Not sure but meeting Herman and family for a NY's Eve party at Shingwedzi (2004) may have been the first SANPforum meet? I think Yellow Ribbons had not been invented yet?

Apart from list above there are some others who have registered but never posted in the Forums.

Met Meinfam (Arno and Louise) on 8th December, the day we saw cheetah and lions. The latter we were told about by Arno-the one's he has great pics of.

On our last trip in November/December, met with ChrisB and wife at Orpen camp - completely unplanned, they were walking around the camp and saw our yellow ribbon. Later that evening went for a bush braai with Bouf and husband. On the walking trail, met up with Gonza. All fantastic people who I would be delighted to meet up with again in future.
