Berg Alert 2016

Will post the story of our not-so-nice encounter with the guy above the Chain Ladders later.
Please advise if these were SANDF or Lesotho Defense Force soldiers.
We look forward to hearing about your encounter above the chain ladders - please PM me too as we may need further details...

It would however be useful to know what is happening with the officials from Lesotho, especially those operating illegally in South Africa.
Also, the SANDF guys aren't a threat to us - they're only up there in an attempt to keep the Lesotho guys in check.
