I nearly forgot my ribbon in June but luckily the crazy store in Polokwane stocks "florist ribbon" and bought about 2 meters now I'm stocked forever as it stays in the car at all times.....

But I still didn't see any ribbons flying in Map on that trip and also don't see any mites on the list for december when we are back again. :(

Maybe I need to start campaning for Mapungubwe that we get more mites out that way (it's the only park I really visit....... :( )

I tie a yellow ribbon on both our side mirrors and I also have a ribbon tied to our trailer, so when somebody passes our accommodation and the car is not there, they can still see that a "forum" member is staying at that specific accommodation and maybe we will bump into each other at the pool/kitchen/bathroom, if I see a yellow ribbon in any of the camps that I am staying at in December, I will go in search of the people/person or I am going to leave a note on their car, just saying hello :roll: :roll:

I saw one yellow scarf on the mirror of a gold bakkie in the shady parking by the shop at Skukuza on Weds 9 October around midday, but the mites were not with the bakkie. :(


That is a shame chirinda :( . It was me and Hilda :thumbs_up: .

Maybe I`m a bit overboard but both mirrors get ribbons the caravan one a flag pole one and my cameras one each.

That sounds like us too, Sparrow. We take enough ribbon for YRs on both wing mirrors, the radio aerial and both our camera backpacks and some cameras are similarly festooned. Obviously we have to take the car ribbons off when we return the rental car but the camera ribbons stay on all the time and we use the opportunity when queried to tell people about the Kruger Park and the forum. We arrive 3 weeks today so our ribbons will soon be washed and ironed ready for packing.

As regards seeing other YRs in the Park, we have been really lucky and seem to see more and more each trip we make...so for all those out at the same time as us, please stop for a chat or meet for a drink if you are in camp with us. All our dates are logged on the Meets and Greets. Look forward to see everyone!

Val, I'll get you some yellow ribbon. We have a very nice fabric shop nearby and they stock a good range of ribbons.

Quite funny what some visitors to Kruger think of 'mites driving with yellow ribbons in the Park. Somebody on our last trip stopped and asked me if we protest against something :hmz: , however he was quite impressed when I explained what the ribbon actually stands for :thumbs_up: .
