Title: Local Old Boys return to Hohenfels ~ 2010
Post by: Michael Alexander on April 27, 2010, 07:32:31 AM
Well, a few of us old boys decided to return to Hohenfels for a camp this past weekend..... it was a great weekend, with many an old tale being recalled..... the river was once again in a state of a minor flood, with water levels raised by about 1.8 m...... We worked out, that between the five of us, we had 202 oranjemund Years...... Adriaan Van Rooyen, Freddie AHrens, Gunther Salchow, Mike Stenson and Mike Alexander.

No Monkeys came to visit the camp, but we assume that's because they saw freddie a mile away.....

It still amazes me to this day, that there is a forest at this location......

Son in law, my braai is always clean

I will take you up on being an experienced hand at camping one day but why should my braai need reinforcing with more firebricks may I ask................??????????

On second thoughts, I think I'll let you use the outside braai   braii  36_1_72  braii

Mike...I just have to add.....Youre all BARK and NO BITE!!!!!!!  I can almost bet my life that most of the girls/ladies/women/ Boobsgrandma's and so on who lived in Oranjemund and still lives there would surely know how to Make a proper camp fire, braai, do the long drop thing and not worry about being bitten on the rear  arse and also do it better than some of the "guys". We then look after the kids, do the dishes and see that every one is fed, and has a drink.   :culo1: BierSuip

Sorry, just had to butt in on this one!!!!!  HA HA HA HA HA HA  image071
