I feel that nothing gets the adrenalin or the expectant juices flowing before going to paradise than starting a Trip Report, even if its still thirty five days away.

We will be leaving Pinetown for Phalaborwa on the 17th December at 2am with an eta of +- 12noon, where we will be meeting up with Heksie, Wendy, Sprokey, Leachy, Val and Dungie, so if anyone is around at that time pull into the Buffaloe Pub n Grill for a chow n chat.

After chow we will be on our way to Sable Hide for a sleep over. Just pray that the skies are clear as it is a full moon that that night.

Enjoy.

ImageSparrow, I hope the guys I sent to your place to Image after you cleaned my Image did a decent job.
I have a question , Do you take your Image to Sable Hide ?
I see you are going to meet up with some really festive mites, I hope you all have a wonderful Krugerparking experience , and get tent dweller to make you a breakfast on the flat skottle , Her/his :redface: new flat skottle is going to be Kruger christened in December. Hope we get to see Image tent dweller :thumbs_up:

Sparrow, we might be crossing paths as we will be on our way to Mopani from Tamboti more or less that time.

I share your concern as we stayed over at Sable hide two years ago also on full moon evening and guess what - low cloud cover the whole night with no moon in sight. But we were entertained by some lions roaring the whole night near the hide.
Please see if the froggy is still in the hide as some paid us a visit. :)

Image at Sable will have to find out or leave it at Phala gate for the night.

As for the garden services could you please send them a week earlier so I can show them how to feed the birds aswell.

Kaapsedraai make sure your YR is visible and Im sure we will bump into each other.

This weekend its time to take the wraps off the caravan and give it a late spring clean.

Also to remove all the non essential items as I plan to tow it as light as possible (just on 980kms to Phala) and do all the shopping there.

Item 1 on the wish list.

1) Cloudless sky on the 17th December.
2) Cheetah for Grandad as he has never ever seen one in the wild.
3) Meet as many Mites as possible
4) Still :think:

Time to practice the early rising time. We always like to be out the gate at sparrows.
