Louis, during our trips to Kruger we have also seen very little YR's. Even during the recent cricket weekend there were a few forumites not displaying their YR's! Maybe they are all undercover or something. We will be in Kruger during July this year and I haven't decided if I will bother with a YR again!

Except for your YR on the car Theuns, I have not seen one during the March trip either.
Or any other trip for that matter. :hmz:

Hey it's like animal sightings - Right place, right time!!

I do get to see Yellow Ribbon's from time to time.

TheunsH - Please don't stop displaying your YR - We need to see fellow forumites!!

Please keep trying Theuns, I have met some lovely people in the park due to yellow ribbons.

Maybe these postings will help people remember.

I was wondering if mites are a shame of displaying YR. We did met ecojunkie at Melelane gate on Saturday morning when we entered the park. On our trip During last December we have seen a few and met some interesting fellow mites.

PLEASE LET THEM FLY.

louis, I also did not see any other YRs this weekend. Thought at least I'd see yours :)

TheunsH, if I remember correctly we'll be at Skukuza at the same time in July?

I was thinking if we ask the mod's if they cant put a reqeust the fly YR under Announcements, that way more ppl will see it before they start searching for a topic.

Hi Louie
I think we saw you, were your sporting a yellow chick on your rear view mirror as you passed I said to SO that maybe a forumite we were proudly displaying ours,but only met wildone who forgot his. Pity we did not meet. Have met quite a few in the past pls don't give up.

On easter weekend I only found 1 other yellow ribbon, and that person is not very active on the forum, but it was lovely to meet her. I think we need to start Sharifa and Dukes rare sighting challenge for YR's. :lol: :lol:
