I suppose the worst of my sins :evil: is voyeurism (if you ignore the sloppy spelling in my last post!). I lurk around the forums not posting very much.
Still I'll be doing the Metsi-Metsi trail later this year - maybe I'll be brave enough to try my hand at a trip report 8)

Well I will be dead scared to hang my head out of the window trying to take the perfect pic with my yellow ribbon on display after all I've read on the forum about other dumb people doing things like that!

OK, you guys had enough 'playtime' now :twisted: :tongue: Let's get back to the topic :lol:

WHY am I on THIS forum?

Let's think.... :hmz:

I guess because as all have said, the common passion we share, might it be the wildlife, nature, the Kruger National Park, whatever. There is a unifying factor here.

Secondly, because as Imberbe says, this is the closest I can get to the bush, while im not there! The forum enables me to see, hear and experience Kruger/the bush in a flawed form 8)

As already pointed out, I bore people to death about my Kruger stories. I'll take over conversations, streer in a 'Kruger' discussion and in this way make another person's night horrific :twisted: I just have too much positive energy when talking about my favorite place, and I think soem friends are glad I meet my match here from time to time :wink:

The information is so HUGE, and quite detailed, exactly what I am looking for! Then again, I learn from other people's discussions, experiences etc. There is soo much to talk about.

Here, I give and recieve. I LOVE to give advice on initiaries, discuss possibilities, and compare facts. There is IMHO no bigger KRUGER fan then myself, it's close to desparation..... :hmz: :whistle: Then, I also get the benefits, like valuable info, my video trip with Mgoddard, and the planned 'Piano Saga'. Lovely place this forum...

Because I meet other passionate people, who have other ideas, facts, info and experiences. Becuase I have made numerous new 'friends' and it broadened my horizons. Unfortunately, I have seen people like WTM, W@H, GWEN, etc leave which is SAD :cry: However, I'm just to passionate to be struck down by the sometimes negative trends :D

There is almost NO day where I don't log on, except if I really can't! I have 8 favorites under my favorite list in internet explorer. When I wake up, I open my laptop, press the Internet button, and start reading. So to, I get 30 emails from SANParks form a day, all BEGGING for a reply :twisted: :lol: :dance:

I LOVE the (hidden) humour of some formites, and our jokey mods (like Mr. Hardekool) However, the mods are the fundament of this whole forum. Without it, it will collpase within a week. I was on the 'weg' forum. However, I got tuned so badly after discussing simple 'some are better roads then other' in Pilanesberg that I decided to NEVER return.

Viva to all members, VIVA to our Mods, and VIVA to the best forum on the internet

Hope to 'serve' you long :D

Well said GS :clap:

This is the place I get my daily 'fix' ....... where else can you get support, information, and interaction with other mindlike people who share a passion and aren't afraid to air it!!!

:clap: I salute the forum, the people who are dedicated to it and the mods who take the time to keep us all on the right side, enabling us to share a brilliant medium that keeps our passion alive!

Will I leave? No way!!

It seems that it became important to be here and play the role of a "watch-dog" nowadays by objecting to developments such as 4 or 5 star hotels inside the KNP! :? :slap:

I'm new on the forum. But already addicted. I'm a saffie and regular Kruger visitor, and the forum is a fantastic idea for people longing to be there right now. So that is why I'm here and NEVER going away
Day is life, as the roars of lions echo, and the galloping of the antelope fade.
Night is death, as the laughs of the hyena haunt you,and the bush is filled with the sounds of terrorized creatures. But between the beauty all is quiet,
As the sun appears

I was hoping to meet someone good looking and rich with a fast car and good attitude towards conservation.

So far I have only met the ones with the good attitude towards conservation :(
