Ok OK, thanks for the replies!

BUT, please hold your horses! I cannot at THIS stage already tell if its going to be a boys thing, or if I will be able to make it one.

First of all, I have started the base with: Myself, my sister and Ndloti. So thats problem one. I just 'tested' my sisters thoughts on this, I just told her that Im gonna make this a boysthing.....which resulted in a shout and an 'bang'..... She's quite adventurous you know :wink:

Secondly, I have started this on a 'first-come first serve' basis...so if a female formite told me 'gimme some time', and I said 'yes'..... I've got a problem :lol:

So let, at this stage not decide on that yet...I want to keep all options open, and coordinate all the info and requests (sounds like a government speech :shock: )

*W™ looking up at the sky and sing

As jy moeg word vir die lewe in die stad
Kies die Olifants pad
In die veld pluk jy 'n wandel lat
en slaan die ou voor jou op sy gat!
en sing jou wandel lied
en sing jou wandel lied!*

(Can't be translated - Old Afrikaans folk song.)

The comments I made yesterday about it being an all guy thing was not supposed to create mayhem or ill feeling so for any uncomfortable moments I may have caused, I will eat a big slice of humble pie and apologise profusely. :redface: (I just got completely carried away. (Note to self, before engaging mouth (keyboard), make sure brain is engaged.)

WTM. If you are along for the ride (walk), we will all need to be lifted out at the halfway point and I can just see this excursion as being a complete hoot. I for one would love to have you along for your experience. I'm not sure how I will cope with the raucus laughter that will no doubt follow in your wake. :lol:

WTM.

The smell of your decaying body being dragged along with us does not fill me with a great desire to take you any other way than alive, preferably sharing your humor with us, rather than just being a "deadweight", but I,m sure we can arrange the latter if so pressed.

I just went to Sportsmans to prcie my new pair of hiking boots. (Dam, I forgot to have a look at the prices of backpacks. Oh well, work for my next some-break).

Among other things.

I was trying to get SO into the spirit of my enthusiasm and suggested that she fly down (just after the trip) and I fetch her at the airport to do the northern bit again, but she just wasn't buying. (Kept biting my head off, so she's either not enthused with the idea or just plain and simple PMS.)

She'll get over it though.

Now, back to Olifants walk 2009. Is it possible to arrange more than one or perhaps get a special concession since we are forumites and maybe get a slightly bigger group? (just ideas).

I think the walk thing is going to go down either way. If for some reason, you are not able to get it all planned, I will be doing one and I think next year is a good a year as any.
