The forums have completely changed and enriched my life. :dance:

I've met some wonderful people, with some becoming close friends. :k

I've spent many hours watching the webcams, or travelling with others in their Trip Reports. :clap:
I've found excellent info and advice, when needed. :dance:

The forums made it possible for me to become a SANParks Honorary Ranger.

I've also found some wonderful recipes from fellow mites!!! :thumbs_up:

Today I love the forums because I get to spend a rainy day on the sofa, reading everyone's wonderful TRs.

Well done Hawk and agreed BB. The bonds of friendship that started here and blossomed into lifelong friendships, around the world, both still in this board and away from it.

I've made some very special friends because of/thru this forum. BB and francoisd (no longer active here) were the first two forumites I met -- not surprisingly on a birding outing :wink: :dance:

When I go to forum meets, it feels like meeting an extended family with a common love and goal.

Thanks MM, you always know just how to say it. :gflower:

......................meeting a forum member at Letaba, who felt she "knew" me from reading my various TRs, and telling me that one of of my earlier TRs inspired her to book a holiday to Kruger, and she has been back several times since!!! :thumbs_up:

Seems like Letaba is your focal point for meeting mites face to face for the first time, Val :)

I couldn't imagine my life without these forums, which have also inspired me to become much more involved in SANParks and which have also enriched my life in so many ways. Whether it's knowledge, awesome friends or attaining a 2 decade long goal of becoming an SHR, the forum is indispensable for me.

You get to count down your holiday, take your holiday, and then write a TR about your holiday :D

When the forum is down like this morning I felt totally lost .. I thought All my friends must be wondering why I didn't say morning to them .
But what I like about the forum is that I can chat anytime .and I don't have to get dressed out my PJs put makeup on or worry that my hair is standing on end .and ignore mites that are irritating me ,, and wont hurt their feelings in doing so as they would never know
Plus I met so many super mites , learnt so much more about the Sanparks parks Visited some I would never have dreamed of visiting before ... and I could on and on for ever
