Hi Everyone

Time is coming closer, and I just changed my travel plans slightly, so my first 2 nights remain the same, which is Satara and Berg en Dal, and for the final night I'll be in Lower Sabie :D :D :D :dance: :dance: :dance:

Looking forward to it.

26 days to go :D :D :D :dance: :dance: :dance:

Sparrow...18 days will fly past.Then you will be in the KNP.If I remember correctly you started countdown at about 100 days.

Hope you all fly Yellow Ribbons or some yellow adornment .....my hubby and I are planning day trips over Dec/Early Jan...no set dates,but would be great if we get to meet some fellow Forumites :clap: :dance:

Its December at last and I can see Kruger 'at the end of the tunnel' :D :D

16th December we fly from CT to JHB
17th we drive to Hazeyview and spend 5 days with the kids and grandkids before going in at Phabeni on the 22nd for 16 nights in Kruger.

Rusks are drying out in the oven as we speak and picnic bag and bird books with our yellow ribbon all ready waiting on the spare bed. :dance: :dance: :dance:
Final pack 15th Dec.

We have waited over 300 odd days, so thank goodness iit is nearly here.

Hope to see some wonderful Forum friends whilst we are there.

Perhaps if the "help" around here would have a bit less wine , definitely much less talking on the job , :naughty: morecat might be able to get some yellow bits and bobs done in time for Krugerparking :D It really is a battle to get decent "staff" these days. :roll:

Image

Does morecat not realise that there are only 21 sleeps left before Krugerparking :slap: She still has to go and get my beer , braai meat , wood and charcoal and anything else she will need to keep us fed while Krugerparking.
Image

Lets hope for a bit more progress while I play Image tomorrow Image

PS - if I am not in Shingwedzi for Christmas with Tessa G and Nkulu , there is quite a good possibility that morecat has read this post.

Isn't it just amazing how potatoes give us fries and vodka? :D The rest of the vegetables should get their act together :rtm:

So when is old enough to know better supposed to kick in ? :hmz:

Good Morning Everyone :gflower: :k

I see everyone is getting into the festive season mood, and a lot of trips coming up

Isinkwe I am only engaged and I know you are swimming in deep and dangerous waters :tongue:

Sparrow 2 weeks sounds closer than 14 days according to me :wink:

Less than 3 weeks to go for me :) 19 Days to be exact :dance: :dance: :dance:

Speaking of which I need to start putting my Kruger Gear together so that nothing gets left behind.
