When you come to think of it -- where else will you find total strangers going out of their way to meet each other and then becoming friends ?

Who will drop what they're doing to help each other out ?

So ... we're on our way to KTP. Try to look up Lion Queen's cell no -- not on my phone :( Then remember I've downgraded to my original phone which doesn't even do mms's so forget about the internet :whistle:

Sms to Matthys to ask her to please send a pm to Lion Queen to explain my rudeness.

Sitting outside Pick 'n Pay in Upington when my phone rings. It's Lion Queen making sure I now have her number. SO tries to start the car -- battery dead :( We're still chatting so tell her we're not leaving just yet -- so Lion Queen says -- hang on, we'll be there in 10 minutes :shock:

So a big THANK YOU to Matthys for sending a pm so quickly :k and another BIG THANK YOU to Lion Queen & SO for getting us on the road again :gflower: :thumbs_up: We really enjoyed the mini-meet and were sorry we couldn't visit a bit longer ..... next time :lol:

Fast forward 2 weeks to a flat tyre which was changed at Kamqua picnic spot -- by a very helpful !Xaus Lodge guide :thumbs_up: Checked in at MataMata and spoke to George, the manager. We called Jannie (Kgalagadi Guru) and, once again, they couldn't be more helpful :thumbs_up: They bought a new tyre for us and had it delivered from Upington to Twee Rivieren where the technical services guys fitted it on a Sat afternoon. To say we were blown away by the service would be an understatement :clap: :clap: :clap:

The Kgalagadi staff are all fanatstic :gflower:

And the forumites we've met personally, and on-line, are as well.

So give yourselves all a huge pat on the back -- you all deserve it :thumbs_up:

Dotty -- please can you put a link to this topic on the Arid Park forum ? Thx

And you are one of them. When I had an emergency with my specs while in KNP last Jan the advice you gave was invaluable! :gflower:

And while I'm on the subject, a big thank you to Hugh for getting me the name of an optician in Komatipoort. :gflower:
