We arrived home safely 3 weeks since leaving for KTP.

SO's "The Beast" got us there and back in one piece (all tyres intact).

A rare sighting for this year on our way out on 28th .......

at Kannaguass WH

Image

the first water puddle......there were many more, all the 'normal' spots were full of water

The "upper Kwang" (as I call it)

Image

on afternoon/evening of 26th we had 13mm of rain at Grootkolk
Nossob also had 13mm on 26th and on 27th had 12mm

so finally some rain.....this year Grootkolk had only had 4mm in January.

This is going to be a mish-mash TR, no particular sequence ......

As always Great to meet mites and other friendly folk along the way....makes KTP special...all the sharing

Mites met that were not cricket related...judik, Lionspoon and Spots (great to see you guys again, swopped units Uri no 1 for GK no 1, shared a spotted sighting, hopefully no more tyre problems) and Landy1 (quick hello in Nossob campsite became a long chat, a lesson in photography and thanks for help on camera settings - thanks for providing them with some ribbon click click)

Hi Richard and Rusty, it was great to meet you both and I'm really looking forward to your report. :popcorn: :popcorn:
Fantastic to see puddles!!
We got back to the UK yesterday and there's lots to do before I can start sorting pics but here's one to be going on with.
