      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Photos - Namibia Africa

Recommended Posts

Regulars will have seen our South African photo journal, which was basically just Cape Town and surroundings.

 

In the second part of the African safari, its up the Skeleton Coast, a stop at the old German diamond mining town of Lüderitz, and from the larger town of Walvis Bay into the Namib: the oldest desert and the driest region on the planet.

Beautiful photos but I'd never get out of that sand trap. How far from the town to those dunes.

I look at the trees and then at the dunes and I struggle to establish some kind of scale.

Thank you for sharing your photos. 300 metre sand dunes. Wow.

Bob, those dunes are a full day drive from Walvis Bay, first inland, and then south, and finally back west, but there are smaller dunes near Walvis. The biggest dunes are around a thousand feet off the plains, and quite strenuous to climb, but of course there are smaller ones more easily scaled, only to see even more dunes extending seemingly forever towards the coast. These guys saw more wildlife than we did, but we also spent a lot of time on smaller things like insects, Arachnids, and lizards.
