Still waiting to hear what you thought of my roosterkoek, M367. :tongue: And btw, this thread is very much alive as I still need to post photos here. Including one of yours late on Saturday night. :twisted: :twisted: :tongue:

Eish Tannie Zettie.
I must tell you.
I nearly killed a Natal Spurfowl because it "pinched" a piece of that roosterKoek. :lol: :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

When you come over for a braai again, I'll make it again. :lol: :twisted: :P


I'm sure the Oom would like to publish his photos here, but here is a taster of the cleanup in action:

It could also serve as a bum photo. :lol: :lol: :lol:


The guy with the bum is Vlakvarksegat (rougly translated to Warthog's Hole) - uhm, pun intended. :twisted: :twisted: :lol: :lol:

Yeah, regrettably so, Micetta. :cry: :? :wall: The LO's were too young to go, and heck, I wanted to get into the Oom's good books. :twisted: :twisted: :tongue: Took Sprocks' LO with too. So the four of us wandered off in the direction of Timbavati, and had pretty awesome sightings to top it all. But my heart was not in it. I wanted to walk next to the Elephants River. :| :?


I think I should drop this goodie-two-shoes act, don't you agree? :huh: :rtm: :twisted: :tongue:

Returned on Friday (29 April 2011) and I wish it was a week ago sitting in Balule! :( :tongue:

It was a super get together and we should do it again. I have also enjoyed meeting old faces again as well as meeting new faces! :thumbs_up:

A special thanks to Lowveldboy for making this a success as well as the mites behind the scenes, like Bert and Bunnyhugger! :clap: :clap:

Very sad was the news from Geocor about PetraJ's accident...I'm glad you and the boys are doing OK...you are still in our prayers! :thumbs_up:

Herewith a few photos of our official clean-up:

On our way to the river we came across this mom and her LO:

On the Olifants bridge:

Image

The guys from SANParks escorting us and doing a great job:

Image

Off the truck and down to the river:

Image

Sprocky hard at work wearing his special Shark shirt for the dirty job! :lol: :lol:

Image

Mighty Mites hard at work:

Image

A view of the Olifants river:

Image

A half eaten Leopard tortoise from the banks of the river:

Thanks again it was really a great experience! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Well, I will be back at Balule tomorrow with Lienca, :twisted: I lost something that I have to go search for. :tongue: :tongue:


There is strong evidence to support a rumour that a clean-up crew recently moved through the area and cleaned up all the junk. :tongue:

If you threw your name away, chances are it's been inserted into a black garbage bag. :slap:
