    13 days into lockdown! As I look longingly at my new baby,OKTO Villa no 54, parked up with nowhere to go,all plans in place but not knowing when they can be executed, our minds start to wander back to a time when we were younger, when the ability to solve problems lay squarely in our own hands,life was for the most part carefree,family and friends close.

    But age creeps on, families grow into their own futures,friends remain and when you can get out there,new friends are made.

    To caravaner’s, friends old and new have you ever thought of getting out there as members of an “Old Toppies Club” doing “daft things” away from the eyes of family who who would skywards at ” inappropriate” behaviour.

    Caravan Parks will be struggling for some time after this Covid 19 virus has subsided and would be willing ( I think) to give exclusive use of sites to an “Old Toppies Club” for special events.

    Disco’s 60’s to 70’s music – 4pm to 7pm – legs would be gone after 3 hours!

    Sports days – 20 meter Egg and Spoon races,Sack races, Hopscotch, Whiskey Tasting, Cake Competitions, and any other of a myriad of stupid things we used to do,most importantly laughter and companionship.

    This club would  only be open to people between 60 and 110 years.

    Anybody out there who would like to share this experience, or am I just  bored,old and bonkers.

    Tussen provinsies of ook in dieselfde provinsie as waar jy woon ?

    Ek is nog nie seker nie maar dit mag wel oop wees tussen provinsies maar dit sal beter wees om hierdie jaar se reistogte maar te kanseleer en om volgende jaar alles te doen wat ons nie die jaar kon doen nie.

    Kan ‘n mens so lank wag ?!?!?. Hulle se aanmekaar dat jy nie tussen provinsies mag reis nie maar niks van in jou provinsie nie. Ek gaan een of twee karavaan bel en hoor wat hulle se.

    Ek het klaar uitgevind.
    Blykbaar word alle reise vir vakansies en kuiers uitgesluit. Jy behoort (met die nodige permit) huis toe te gaan as jy in dieselfde provincie vasgekeer was. Ons sal nog ‘n bietjie geduldig moet wees. Dit is iets wat jy leer as jy al langer as 30 jaar kamp😀.

    Een van julle vorige vrae was waar mens lekker kan kamp naby.  Ek sal De Oude Molen naby Francshoek aanbeveel. Heerlik, skoon ablusies, pragtig gras, lekker koelte en veilig. Bietjie raserig oor na weke maar baie naby. Lekker kamp

    Ek is nou baie lank by die huis vasgekeer, kan ek na ‘n karavaan park in dieselfde povinsie terugkeer ? Nog n vraag, is daar meer as een park in Franschoek of is Holandse Molen dieselfde een as De Oude Molen ?

    SUCK(S) !!! Caravaners are of the BETTER behaved people living a healthy outdoor life. Putting us in the same category, specially “social distancing” is a joke. There has to be a better reason or reasons rather than such a ridiculous and senseless one !!!. I am REALLY holding back on the expressive side of my vocabulary as I will be banned from this forum for life. My mood, a BAD one, is at a point where it will better not put any more of my thought in writing for the fear of being hunted down and shot.
