While Barcud is in CT for our Nossob ecotrail trip, he has offered to show a presentation on his adventures in Antarctica.

It would happen on Monday 5 December, probably at my house, unless there is an overwhelming response.

It would be a fundraiser in aid of purchasing an extra 'trap' camera for Kgalagadi Guru. Donations would be requested (approved by VHRs) and light refreshments would be provided.

If you would like to come, please reply in this thread.

Oh BB I know its only 20 -30 minutes but we just wont be able to make it. That M5 is dreadful with all the road works took us one and a half hours from pinelands to get back here after church and that was a Sunday. I believe the N7 was no better.
I hope you have a few mites there though

I've been on that ship - Have we met Nkulu? Bet you know the friends I stay with in Pretoria? Both overwintered at various SA bases.
