Lourens has been on leave for a few days. He returned yesterday and will depart on a backpack trail today.

He is well and hopefully update us on his activities in the near future.

:think: Hi Forumites!!!

I am still alive, but only. My life is currently non-existing, but just keeping my head above the water. Sorry that I didn't post anything in months, but my studies with the work is keeping me very busy.

Hope you are all still doing well???? :|

Lourens , I am sure many more members besides myself miss your informative posts & photos .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
