Anyone coming in Malelane gate over the long weekend will have driven past my car with its yellow and red ribbons sitting at the gate waiting patiently for me to get back in and drive home again!

I checked Jazil's visit list , and judging by that , it seems fairly remote that one would see yr's in the Park .

We did met at the gate the long weekend , like you said with the gp bunch. Did not have my yr on at that stage but it was on when we went pass the gate.

Keep them Flying Mites.

I read elsewhere on the forum that as the YR carrier approached a sighting with people hanging out their vehicles the perpetrators sheepishly withdrew back into their cars -
If there were more YR visible will that assist in keeping perpetrators on their toes (for a while) ?

We were in the KNP fom 18 to 23 April and saw several yellow ribbons. At a lion sighting near Croc Bridge a lady in another car asked me about the yellow ribons as they had seen a number of cars with yellow ribbons and wondered if they were missing out on something. I told her she was indeed missing out and explained about the forum. We also saw a car with several yellow ribbons attached to the door handles at Tshokwane.
I have also noticed that a few OSVs and others have changed their rule breaking behavior after seeing our yellow ribbon. Actually happened while we were there last week. A OSV rapidly reversed back onto the tar when the giude noticed our yellow ribbon.

I'm so glad that ppl are afraid of our YR and respecting it. That is way i thought that we must make more ppl aware of it and show our YR. We as mites must try to make as many ppl aware of it and what they are missing out on.

I have asked this question previously :shock: Can I buy my YR at any place of my choice, the only requirement that it be yellow? :roll:

I find the florist type ribbon makes a bit of noise when the car is moving so I bought some of the brightest yellow material and made one myself.
