Good Morning Everyone.

Am sure you cant wait Helsinki, should be great. Be sure to add your name to the list which MM shared a link off, so we know who to look out for, and don't forget to fly your yellow ribbon, for us to recognize you.

Am sure I will be Mischief, Really looking forward to it, I seriously cant wait to start my drive towards the Park, although everyday I am drafting different plans on the route etc :think: :think: :think:

That's awesome Rited, I got my fingers crossed that time will fly by for you and you can be in the Kruger :D , although I hope time goes very very slow over my few days in the Park :twisted:
