Congratulations from my side too !
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.

I cannot agree with you more - I could have written this myself. :thumbs_up:

DB, to an exceptional moderator: Congratulations on your 40 000th post. My word, that is impressive. :shock: :clap: :dance:.

For all your contributions, THANK YOU. :littleangel:

Deebs :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

well done :thumbs_up:

I'm smiling and marveling of how far you have gone. I am remembering the first G'teng mini meet where it was going to be such a big occasion to meet DB all the way from East London. I still get as excited to meet these crazy folk :wink:

This forum has become family and much thanks goes to the person who devoted her time to making 40000 posts.

and to Hawk who cooked his own supper :roll:

Quite an achievement Dalene. I would guess that at least 98% of the posts were providing help and useful advice to mites - as I experienced.
Thanks :clap:
PS what is the current record for the most postings on the forum?
