Looking very smart, Mischief!

Unfortunately, the 4x4 mirror socks are not large enough for my bakkie' s huge mirrors, so I just tie a yellow ribbon on the mirror!

Well, Inyanga 1, Inyanga30 and I have just spent 13 nights in the Kruger and didn't see one yellow ribbon :( . We were flying ours very proudly.

Will we see any in Marakele :hmz:

I always have my ribbons on, and have only seen other yellow ribbons once in Kruger before!

I always have mine on both mirrors and this year pretty big ones too but also only saw one other. When you do meet a fellow mite it is really special!

I am shocked at the number of you regular visitors who have seen so few yellow ribbons in Kruger. We have been incredibly lucky over the years and met so many people because they were flying YRs. Truly I have lost count at the number of friendships made due to spotting ribbons...or even if we had ours on display and others had forgotten them. Several (now very good )friends were met when we shared a ribbon with them on first spotting each other in the Park. Lest we should miss anyone, we now have mirror socks on each side and a YR flying from the car aerial...well, we'd hate to miss seeing someone!! When we pack, the ribbons and socks are always at the top of the pile so that we can attach them as soon as we enter the Gate

And on that thought...we only have 2 months to wait for our next visit..not that we are counting or anything!!

I think I miss lots of YRs :redface: because I stare/am fascinated at what is left and right of me :D when exploring, but really enjoyed and treasure the meets/YRs I had when settled and back in camps or at picnic spots.
