MG, time is "getting few" now. I am sure you are excited and worried at the same time. :? I am sure you are going to have a great time, especially with all the family support and the forum. :D :thumbs_up:

This is my very 1st post so let me introduce myself. I am the 25 year spouse of Mgoddard hence my username Grasswidower (For one year while she is living her dream). I cannot believe the time has gone by so quickly. It seems like yesterday when you vaguely mentioned that you wanted to spend “some time” in the KNP but it’s almost 2 years ago! Engel, you have been and are a wonderful, loving & extremely generous Wife, Mother & Friend and everybody who knows you will vouch for that. You have worked EXTREEMLY hard to make your dream come true and you deserve it. I know that because of your enthusiasm, many hours of planning and research, umpteen phone calls meeting people etc that this will be a success. I’m going to miss you like .... But thanks to Alexandra Graham Bell, you will only be a call, SMS, video link, email or even flight away ( tks 2 the Wright bros). Enjoy !!!
God forbid you should come across a snake. After all the nightmares you have been having…
Love you lots

The 2nd Last Weekly Update :D

Time until I leave Doha: :D

11 days
276 hours
16612 minutes
996763 seconds


Billyf, Pumbaa and oddesy it must be the nerves, but strange I dont feel any excitement (YET). Sure as the days go by it will come :D

lorrainepring I see we will be at BnD the same time so we are sure to meet :D

Richprins I enjoyed and savoured every minute of our trip, I could not have asked for more :wink:

Now a very special Welcome to grasswidower
"It seems like yesterday when you vaguely mentioned that you want to spend "some time" in KNP"

True, :redface: and I apologize for not explaining properly that the "some time" is going to be a year :roll:

Just know that without your support and love this trip would not at all have been possible. I thank you again and once again will truly miss you alot :D :(

rusky you are so funny sometimes :D

anne-marie I think its a lot more than tolerance :clap:

Elsa thanks for the welcome for "Engel" :D

Hugh I will look out for you as well and thanks for offering to check up on me, but please dont report back to SO what I ate :?

I have just spoken to Loftus Caravans and "Engel" is almost ready for the trip. The sides and front of the awnings are being made at the moment, the mozzie nets were installed and the airconditioner is up and running :D

Today I will "move out" of the bedroom cupboard (not me, my clothes) and SO can have the cupboard back while Im not here :D

SO has offered to take the minimum so he can take all his weight allowance for me, :clap: I have so much to pack and the list is growing everyday :shock: I think if I mention one more thing SO is going to explode :shock:

In the next update I will give you all the details on the "blog" as I will be making my first post there and not here anymore :D

Until next week :wink:

Mgoddard

Mg - I can understand that you are not yet feeling excited, I'm sure that will only come when you actually enter Kruger, but don't worry, we are excited enough for you! You must be feeling quite stressed now with all the arrangements that still have to fall into place etc - wishing you well and welcome also to the grasswidow, will be interesting to get his side of things as the time progresses!
