Join our com­mu­nity

Go! Camp & Drive - - Eds Letter - EDI­TOR schalk.jonker@me­

There’s one com­ment we in­vari­ably get when we in­tro­duce our­selves to peo­ple in a camp­site or on a 4x4 route: “Wow, but you have a great job!” And you can’t ar­gue with this – there are def­i­nitely peo­ple who are much worse off than us when it comes to work­ing con­di­tions. We get the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore new places, test drive the lat­est ve­hi­cles, and ba­si­cally take caravans off the show­room floor and go camp­ing with them (like this month with the new Jurgens Penta – go have a look on p. 86). The big­gest perk, how­ever, is that you trust us to tell you about the things we see, hear and ex­pe­ri­ence, and that we can help you to plan your next trip, ve­hi­cle, or car­a­van. So yes, in that sense we do have a great job and it’s fan­tas­tic to be part of this com­mu­nity. But the magazine is only one as­pect of who and what we are, and once you’ve fin­ished read­ing it you won’t have to wait a whole month to re­con­nect with us. We are also on your com­puter, tablet, and smart­phone. We have more than 57 000 Face­book friends and we share news, tips, ar­ti­cles, recipes and com­pe­ti­tions daily on this plat­form. And some­times we just chat­ter like mon­keys in a camp­site about this and that or ask ad­vice about where to go for the week­end. So, come join us. Type “go! Drive & Camp” in the search bar and click “Like”. This is also where you can show us pics of your last hol­i­day. You might just see your photo in next month’s magazine. Safe trav­els.
