Kruger I would find time for even if I was working 24 hour days and in another country :w:
Chainsaws are a bit messy I find, with all the sharp jagged edges. But powerdrill-juggling, that I can do :tongue:

Hey Norm, you had better watch your step next time you set foot in SA.

Some of these boeretannies could quite easily play in the Springbok front row - and juggle...........

Thanks for helping with that pic Heksie.
Jip Norm was on the farm here. The one in the pic has a distinct ring around its neck. Looks like an old snare injury.
Will I be able to open a new topic here with some the stuff t hat I found on the trail cam? I know its not a Sanpark, but have photgraphed and videoed some interesting activities. One which was special was the interaction of a BH with a 3.5m python that was killed by a badger during that cold spell a week ago.
Today had the ultimate experience. . . Cracking fresh leopard spoor. Tracked it for a while, but lost it in the thick stuff.

BB, I grew up around country girls! It's amazing what they can juggle :shock:

Roan, I personally would be interested to see what you captured, if it's allowed!

I'll ask...
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?

When a Brownie is seen in KNP and BB's beard is grey
:hmz:
Should this not have read "When a Brownie is seen in KNP and BB's beard is totally grey" :wink:

But....before that happens, I am sure Heksie will find the Brownie :dance:
