A few weeks ago my friend Guy McDonald asked if I wanted to join his team for the GoodHope FM Adventure Challenge, a whole day of activities like shooting, zip lining, sand boarding, paint ball and others.

A couple of weekends ago I was invited to the Garden Route Rally with stages being held over two days between George and Knysna.
