A good helloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo to all my forumites that have kept this thread alive..... uhm no I haven't used the money to buy a new broom, still stuck with my squeekems... But she has seen better days. I needed a lot of time to rest from my 4 week Kruger holiday :twisted: and with no comp and BB it was tough to get on the forum but I'm here now to start posting kiekies which I still have to figure out as I'm doing it with photobucket this time and I have only done it with flickr previously... SO HOLD THUMBS

Ok so I will start by posting kiekies of all the wonderful people/forumites that I have met in the 12 days with Wendy. Them forumites are really a special bunch and definitely people that I can call family. :w:

This is Flying Cheetah and I he was my first forumite, we met each other on my first morning in the park near Phabeni Gate and had a lekker chat about Kruger and his stay which I believe was coming to and end after he has been in the park already 2 weeks. Lucky man!!!!!

This was a special surprise one morning at Crocodile bridge as I was waiting for WendyA and Leech in my car. This very friendly gentleman (yes I can call him that) walked up to me asking about all the yellow I was parading on my car. Never in my wildest dreams did I thought that I would meet him.
Ok from left to right these are...
Ellie, Aat, Leechy and WendyA

Now this kiekies are only posted to draw you peeps in, keep tuned for more kiekies later today as for now I have to start doing some catching up on the TR's :whistle:

G'day my good Satara friend!
It was such a treat having a late night Amarula with you, Victor and Anne :D
We must organise that we at least stay more than one day at a camp so that our kuier can last more than a few hours, one day is surely not enough to have so much fun and laughs as we did :thumbs_up:
I started a teaching job which is so not moonlight and roses (well directly translated from Afrikaans) I have so much to learn still and they keep me busy. As well as that I'm a bit computer-less but making a plan as we are typing to eachother :wink: It will only be going downhill from now :D

Ok so more mites which I had the privilege to meet in our fundraiser trip
This is the honeymoon couple and they where also team B for the Browniebunch. Well actually to tell the truth, we were the browniebabes/boobs/blondes or whatever you want to call us, but bunch there weren't. We were a yellow bunch for one day which was a lot of fun :tongue:
Porrdige and Jaxidean

Now this kiekies was on our second greet and meet at Satara, which seems like the meet and greet capital :hmz: EKoppen and his SO was there as well but I didn't get the chance to take a kiekie of them :slap:
Here is CHeetah2111 (the legend), WendyA, Tedredrum (Daron), Heksie and Teds bro
Image

Me and WendyA had the privilege to meet a supersecret mite as well... I have never seen a kiekie of her on the forum :twisted: We were on our way to Crooks the one morning from Shing and at a dagga sighting they ran into us.
TA---------------------DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
PNF behind the wheel and SO (just the way it should be in the Kruger) :tongue:
Image

enough for now... the last mites I will post tomorrow :thumbs_up: Have a great day everyone :k

And Dinks would you be so kind to inform us where to make the payments for the fundraiser...
