We made lots of new friends via our YRs this last trip - such a special link.

We also always carry a spare YR and I am very proud to say that the recipient this time was Max Bullough (MY Year in Kruger) - what a special trip that ribbon will have!

Carolv - word got around about how proudly you wore your YRs :clap: We were in the park the same time as you, but in different areas, so am so sorry we 'missed' each other. Max and ilovemeerkats mentioned they'd met you :dance:

I always put my yellow ribbon on the wing mirror, but see very few others doing likewise. This last time, I met a Forumite (didn't get name) from UK who had forgotten the ribbon. He saw my ribbon, and we had a good chat.

Near Crocodile Bridge I saw a vehicle with lots of yellow on it and I slowed down, looked hard at them and expected them to do likewise and stop. They carried on and I then realised, to my embarassment, that the yellow on their vehicle was company colours/advertising!!

I am also looking forward to the mirror socks - maybe more people will use them.

Isinkwe, Do you have any idea where those mirror socks can be bought here in Cape Town. I wont be able to get my name put on in time, but would love to get a couple for our forthcoming trip.
