I can't wait. Leave for SA on the 9th. Spend few days with family in Jo'burg first. Then we are off to the best place. Can't even count the number of times we've been to KNP over the last 30 years but get just as excited as the bush calls us back. :D

A measly 4 sleeps separates me from my migration South. :dance: :dance: :dance:
The only thing that fills me with trepidation is :think: that trip report.
Hopefully I'll see and :cam: sufficient to put one together. Last time it was ruined as almost all my pics were out of focus. (Darned new lens :x )
But, having calibrated it over and over again, tested it almost to destruction :wink: , it seems to behave now (and that is after the lot accidently fell of my tripod :cry: ).

All I've got to do is blink a few times and it'll be Sunday! Yea!!
And I'll make sure I don't end up in the soft sand. Have to remind myself of the :rtm: and apply some common sense!

Wishing all you counters a happy count. Just remember: when I'm back, you're still going! I'll be so :mrgreen:

A very happy Mike

Can't believe it's only 15 sleeps until we board the flight from Heathrow and then arrive in the GLORIOUS KNP on the 16th September :dance: :dance: .
It seems to have been a very long time arriving, but now the excitement is building, only 10 more days driving my truck and then the best drive of all
from Jo/burg to Berg en Dal.

Our yellow ribbons will be flying and we hope to meet many more whilst there.

Take care wherever you are.
