No Mullet. In The Eastern Cape we only bolt the crap routes. Don't bother coming it will be a waist of OUR time.

PS nice Derek.

If it sticks up out of the ground Marshall will bolt it - no mole hill is safe!
Derek, you and your mates from the Eastern Cape are unstoppable!

Thanks Garvin, glad to hear it's all crap.
I was planning a trip but now I won't "waist" any of your or my time.

If you haven't made the effort yet you probably never will. Read the bottom of your posts. Cheap isn't it.

I'm under pressure at work. My boss is an ass. And it rained all weekend. Don't take things to seriously.

Talk however remains cheap.

Mistake Derek. Bumping into Garvin is easy. Mullet to avoid me, don't be in PE next week or Cape Town the next. Avoid Jozi in March, Bots and Zambia in April. Don't do Europe in Mei (to big sorry we can both fit in there). And those are only the things I have planned, I still wanna get to Natal soon. I love those Natalians they real cool folks.

Hope to run into you soon.

Noted. Thanks for the heads up Garvin. I've diarised your whereabouts for the following year and will be sure to avoid those places :eye: Derek, you don't make the place sound half as bad as Garvin does! I was starting to feel sorry for old Angus, a mate of mine, but if you speak true, I guess he'll be ok.
