Local Old Boys return to Hohenfels ~ 2010
« 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......

Looks as though a good time was had!  The one thing I really miss are the "bush" trips!

I, Sir, Am an old an experienced hand at all things related to camping....... Make sure your braai spot is cleaned out before I get there and reinforce it with more firebricks....   catmusic
