Thanks to maria, we eventually got sorted with all our goods. Bike and bike rack. The bike rack turned into a mission. The car is a 2013 (yes that is the models being launched now) and Thule have not updated their website stating that the rack can fit the manufacturers cross-bars. Consequently all sales outlets can't think for themselves and and told me it cannot work. After much missioning i decided to go with good old SA ways and Just Do It. Asking the 1 sales outlet to assist with the assembly he said that he was not certified to assemble but it is extremely easy - i don't think he heard the irony. The bike is on the roof rack and time will tell.

Thanks to Johnny we got our electronic toys with a 40% discount on SA prices. Hopefully the next blog is on the ipad. Goodbye S-tu.

We passed through Oildale. The oil drills make for a sight that is not seen at home. Through oildale (a real place) there were oil rigs, wind turbines peering over the orange orchards and solar farms on the sides of the road One might say what efficient use of the layers of earth at our disposal. Another might make the point of the extents they (we) need to go to fuel consumerism.
