Sharing your excitement and also counting down! :dance:


Another mite we are going to meet :dance: No excuses, you saw what our truck looks like, and as I said earlier, it is very hard to miss on the road, so when on the road, stop us and we can make a plan to visit.


That truck of yours won't be easy to miss! See you in about a month's time!

NINE days to go for me!

Enjoy your time in Satara Petra.
Look forward to reading your quick trips into the park.

Sadly, our next visit will only be in March for the cricket, when we will meet again and get to meet your driver. 8)
