Hi Forest,

Good to see you moving up to Nossob. Might see you on the road back on the 15 / 16 Dec to MP.

37 sleeps to go until we arrive at Twee Rivieren on the 24th October :dance: :dance: We are so looking forward to getting the red sand between our toes.
Yellow ribbons will be flying so hope to see you mites who are going to be there.Have seen more names in this posting but don't know where you're staying so please put your names in the meets and greets and if you are in the same camp as us you can come over and have a cold one.

Here's to many great sightings of predators,birds,game and mites.

Take care wherever you are.

Hi Forestgump,

There are not a lot of MP's going to Kgalagadi and Northern Cape that time of the year and we should not find it difficult to spot you. Where will the Xmas tree and lights be? :lol: :lol: :lol: If you already switch them on I won't miss you. :thumbs_up:

When will you arrive at KTP again? Our day on the road will be 15 & 16 Dec.

Forestgump,

My problem is just the opposite - I still need to decide on when we going to leave KTP. My last booking is for the 14 Dec, but if the red sand is holding on too much on the 15 Dec I might stay until 18:00 and camp outside, driving back on 16 Dec. Lets see closer to the time and we might see each other at TR as in 2011. :wink:

4 days till we leave for South Africa :dance:
5 days till we will be in Marakele :dance: :dance:
11 days till we will be in KTP :dance: :dance: :dance:

Why is it that you have a whole year to think about which camera equipment to take on the trip - but 4 days before you leave you start considering again.......... :D

Can't wait to get that red sand between my toes :tongue:

Since I'm logged in, may as well say it, 87 sleeps until I lay down my head in KTP :)
