Yellow ribbons? Where do I find them? I believe that they are rarely seen in the park. :whistle:

We were in Kruger for 13 days in May, went from CB to olifants in that time, and did not see any YR in that time :hmz:


When we were in the PArk Nov/Dec 2012 I saw about 20 mites in the Park, we om'd eachother to organise meets at certain camps :thumbs_up:
-Aat and Ellie
-Porridge and JAxidean
-DellaC, SO and Annie Owl
-Big5spotter
-Flying Cheetah
-Imberbe and SO
-Leachy
-JaniceE and Eastr
-PNF
-WildImage and CarolV
-Crested Val and Dungie
-Baber

October 2012
-Sparrow
-GerhardDB
-Leachy
-Cheetah2111

In March 2012 we saw Mads. Bushbaby, Bushbaby30 and SHi also we got to see EJ :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

In March 2013 we saw ForrestGump and Bushcraft

Now in July we saw LQ, Picnic and LO also Bushcraft and family and not to forget Vinkie and Apex Predator

All depends if you stay in camps they are staying in... Or if you organise trips so you guys can have a drink at a picninc spot etc. But seldomnly I drive just past a YR as the PArk is BIG and we are spread everywhere :thumbs_up:

That's why it is so important to add your name to the "Where will I see YRs" thread.
Kruger has it's own, and there is one for non KNP visits!!

We have not seen many YRs on the open road, but have met loads in the camps, or arranged to meet at picnic sites etc...............get your name down!!!! :whistle: :whistle:

Okie, you are definitely right...........we see few actual yellow ribbons on the open roads up north, but I check the YR page, and if I can make a plan to meet up with other forumites, we do. :thumbs_up:

Last year we met, EJ, Chirinda, Normana and Torticat, WendyA & Heksie, CarolV and SO, Bushmom and her 2 babies, Mads, Vlakvarkvrou, Petra and SO, Flying Cheetah, Davenjan, Cheetah2111, Micetta and SO, Elsa and Klystron, Porridge and JaxiDean, and Darren and Garren. We were due to meet Meandering Mouse, but I was poorly and had to cancel!!! :redface:

Sadly we will probably always miss you, as we are there each year from the end of November to the beginning of May. :wall: :wall:

Will be interested to hear who you meet up with this year!! :thumbs_up:

Last time in KNP we spotted a fair few YR's. BarryEls & Hilda , who had been following a Cheetah down a road for a long time. We both stopped next to each other and only after a while did we notice each others YR's

Sometimes, even though we try and make it spotable, I found that our YR wasn't easy to see. We had one atop the car aerial and the driver side side mirror.

I recon I'm going to unwind an entire 5m cord of yellow Ribbon on the Driver wing mirror for December.

Or like me Riaanf31 ... You could always wear one in your hair :thumbs_up:

THis was yet another succesful mite trip for me, we stayed 3 nights at Lower Sabie and found out earlier that two mites would be in the surrounding areas... So contacted them and had a braai every night with Leachy and then Sunday afternoon had a lekker braai at Skuks with Bushcraft...
but a surprise was our second morning whilst drinking MMC in camp and I saw this one girl in the communal kitchen and she looked very familiar... so I took an empty coffee mug to the kitchen to do some investigation... and guess what? It is Bushbaby30. We had a morning chat until mum came to fetch me as it was already past gate opening times and we are never late for the Gate :lol:

I say guys do look in this link http://www.sanparks.org/forums/viewtopic.php?style=2&f=69&t=33456 and then maybe send a pm to some of the mites you want to meet...

We flew yellow ribbons throughout Mokala and KNP. Only saw 4. Met Dellac & SO, annieowl, skip, & Barry & Hilda with his huge scarf. Heritagearts introduced herself & acquired a yellow ribbon from us. It was such great fun meeting all those wonderful people and others who asked what they are for.

Our YR will be in place come December. Do we have an option to acquire a Forum Yellow windows sock? There was talk of this being developed at one stage.

The count down continues


What's a Forum Yellow windows sock, Riaanf31? :hmz:

With NetEk on this one .. Is nice to hear the sound of your yellow ribbon fluttering in the
wind :thumbs_up: .. Mind you sometimes we don't seem to go fast enough to get ours
moving :wink: .. I was flying my posh yellow bow & ribbon but think I may copy Barryels

NetEk, I googlelated the net and couldn't find a pattern, so had to ask around and got one mirror sock from a friend. (It was a huge seller I think in 2010) and then bought material and used the other mirror sock as a guide. Sorry I can't help you more but I do believ that there are other sewing experts that might help with this one. :w:

pops - I was in KNP from 7th - 15th October (Punda Maria, Letaba and Satara) and only saw one other yellow ribbon - Hilda and barryels. At Punda Maria, rodgerh came up to me and introduced himself - he saw my yellow ribbon.

Either people are not Forumites or, if they are, they either do not know about the yellow ribbon or choose not to display it.

Over the years, I have met several Forumites and enjoyed putting faces to names.
