Another SMS from Arks:

"Spotted the SANParks chopper when I was on the S36 and later on the S126. Cool that tomorrow I'll be flying over KNP.
Ian collects me at 0700 and we are out in the field until @ 15.30 or later - depends on how it goes. Can't wait but must get some sleep"

She must be so excited!!!

Another SMS :D

"Amazing day, Pippa is posting a brief SMS report in the ET thread, details and pics must wait until I'm home. Also should be a news story with pics on SANParks home page. Now get your 2007 entries in! Perhaps you'll see a likely ellie on your next trip! I'm exhausted but still a bit 'high' so enjoying the stars, my fire and the occassional hyena whoop"

Can't wait to read more and see pics!

I thought ET phoned home and left on a BMX bicycle in 1980 :?

Waiting in anticipation for the Arks' first hand account report.
