In loving memory of Booster

The faithful steed who saw us through a 9000km once in a lifetime trip, through crater-sized potholes and glue-like mud in Zim, through rain, shine and corruption in Zambia and through coconuts and chemically induced insomnia in Mozambique is gone.


Booster, a 2x4 Toyota Hilux double cab, was one of VERY few cars NOT to get stuck in Mana Pools. 4x4 landrovers and cruisers were getting stuck left, right and centre, but not our Booster.

Booster left us yesterday, tragically taken from our lives by a thief in Cape Town. Booster, you will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love you buddy and hope they'll be good to you!

Booster.......? Odd Name for a Truck.....I would think something like Rex or Mega-yota would have been better.

With all this crime you are not painting South Africa in a real positive light of late.....

haha. ya there is a story behind the naming of booster...

WRT SA - well facts are facts unfortunately. I love the country and will never leave but it seems that we are for some odd reason being targeted or something. Coz this is NOT normal!!
