wacktazz, you will put the dentists out of business with that remedy - I know some people who have toothache every Friday and Sat nights............. :D
Undertand your frustration with the speedsters - it is a topic that has no end in sight, unfortunately :evil:
Please keep us entertained, at least until you leave the park, and then maybe you can start the thread 'what it's like NOT living in Kruger" :(
Live each day as if it's your last... and one day you'll be right!

AHHHHHH, please say something. My SO is grinding me already because of the IDIOT of the month reply. Apparently I was too outspoken. Anyway, came back from Hazyview this afternoon, and saw hippos outside the dam at Phabeni, a white rhino, rumours about a leopard at the watergat turnoff, and then a genuine sighting of 2 youngsters hunting with their mother. They are probably 1 and a halve years old. Beautiful specimens.

And in the morning while most of you are still sleeping, I am off to work again.

I had my tooth taken care of this past Friday.
It was quite strange to feel and hear how it sounds like to pull out a teeth. I will spare you the detail, but it was quite an eye, or shall I say a mouth opener....

before i start, i need to apologise as i know this is a very sensitive subject, but which of the forumites got wacktazz's terrible job of baking buff pasties in that terrible Kruger? if it is not taken - i would LOVE to - but if we're all still in the queue for the interview i would stand in line........

WT. I have just caught up with this story. I feel for you having to leave Kruger. I certainly hope you will keep in touch and let us know when you give up that retail job you are going to and come back to that awful place you have been living in for 7 years. SO will soon get tired of shopping, especially since I believe she grew up in Kruger. So I predict you and SO will be back one day. I certainly hope so - as I so enjoy your humour.In the meantime I wish you a happy life. If all else fails and you cannot come back to KNP you could always open a buff pastie shop near one of the gates so we can all buy frozen pies on our way in or out. God bless you and your family. Regards Delene.

Hi Delene
I still stay in Kruger. My wife and I bought a restaurant just outside Hazyview. She still works in the park, so therefore we have "free" accomodation.
Naturally I see the wife and kids only for a brief moment everyday at this point, but it will change

Hi WT. So glad you are set up with a restaurant. You still making Buff pies?? When we are next in KNP (in about 2 years hopefully) we will come and see you in your restaurant and catch up. Good luck with your business. Hope it all goes well.
So you are still enduring the horrible life in Kruger, travelling those terrible long roads to work and back, with all that wild life around making you stop from time to time, and those birds waking you in the early mornings. :mrgreen:
