Location: Lost somewhere in the travel tales,and don't want to be found
The countdown was on, 36 days till Krugerparking Image , then disaster Image , one of the ladies at morecat's (that's my SO) work Image and said that she will not be coming back to work, just like that ImageImage
Morecat was called in by her boss and was asked to change her leave , the boss was on his way to Canada for two months and therefore no time to interview, employ and teach someone to work in morecat's department. Image . Not much we could do except to change our booking.
So 36 days suddenly became 154 days Image ----Or did it Image
We were both Image
And then a big surpriseImage, on the morning of 17 March, Morecat handed me an envelope , along with my morning Image and inside was a booking for 2 nights in Kruger- 1 night at Letaba and 1 night at Tamboti.Image 154 days now became 3 days. What a huge surprise , the best Image ever. My shortest countdown. Let the planning begin.
We always caravan in the park, what do we need or not need for our stay in Safari tents? I do know that I would need something yellow for the car, so Morecat set to work on that.

Image

Image

Image

and I made a plan to make the cars aerial a bit more interesting

Image

and began to gather up some more essential items

Image

and recalling Barryels's report, I made sure the lens was packed Image

Image

:hands: :bcool: isinkwe :thumbs_up: What a wonderful surprise. :dance: :dance: :dance:

What a great idea you and SO have with the YR concept and the aerial.
Want to ask: Do you need a chauffeur? It is extremely dangerous at Tamboti and would recommend that you employee a security card there as well...I am also good at braaing...pouring and pairing wine ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

You must enjoy every minute of your trip and tell us all about it when back. :thumbs_up:
Lots of :cam: and do not forget to give your SO some :gflower: :D

Hi Isinkwe,

I guess if everybody is onboard and ready for their duties. Then I am just in time to report for dishwash duties.

:tongue: :w:

Looking forward to the TR.
