Sparrow's Sable Hide and other places. KNP, Dec. '13

Unread postby Sparrow » Tue Nov 12, 2013 5:58 pm

I feel that nothing gets the adrenalin or the expectant juices flowing before going to paradise than starting a Trip Report, even if its still thirty five days away.

We will be leaving Pinetown for Phalaborwa on the 17th December at 2am with an eta of +- 12noon, where we will be meeting up with Heksie, Wendy, Sprokey, Leachy, Val and Dungie, so if anyone is around at that time pull into the Buffaloe Pub n Grill for a chow n chat.

After chow we will be on our way to Sable Hide for a sleep over. Just pray that the skies are clear as it is a full moon that that night.

Enjoy.

Time to practice the early rising time. We always like to be out the gate at sparrows.

A very Happy New Year everybody.

Well we are back in the Urban Jungle and wishing we were back in the Park already.

Just sorting out the pictures and will start the real report once that is done.

Hang in there.
