The weather was so bad around iSandlwana so I thought I would do a bit of a tourist thing so cruised around to a few of the forts, Prospect Itala Montgomery then took the cross country route ( without doubt the finest wildest most challenging road around in current conditions) across to Deny Dalton and then to Piet Retiefs grave, Dingaans Kraal and into Ulundi.
Its been years since ive done that, probably 30 odd. It was so much fun. On the way back Im going up a 30 degree slope, mud for Africa over loose stones, in low range first gear wheel locks on at around 5 miles an hour when a Fiat Uno with a whole local family on board with a sheeps backside sticking out the window ( probably in case of flatulance, or worse) screams past hooting his horn. Made me feel somehow a touch ........insignificant ?

Cheers
PS Get Paul to take you over the road, best views in Natal.

Yes some great views , we've done it a couple of times on the cross country back roads , did it with Anthony Coleman who was brought up in the area near the Hill of Execution ( Retief ) and Dingaan's Kraal , and with the ' Major ' Paul Naish . Have you been to the museum which houses the most comprehensive displays of Relics from the AZW , its next door to Fort Mtonjaneni ?. I didn't want to leave empty handed , it must be the Aussie blood in my veins ! , unfortunately , I had no choice , it's run by Nicko , good bloke , I asked for a job said I'd work for free , he hired me on the spot ! hahahahahahaha.

PS
I'll send you the pics if you wish , feel free to post them here if you'd like ? .

e mail them through Gary and I will post them, I was in mist and rain at the time hanging onto the steering wheel like grim death so no inclination to take photos.

I can imagine , we ran into some terrible fog in November , literally couldn't see anything in front , and it was night time ! . Took us nearly 6 hrs which should normally be 2 hrs ! . It was a little nervy I can tell you .
