Are you maybe offering? Unfortunately I don't know how far we will get, unless you buy a tandem? :twisted:

Maybe I am. (I do have a car. I just don't use it much for a number of reasons.) :tongue:

It would be too cool for school to ride through KNP on a tandem. Imagine just the soft hiss of skinny tyres on tar, and absolutely no engine noise. the wind in ones hair and the odd spurt of adreneline trying to out accelerate a lion so we don't end up being meals on wheels. :whistle:

Conservation is not an option.
It's imperative.

Leave KNP alone. Go build a hotel someplace else. Reserves are for the preservation of wildlife.

You see Bennievis, that is just the problem, both me and BH got some steel plates (aka bionic bits) in our bodies... can you imagine the lions spitting out the pieces of steel plates and screws and stuff :lol:

Wait, this is an open forum, so let me just arrange some other means of transport...don't think this tandem is going to work :naughty:

This is a date that have to be fixed as soon as possible, hopefully before we make a conflicting reservation again! :wall:
I have already been proposed as the "assignated babysitter" on the Balule cleanup thread and is happy to accept. :lol:
As you have been offered a lift, PetraJ (even though you are reluctant to accept) :twisted: , it seems that nobody will have an excuse!
Let us get the ball rolling!

OK - here is a challenge and a promise!

Get your ducks in a row with dates and booking, and if you are using Malelane camp as suggested I will help with arrangements behind scenes for going out and working, etc. May even be able to arrange an alien plant hack for those who are interested (and want to lose some blood and skin along the way!).

Have you read the entrance permit? Do you KNOW the Conditions of Entry?

Interesting idea EJ. I never thought about it from a point of alien vegetation cleanup, instead of just litter.
