Pho­tog­ra­phy: Louis Uys Lo­ca­tion: Suther­land Ve­hi­cle: De­fender 90 A snowy set of wheels, Wit Blikkie (White Can), as this De­fender is af­fec­tion­ately re­ferred to by the Uys fam­ily and friends, de­parted on its first off-road trip as clean as the day it was shipped from Soli­hull. “The maiden voy­age was from Cape Town to Mar­cuskraal 4x4, Ceder­berg and Suther­land (via R356). “This in­tro­duced Wit Blikkie to dust, rocks and gravel roads and the most beau­ti­ful dis­play of stars in the clear Suther­land sky. Wak­ing up in Suther­land must have been quite a shock though, as Africa was cov­ered in a thick snow blan­ket. The pic­ture was taken on the Ver­laten­kloof pass be­fore head­ing back to Ceres with a gen­er­ous serv­ing of Ka­roo mud and pud­dles. What a welcome,” says Louis.
