Yes, I am!

No visas but safe to take your car papers with you, you are crossing a border and you never know what they needs from you.

Thanks Nadia. Are you the same Nadia that worked in Appel's magazine department at Uubvlei?

We too are thinking of Easter school holidays. Just dont feel like visa car paper etc forms etc hence my other query.

Hi Mike Thurtell

Oranjemund Spar will have everything you need, including fresh fruit and veggies. And I can say that even though I left there 2 years ago!

Enjoy your visit, my turn comes Easter!

Sorry, forgot to ask, Mike, does your Spar stock everything needed or do we need to bring any provisions (a bit of an old timer question because in my day fresh fruit and veggies was a onc a week affair from the back of a jowwells truck ...)

Hi Mike, we are thinking of visiting O'Mund. Do we need anything in addition to passports?

Yet another longtime residing Oranjemunder left us in December 2017.

Chris was given a good sendoff at the Gun Club this past Friday evening after a service down at the NGK.

Condolences to Elbie, Sus and Boesman!

The Photograph Board! / Cricket Club Names ~ 1955?
« Last post by Michael Alexander on February 06, 2018, 09:53:58 AM »
A longtime local resident gave me a photograph of what we think is the Oranjemund Cricket circa 1955, seeing as there is written on the back of the snap the numbers '55.

However we do not know any of the names. If you by any chance recognise and faces, please feel free to add to the topic!

Oranjemund Bush Telegraph! / Cricket Club Get's Knocked for a Six!
« Last post by Michael Alexander on February 05, 2018, 01:31:19 PM »
After a nice Friday evening of 6's down at the local Cricket Club, some frustrated individual saw fit to break into the establishment and smash two television screens, kick in a glass door and take a six pack or two of Hunters.

Drunk Thugs!

Oranjemund Bush Telegraph! / Eddie Heusdens Retires.....
« Last post by Michael Alexander on January 10, 2018, 05:22:04 PM »
Thought it worth a mention seeing as Eddie has been in Oranjemund longer than my four and half decades, Eddie and Solange Heusdens "eventually" left Oranjemund as pensioners yesterday after spending most of their life's in this desert town.

Solange came to bid us all farewell at Spar and we shall no doubt see them when they take up the fine art of pensioner touring....

All the best down in the Cape!
