I am very impressed how quickly Forumites generally respond to messages and questions. It takes a special person who displays such interest in the needs of others. I am privileged to be part of the Forumite family!!

Good to have you on board Tollie - the addiction will hit soon!

I think that many folk who stick with the forum do so because of their love for the parks, and so want to share and help others appreciate them too. There are those who only join to find out something and then do not visit or post again - but even then, at least they have come to the right place!

Welcome to the forums Tollie, and thank you for your kind words. For my part, I've learnt so much from the forum over the years that I feel it's only right I should contribute in a small way in return. And I get so much pleasure in helping people anyway. And I think a lot of people feel the same way.

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
