Only 18 sleeps for us. :dance:

BUT.... I'm really sick you guys. :( I'm having trouble concentrating, checking webcams several times a day, taking my kruger map book with me in the car when fetching my son at school (just for in case I have to wait a few minutes at school or in traffic :roll: ), checked my confirmation letter several times the past few days to see if I didn't miss something, waking up at night, and can't fall asleep again unless I figured out what roads we should drive and where to have brunch ect .... I have all kinds of weird symptoms. :tongue: It must be Kruger fever. Any cure or am I in trouble and should I pay the doctor a visit?

July 31st ...Pretoriuskop
August 1st - 4th Lower Sabie
August 5th Sable hide. :big_eyes:

I'm not a doctor Roaneric, but I can assure you that it will get worse for the next 16 days and then miraculously it will be replaced by an eagerness to leave your house, a feeling of relief, followed by a sense of accomplishment and after several hours of helping the plane to fly faster, a desire to shout 'YES'. Followed by a traditional :dance: or several and the urge to :cam: everything in sight.

Ik hoop dat je veel plezier zult hebben en al je beestjes kunt zien en fotograferen.
Have a marvellous time.

PS I'm not far behind you, only 50 days till take-off. Found my yellow ribbon and put it in the bag (nearly packed!)

Enjoy
Mike

Hi Mike

Hahahaha Thanks, Now I'm feeling much better .... NOT. :lol:

I'm already packed. Flying to south africa in a week and my Yellow ribbon was the first thing that was securely packed between the cameras.

Enjoy your countdown as well :dance:

With a smile on my face stretching from ear to ear, I am over the moon to let you know that we have just booked our flights and accommodation so just 103 days to go till we will be driving back into KNP. The time will fly by....or so so I keep telling myself. Just about to send all our details to Jazil for entry on the Meets and Greets.

4 Sleeps... :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Good luck Roaneric, it is a terrible sickness this Kruger Fever. Luckily for you, I understand you are booked for Kruger, soon - so your cure is on the way. Just be warned, after using the cure, the fever will start again... And you will keep needing to come back for more of it! It is a chronically recurring condition... :roll: :lol:
