Put Foot Rally Entries

skye put foot rally

Skye Says: Perceivably too high maintenance for this kind of thing. Prepared to forego 5-star hotels and floss; and rough it up all in the name of a good jol (and charity obviously). I’m a carnivore, have a self-deprecating sense of humour and I won’t drink your beer 🙂 What more do you need?

christo put foot rally

Christo says: I’m a slightly proud member of the human race. I have lots of reserves and could go hungry for days if needed, although I’d prefer if we could braai every day on the trip.

willie put foot rally

Willie says: I’m an inventor and an innovator. I’m the guy you need on any trip through Africa.

annamarie put foot rally

Annamarie says: We are very fortunate to visit this special people in Bushmanland in Namibia. They also forms part of our project of upliftment and responsible Tourism. Winning this will give me the opportunity to give someone less fortunate than myself the chance to experience the wonders of Africa.

Frikkie says: Ek hou van braai, en ek hou van Afrika. Sit my in die bos met ‘n vuurtjie en ek’s op my gelukkigste.

rikus put foot rally

Rikus says: Hi, I’m Rikus, and I’m a musician. That alone should tell you that I need your votes to travel. Do you know how many pizza’s a bassist has to deliver just to visit his parents, nevermind go on holiday? Well, I do… Furthermore, I LOVE The Braai, I always get photo-bombed, and I’ve never been North of South Africa. Oh, the girl is just there so more guys will like my pic 🙂

Put Foot Rally – Win a trip through Africa

I’m so super stoked and you should be too! We’ve managed to organise some wheels for a little adventure through Africa. The Put Foot Rally ( is going to take us through 7 countries in 17 days in what is being billed as the first ever social rally in Southern Africa. This no route, no rules, no holds barred trip through Africa will see us kicking off in South Africa with our first stop in Namibia. Then we’re off to Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique and wrapping it up in Swaziland. It’s Braai Time in Africa!

Keen to join Put Foot Rally?

OK, so it’s obvious why I should be so fired up, but why did I say that you should be too? Well, as luck would have it… there’s an open seat in our Landy, and it’s reserved for one of you guys… and it’s not gonna cost you!

So what do you need to do to get in on this action?
Pretty simple really:
1) Take a picture of yourself at a braai (or something Africa related… or both)
2) Email that picture to me (, accompanied by 2-3 sentences justifying why you should be chosen
3) I’ll upload that picture to both Braaiboy’s FaceBook page as well as on my website
4) Ask your friends to vote for your picture

The 3 pictures with the most website votes and Facebook likes will be entered into a lucky draw, and the winner will join us on the trip of a lifetime.

Good Fellas – I’m choosing the smart way home

Good Fellas - The Smart Way Home

Good Fellas iconIf I were a cat I’d definitely have used up 8 of my 9 lives already… and thank goodness a couple of “Good Fellas” came across my path recently, so now I have a good chance of making that 9th life last a little longer.

I think it’s been established that I REALLY like to braai, and like most South Africans whenever there’s a braai, there’s a good chance you’ll find a couple of Beers, Ricky Louw’s, Klippies & Coke and all their friends. Now all this braaing & drinking inevitably leads to a lot of drinking and driving… I myself have been guilty of it many times. The fact that I’ve only been locked up once is a miracle and something I’m definitely not proud of. Since my little incident many years back, I’ve got no trouble handing the keys over to my wife after the party and she drives us home, but what do I do when she’s not around? Well… I drove home drunk of course. So why am I telling you all of this? And, who are these guys that are going to save my 9th life? I introduce you to “Good Fellas – The Smart Way Home” (

Good Fellas – The Smart Way Home

Good Fellas have been around for quite some time now, and they offer to take you home, in your own car, so you don’t end up leaving it at a mates place/pub and sitting with a hangover (and no car) the next morning. But it seems we’ve been a bit reluctant in South Africa to take them up on their wonderful offer (myself included), but as of today, I’m proud to say that I’ve now got a designated driver on call!

Please go check these guys out and sign up, and whenever someone offers you “one for the road”… feel free to have two! 🙂
