Wanda, the Angels will help you with all the tips you need - you are even welcome to borrow some gear.

First tip

Don't pitch tent in a hollow in the ground, especially if the said tent is not waterproof and it looks like rain:

Ok, second tip….
Do not use bright lights…it attracts goggas :twisted: …the goggas attracts spiders, geckos and frogs :twisted: :twisted: ….the frogs and geckos attracts snakes. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Rather use candles or something like a paraffin lantern…unfortunately does not give much light, so watch out where you step. :whistle: :lol:

And the snakes attract honeybadgers. Which in turn attract leopards, and then it really gets dangerous!

Don't forget to bring firewood and two long sticks for making a fire. (And reading the above, make sure you make the fire in your neighbours braai. ;) )

Anyone else wanting to put the money where the mouth is, or......?

Wanda, if you take this up, I will gladly pitch the tent and make the food, free of charge but for a few cold ones. :twisted:

Pffft…typical male :roll: …thinking a woman cannot pitch her own tent and braai her own food…only good for carrying beers? :roll: :tongue:
I bet you R200 that Wanda can do all of the above on her own….if I win, you pay the R200 into the anti-poaching fund …deal? :D

:naughty: Oh this is what happens to someone when they are unfortunately thrown back to the Dark Ages. Shame on you guys. LOL

@DB and Jumbo thank you very much for the tips :clap: , despite having grown up largely in the rural areas I probably would have made that mistake on the lights. Was already planning to take one of my gas lamps with me. Just imagine the disaster.

As for you Mr DQ I can only pray for you because it's on sir and you my dear friend are going to lose big time. :dance: Are you scared enough yet? :twisted:

@Scipio: no need to worry sir, except for that tent thing - all thumbs and 2 left feet you know, I probably would give you a good run for your money in the fire making department. I've been banned from making the fire in my house because they men say I'm making them look bad. :lol:

@Jumbo: This one is for the angels girl, men are only passengers in this trip. :lol:

Date and time to be confirmed folks and some people are so gonna be eating their words and I want documentary proof. :tongue:

Great stuff, Wanda!!! :clap: :clap:
Did not think you will say no to a challenge! :wink:

Mods, maybe this topic should be moved …or new one created in “Wild Projects”? …maybe also change the heading…something like: “Wanda goes wild” :lol:

@DQ…don’t be so sadistic!! :lol: Do you have any idea how hot it is to camp that time of year…not to mention the thunderstorms! :shock:
