Drivel on the dunes

21 February 2013, 13:00

This Article is dedicated to the trolls that roam the precincts of NEWS 24.  In fact it would not be in the interests of journalism at large if all the information of this article did not get out to the public and to their, the public’s edification.

There can be no doubt re the veracity of the article simply because the dunes exist in that neck of the woods, (Sorry that must read desert.) and will remain in that position until kingdom cum and to the pleasure of mankind and his accident-prone and recreational habits although the latter draws the interest of a certain brigade (Not  military) with the aim of polluting the atmosphere.

Interestingly enough the military does enter into the equation.  It is rather difficult to account for trolls and military personnel because trolls have a split brain making two of them, one being rather ******less.

The dune in question is/was named Dune 7 and therefore it was accepted as the 7th highest dune in the world. It only feels like that when it is being climbed              

The military had the nasty of using dune 7 as a marathon route   The troopies had to run up one side and down again on the other side. Sometimes the poor ouks were so worn out that an ambulance had to collect them and if they, the troopies, could not make it they were stigmatised.

The dune was also used by the locals for dune surfing where a mazonite board is cut to shape and serves as a surf-board. The only difference being the dune board travelled about 4 times faster than a conventional surf board.  Now normally trolls go for the unintelligent “reference” angle feeling that it may give them an edge while trolling. The reference here is “ Google Dune 7” Namibia.

On the inside curve of dune 7 there are picnic spots and the area lined with trees. Earlier years the area, too, was used as a bisley shooting range.
