool!! It has to be said that Lesotho is breath-taking, its exactly what you would expect to see, lots of people on donkeys/horses wrapped up warm in blankets and the snow-crested mountains in the distance. Arriving at Maliba Lodge just after dark we had no idea the amazing setting that the lodge was situated in, this view would have to be soaked up the following morning. (more…)

We recently attended the launch of the new Warn Zeon range of winches at Warn South Africa’s headquarters in Johannesburg. Warn has packed the new Zeon range with all the performance features off-roaders said they want the most. From a heat-dissipating break down to an incredibly smooth planetary gear train, these winches are ready to hit the trail at a very reasonable price! For more info and pricing on this fantastic new range of winches, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We thought we’d seen the end of the unloved DC100 concept car when Land Rover announced it would not be the blueprint for the forthcoming Defender replacement. But the latest whispers from the corridors of Solihull suggest it might be getting a new lease of life elsewhere in Land Rover’s model line-up.
According to Autocar magazine, Land Rover insiders have confirmed that the DC 100 concept has been earmarked for development into a new crossover, positioned below the Range Rover Evoque. It’s an avenue that Land Rover’s design director, Gerry McGovern, is known to be keen to pursue. The DC 100′s chunky looks could easily lend themselves to a leisure-orientated 4×4 crossover!
According to the insiders, the new model unlikely to carry the Range Rovers sub-branding, but will instead supplement the Freelander and Discovery, which are currently being redesigned as more sophisticated leisure market offerings.
