When your newest KNP map is weather beaten and worn long before you use it in Kruger.

You have the luxury of choosing amongst thousands of camping sites across South Africa and yet.... you are still willing to spend your summer holiday in the HOT Kruger sun,

when you spend your Christmas and New Year's Eve in camps where people go to sleep at 20:00 and it doesn't even remotely bother you,

When you are willing to get up at 03:30 in the morning so that you can exit camp at 04:30 just to smell the bush and embrace the sunrise,

When you get up earlier than usual for work and suddenly feels this longing for the Kruger Mornings!

When you start your Diesel in the morning and every time you smell the Diesel you think of Kruger!!

... you drive behind a car and the licence plate reads WTM *** and you wish you were at the office already to quickly go to the webcams and forum, before you start working; and immediately change the conversation in the car back to Kruger/Forum topics :dance:

When you would swap a hundred of the sunday braai's you have at home for one, just one.... overlooking the Letaba River :pray:

And when you stare fixedly out of the drivers side window so that your kids can't see you tearing up over the last few kilometers to the Phalaborwa gate :cry:

When you stop to look at a Plover/Lapwing walking in the road and your 5 year old daughter says "This is like been in the Park".

Will be there in 9 more sleeps...

Last time I went away I was telling my neighbour I'd be away and she asked where I was going. "Kruger" I said, and she replied "Stupid question". :D

When ....... a corner in your dining room is occupied on a permanent basis with boxes of goodies for our "Kruger trip".......when the only topic you and your family speak about on a Sat and Sun is our "Kruger trip"...........when you carry around a plastic folder in your work bag with a list of routes and meals that you have planned for your upcoming "Kruger trip" .........when your local Pick n Pay has a 75% sale on summer clothes in July (winter) and you buy T-shirts and shorts for every family member and then put them aside only to be worn on our "Kruger trip"........when you have pictures of places in the Kruger on your desk and look at them everyday as if it is the first time that you have seen them..... :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
.........when you visit the nursery in Skukuza and buy all different kinds of plants for your garden just because you want the Kruger park a bit closer to you....when you cook certain dishes for dinner and SO or LO say "this reminds me of the time we camped in Letaba/Balule/Satara/Tamboti............
