I am still looking through my photobucket for some photos of the first international forum meet in Kruger. This is where they almost had to send out a search party. :redface:

After that, MM's reputation was sealed :wink:

I have heard the story before MM. (Beats the tentpoles one by miles).

But thanks for the reminder.

Result - another good belly laugh.

Its no wonder Stephen Nel starts quaking when he hears MM is coming to stay.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?

Heks also has to document her extreme reversing skills on low level bridges ...
