Thanksgiving for Table Mountain

Unread postby inyanga 1 » Thu Nov 26, 2015 9:45 pm

Hi,
I asked Hilda whether this might be an interesting question; she suggested that I posted it here:-

If Table Mountain wasn't where it is, where would you like it to be (for a short time) ?

.... 1 somewhere else in Africa
.... 2 somewhere else in SA
.... 3 somewhere in an other Continent
.... 4 some where off-world
.... 5 where it is now?

If not 5 then where?

Please either post your ideas, or preferably PM me, and I will summarise or better still use them after Kaapsedraai leaves Table Mountain for his well earned holiday in December...

You might ask what's the ***** is this all about.


Well, about this time last year, Kaapsedraai went to the Kruger, letting a few know that he was going to be 'off Forum' and so couldn't update his TM topic ( a very much liked one :clap: :clap: ).

Isinkwe was one of those and so said that, whilst Kaapsedraai was away, perhaps the Gauteng Mine Dumps could be swopped for TM, as he wouldn't notice. :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

:redface: :redface: I helped :naughty:

so if you missed that sequence of Insinkwe and Inyanga1

versus the Cape Town 'mites read from here :-

Recent TM posts have noticed the opportunity of Kaapsedraai's forthcoming holiday and potential relocation of TM by I&I; read these:-
http://www.sanparks.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=80678&start=1579

Now I and I are looking for feedback as to where TM might VIRTUALLY go over the festive season.

Hence the questions above.

If you have a really brill idea a PM is best :whistle: :whistle:

enjoy
