Guys , I am returning home on Jan. 24 th for a spearing and skippering break in Sodwana .
My ex -girlfriend whom I normally stay with whenever I am in SA is expecting twins during this period ...:duh
Herman in Pretoria has been kind enough to offer his hospitality on my arrival .:king
Does anyone have spot for me on my return from Sodwana for the day or two max before my flight leaves (middle/late Feb.)
Alternatively any recommendations for cheap accommodation ?

And how the hell do you get from Jhb Intl. to Pretoria ? Are there trains/buses ?

E-mails for the main dive schools going to Sodwana also needed , have to bum a lift down ...:head
Any help appreciated ,
By voorbaart dank .

:confused: uh, just asking because I'm sure others will be curious, by any chance were you spearfishing in SA last April?
Static secrets

Abri. :D

I'm sure you can be accommodated in my small humble abode for a day or two max on your return. I work close to the airport so a lift there to catch your flight will also be on the cards. One of things we will be discussing during your stay is statics............:D

mail me for my number and call me anytime.

Shot Abri

Our Dive Club has got two sordies weekends scheduled. the 24th to the 27th jan and the 21st to 24th feb. about twenty of us all charge up there, but we all leave from durbs. it seems like you will be landing and taking off from joburg, right?
well, offer is there.
Cheers ,Skin ; will get in touch with you . Happy to pass along any info I can .

Griff , unless I can change flight dates ( which I doubt ) looks like I will just miss seeing you ; probably wont get to Sordies before Monday .

Fuzz , curious enough I WAS in close proximity during April/May . I trust her boyfriend doesn't think the way you do ... NOT GUILTY :D
24th ???

I might just be persuaded to take you to Sords myself ..... he he he .... Get in touch, brother - We might work something out.

The trip to Toti was a disaster - only dove twice, saw a BIG bull on the first one, and lost my stringer (Rockcod and shad) on the second dive to an unkown unfriendly .... Then one of our guys got sick and we had to come back .... sigh. Might have some photos (ocean and new girlfriend photos - no fish) soon.
OOPS ; did I forget to mention that 'Toti is Big Bull City ?...:D
Not for nothing is it rated the shark attack capital .

Thanks Boet , that would certainly solve a big hassle . Will contact you anon .

Sounds good to me.

I should be able to do the drive up to sords .... if we can organize a couple of guys (Herman? Hennie?) we might just make it a road trip. I haven't been down that road in 5 or 6 years .... hope my car makes it :D

How long are you planning on staying? And what about accomodation? And how's about a boatride or two? ... maybe even to Abri's Knob .... he he he
Not a bad idea ...;)
Perhaps we could organize a get together of S.A. forum members .
Griff is going to be there , anyone else interested ?
Jan maak n jol would be a good place for a serious meeting .:friday
As far as organising a boatride ; should be doable depending how busy the resort is .
Whereabouts in JHB are you SA ? Need to start organizing things ; I will arrive on the morning (early) of the 24 th Jan .
I'm not in Joeys - I'm in Pretoria. The 24th is a Friday, isn't it? We could drive up either on the 24th or 25th, like I said, the more people go the less the petrol's gonna cost us ....
