We visited Addo on Easter Sunday 24th April and as we were leaving one of the viewpoints we were halted by Pookie, rushing over to meet us and have a chat, because she saw our YR. :dance:

Pookie made some lame excuse about her YR was on the other car, but anyway, I was great meeting you, Pookie. :clap:

We only saw 2 other YR's but they just waved and drove on......even though I stopped and reversed...... :doh:

If they didn't see me reversing, I wonder how they spot animals in the bush.....may they have to be stationary.... :huh:

We always fly ours and have met some amazing Forumites, especially in KTP. :thumbs_up:

It is a great ice breaker to meet new friends. :dance: :clap: :dance:

Pleeeaaaassssse keep the Yellow Ribbon flying in the parks.

We were in Kruger from 28th May to 12th June. I forgot to take the yellow ribbons so we stopped at the Phalaborwa Spar and bought a pack of bright yellow all-purpose cloths and cut them up into ribbon shapes; they worked perfectly! Not only that but you could clean the windscreen with the loose ends . . . . :lol:

Before we acquired our own YR we met Mike Goss in the south of the Park on 28/5/11 because we saw his YR and stopped him! He was a bit puzzled at first until we explained! Sorry Mike, but we did get one the next day!

We met Aquila at Mooiplas waterhole near Mopani on 1/6/11. We were both watching elephants and he was chatting to someone in another car when he suddenly noticed our YR and zoomed over, delighted to meet another YR because, he said, no one ever believed that he would! Great to meet you Aquila, hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip!

On 7/6/11, near Tshokwane at about 8.50am we were passed by a browny/bronze BMW X5 flying the ribbon but though we waved madly, they didn't see us. Sorry we missed meeting you guys! Then on the same day after lunching on the deck at Lower Sabie we came back to the car to find a note on the windscreen "Spotted Cat says 'Hello'". We drove round the car-park twice looking for YRs, but I think you had left. Really sorry to miss you Spotted Cat - strange to think that we may have been on LS deck at the same time!

On 10/6/11 we meet Hobbit and Tweedle (by arrangement) at the Hippo pools, and then moved on to Crocodile Bridge for a cooked breakfast with them before exploring the S28. Lovely to see you again Hobbit and Tweedle and thanks for the loan of the walkie- talkie! It was a lovely day.

Thanks BB30!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

It happened by mistake actually. :whistle:

In December Hugh from the forums had very kindly loaned us her yellow mirror cosies and ribbons.
We used them in the camps and when we were driving slowly game viewing, but when we were driving at 50km to get to a different camp, I was worried that they may fly off into the bush, so I remembered that I had packed my yellow trousers, which I don't often wear as they are a bit bright!!! :dance:

Therefore when we returned to Kruger in March, we continued to use the trousers, and they apparently are now quite famous!!!! :thumbs_up:

Theuns, yes I have heard that they see it from the International Space Station!! :tongue: :tongue:

Not only should we pleeez fly the yellow ribbon, but also post our dates on the when, who, where list.
I know of 3 sets of mites being at Olifants on Sunday 11 and have arranged for us to meet on the viewing deck at 18h10 :dance: a mini meet :clap: however I am sure there are a couple more who have not recorded their dates :?

It worked :clap: :clap: I had the pleasure of meeting Hilda & SO, Ralph and Lenny at Olifants. Another little thing I have started doing, I also carry extra yellow ribbon, or yellow scarfs should anyone require one. Lenny's luggage was "in transit" and so was their yellow ribbon, they now have a bright yellow scarf to use and keep as a momento :D

I am challenging all saffies to follow suit, meet one another and donate a yellow ribbon where needed, enjoy this Forum :D

I also carry extra YR with me just in case... You never know when it will be needed (and so far it was needed 3 times! :wink: )

I have a roll (okay only a small one) of yellow Tshirt material so if anybody requires a YR just ask. I also have my name posted on the back window of the car and caravan. So next time you see it pop in and we can party. (Bush style of course "quietly")

We drove into Shingwedzi last Wednesday and spotted our first yellow and red ribbons - Davejenny! :lol:

We were staying right next door to BluTuna who had his ribbon on the door handle! :thumbs_up:

We had forgotten all about our ribbons and we were duly reprimanded by Davejenny. :doh: :doh: :slap:

After Shingwedzi we went to Pafuri and met with Frank again. We were staying at the Pafuri Wildnerness Camp so our car was virtually parked up until Saturday morning. We drove all the way home to Randburg with our ribbons flying like streamers from the roof rail. I did eventually remember to take them off this morning before leaving for work. :lol: :lol:
