North gate is a large shopping centre in the northern suburbs of JHB. Next to the Coca cloa dome where they have al sorts of exbo's and concerts

Just north of Randburg on the northern side of the N 1 , off Malibongwe Drive (previously Hans Strydom Drive) which leads from the N1 to Lanseria airport and Broederstroom .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

I've had a look at my scedule and as things stand, I will be there.

Is the time OK? Many people go to church and it might be a bit of a rush.

:hmz:

If the meet is later on in the day (than 1pm), I might let Hawk out the cellar and allow him to have a glass of water and crust of bread with you guys .... I will be there to keep control of the situation though! :twisted:

That would be fantastic DB. :D

I am working 2 days a week in the Free State now, hence my early uncertainty about being able to attend. It does seem that for all of next month, I will only be leaving on Monday.

I would love to meet up with you and Hawk. 8) I am so happy to see that you are going to allow Hawk the opportunity to spread his wings.

I would love to be there especially if DB and Hawk are going to be there. I will have to make a plan
