A life-long fan

go! - - Upfront Letters -

With ref­er­ence to the snip­pet about Oosie’s In­dex in go! #136: I also have all 156 is­sues of Weg ( Our Afrikaans sis­ter mag. – Ed.) I de­cided to in­ves­ti­gate and dis­cov­ered the fol­low­ing:


The to­tal height in me­tres of all the is­sues in a pile.


The weight in kilo­grams of that pile.

3 895,70

The to­tal cost in rands of all the is­sues pub­lished so far – bar­gain!

11 904

To­tal num­ber of pages.

Ev­ery is­sue fea­tures at least one place that my wife Ka­trien and I have vis­ited, although we’ve never been out­side the coun­try. I was born in Knysna in 1932 and the Gar­den Route and Route 62 re­main our favourite hol­i­day spots. We love moun­tain passes and de­tours and since my re­tire­ment 22 years ago, Ka­trien and I have driven more than 90 passes, kloofs and poorts. We en­joy Toast, Erns, Sophia and all the other writ­ers’ sto­ries and I of­ten reread them to ex­pe­ri­ence the scenery again. With­out the mag­a­zine, our hol­i­days wouldn’t be as en­joy­able. May there be many more is­sues to come! FERES KÖMMER, Springs
