Just spent 11 days as a day visitor and saw 4 yellow ribbons only. Barry and Hilda, Marie@, Fee and the one which Fee lent me. Such a pity as one looks forward to meeting other forumites. Barrie and Hilda, whom we met several times, gave us some good advice as to which road was best avoided.

NetEk, I googlelated the net and couldn't find a pattern, so had to ask around and got one mirror sock from a friend. (It was a huge seller I think in 2010) and then bought material and used the other mirror sock as a guide. Sorry I can't help you more but I do believ that there are other sewing experts that might help with this one. :w:

pops - I was in KNP from 7th - 15th October (Punda Maria, Letaba and Satara) and only saw one other yellow ribbon - Hilda and barryels. At Punda Maria, rodgerh came up to me and introduced himself - he saw my yellow ribbon.

Either people are not Forumites or, if they are, they either do not know about the yellow ribbon or choose not to display it.

Over the years, I have met several Forumites and enjoyed putting faces to names.

Hi pops,

Great to "see" you on the forums as well :dance: . We had a bit more luck and also met Dellac, Annie Owl, Hippotragus and umtali1 as well as the 'mites mentioned above. That is a total of 7 yellow ribbons :dance: . Might be as a result of us being all over Kruger again :whistle: :hmz: :thumbs_up:.

moobox,
put a ribbon on your side mirror that other forum mites could identify you and introduce them self. The best I saw was 4 different colors Yellow this forum,green another forum, black in support of the Rhino and red a birder.
But I must warn you; people might asked you;
- why the ribbon is the car a present from somebody?
- a other forum member will asked you,without showing his ribbon "who are you" and you new in the game will reply with your real name and surname thinking this person is nuts.Meantime he wants to know your forum name.
- You alway's saw it to late when a car passes you.
:thumbs_up:
But fly it it 's worth it.

I saw one yellow scarf on the mirror of a gold bakkie in the shady parking by the shop at Skukuza on Weds 9 October around midday, but the mites were not with the bakkie. :(

I have had mites introducing themselves when they were not flying a yellow ribbon themselves, and people with yellow ribbons driving past even though I could see they had seen my ribbon, but didn't stop to greet.

The funniest was a German man who wanted to know if the red and yellow ribbons were something to do with Germany even though the black was missing. :D

Val, I'll get you some yellow ribbon. We have a very nice fabric shop nearby and they stock a good range of ribbons.

I tie a yellow ribbon on both our side mirrors and I also have a ribbon tied to our trailer, so when somebody passes our accommodation and the car is not there, they can still see that a "forum" member is staying at that specific accommodation and maybe we will bump into each other at the pool/kitchen/bathroom, if I see a yellow ribbon in any of the camps that I am staying at in December, I will go in search of the people/person or I am going to leave a note on their car, just saying hello :roll: :roll:
