Wanda goes wild!!!

Unread postby Jumbo » Thu Sep 02, 2010 9:19 am

Firstly my compliments, the following was a very nice press release 8)
Take out camping gear and head to a National Park this Spring

But reading the following snippet, made me wonder a bit … :hmz:
“To those who have never gone camping, we would like to say the time has come for you to consider the wonderful and rustic experience of feeling in one with nature. If that doesn’t convince you, maybe knowing that this is probably the most affordable holiday you’ll ever have apart from visiting relatives will convince you. Take a sho’t left to the wild, I dare you”, concluded mkutshulwa.


What you say about camping is 100%, and it almost sounds as if you know what you are talking about…but, to be brutally honest, to me you never came across as being the camping type?? (not a sin, I have many friends who hate camping :wink: ). So…I was wondering if Wanda has actually done the camping thing in a normal camp in a place like Kruger?? :? If not…here is a dare :twisted: ….Wanda goes and camp (tent) in either Balule or Tsendze (no electricity :twisted: ) for two nights….come back with photographic proof and a trip report of the camping experience….I will pledge to donate R500 to the VHR Anti-poaching fund (sure more people will do the same :wink: ).
If you do not have camping equipment, I’m sure there are more than enough people who will lend you some 8) ….I’ve got a nice big tent …just not sure about its condition…haven’t opened it since we left Moz and there we had a bit of a mouse problem …put sure the few holes can be filled with something like balls of toilet paper. :twisted:

Volunteering my services as photographer and impartial witness if wanda does it mid december. We'll be in Kruger then, in Olifants (near Balule)... So wanda: 15 & 16 december?

Moneywise I would put my money where my mouth is, but I need to talk to my accountant first. (Guinea Pig.) ;)

Mid-December is a bit too much, I think Duques. :lol:

How about the Cricket weekend next year?

Well, I think Wanda could be a true camper...but didn't she said at some stage that she is afraid of spiders and goggas? :hmz: :doh: :lol:

I will be in this for R200 as well! :thumbs_up:

I bet that too, DB. If the day breaks, she'll fix it. :twisted:
Another R200.00 from me and an additional R100.00 if she manages to fit some birding into her busy camping schedule. (Unshopped photographic evidence required, Bert. :twisted: )
