I do believe the forums have grown WAY past any expectations SANParks had! Shows what a passion people from all over the globe have for SANParks!

Who remembers how Oom got to be known as "oom" :twisted:


Two very pretty girls were handing out samples in a supermarket. I forgot what exactly. I'm sure WTM will remember, as this day must be permanently etched in his memory. The Wildtuinman strolled by and froze when he heard them say: "Would you like to try some, Oom"?

:lol: :lol:


:|
Will I ever forget that? Till this day I break out in a sweat when I walk past the deodorant rack. :?

OK at DQ's request, a few more oldies. As I'm only online now and then all at once, will have a look at the "answers" at a later stage :lol: :

1. Who saw the first lion on the old Orpen cam?

2. Who were the first mods?

3. Where was the first official meet held? "Oom" will remember, he got SO lost! :twisted:

4. Who made the first trip report for whom?

Let's see who remembers! :P

DB - thanks for alerting me to this thread

GP - the legend returns, where you been hiding?

1. Can't remember, could have been Bushbaby?

2. GP & Bwana definitely. W@H may have been a mod from the beginning as well.

3. Wasn't there, but I remember some photos of people knocking each other off poles with cushions.

4. WTM did the first live feedback report - I think GP was passing on the messages.

I've got a few of my own :

a) What was GP's favourite insult?

b) Where did Bert see his first Kruger lion?

c) Who was the first official forum baby?

d) Who were the first (only?) forum members to appear on the webcam?

No, as in: you weren't there.
Yes, as in: you remember correctly.... that was the "Pillow Fight Meet", aka first (unoffical) international EuroMeet (25-27 May 2005).

As for first lion(s) actually seen on old (or old old??) Orpen cam, I dunno, but I do know the pride of four that I saw one evening in spring (EU) 2005*) may have been the first submitted to the Orpen Cam HiLites.

*) I remember Bwana (?) and Sharky seeing them too, but somehow they missed capturing the frames...

Bwana, GP, WTM and W@H were the first mods 8) So W@H has been a mod since mods were appointed here. He is VERY old....


Bwana and Twigga were the only forum members to appear on the webcam? While they were on honeymoon in Kruger?

After a quick look through the Trip Report forum - this seems to be the first trip report posted.

Was this the first sms report ever sent in?
