LOL! There is an easy website: which you can use for countdowns, calculating time between two dates and more.
If you are on Facebook you have more options. It's there as well, and remembers your last countdowns. So you don't need to fill in the dates/times again.
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.

Feel free to use any of these additional letters to correct the spelling of words found in the above post: a-e-t-n-d-i-o-s-m-l-u-y-h-c

I have known for over a year that I will be visiting the Kruger Park , however that visit is still over two years away . That's a countdown of well over 3 years . That's a long time but finances dictate it is so , and it will be a seven week holiday in South Africa with a fantastic five weeks in the Park . Really looking forward to it - understatement of the year .

318 Days! Not going to be an easy wait, however.
A few days ago, a television celebrity was talking about her recent trip to Kruger (Private camp, I am sure) and she said she got tired of seeing elephants. Our youngest, who is absolutely obsessed with ellies said, "Dad, how could anyone get tired of ellies??!! That's just wrong!!"

My goodness me RemiE, how wonderful to see you again :D

Have really missed you on the forums and wondered if that concrete jungle had swallowed you up.

106 days to go :dance: :dance: and you will be amazed at how quickly it will fly by. When I finished my TR we had 300 and something to go and here it is just around the corner. I still have the map with your sightings marked that you kindly sent to me so sure that will come in very useful in the south :dance:

Tessa G :gflower: it was quite some time, and the concrete jungle got the better of me this year round, been all over the show and too busy to sit still. So much so that we didn’t come round planning a December visit to the park, I'm yet to finish my TR........... :redface: But better late than never 8) . The advantage is that our countdown started at 106, the suspense of 300 days would not fit well with me :wink: . But you and SO are almost on your way, after 300 days so there is hope for us and our 105 Days :dance: . (Keeping my fingers crossed that secret map of the South live up to its reputation :whistle: )

KrynaM, our Kruger vacation will come to an end 13 March, but we will spread the word to the residents so they can come out in full display for your visit

Hi DB , what a pleasant surprize :mrgreen: ! What are the exact dates of the Cricket? I can still make some changes to include the Cricket@Skekuza :mrgreen:
It definitely be a first for me............meeting fellow mites at a Cricket match :dance:

:dance: :dance: RemiE!

Have a look here - it is difficult to give exact dates at the moment as it all depends on how many teams wish to come along and play. But it does look very much like the Event will start on Thursday morning and run to Saturday night. There will be a braai on the Friday night, and then the Gala/Prize Giving dinner on the Saturday night.

SANParks are confirming some matters on their side and then official invites will be posted. This being the 10th event, they want to make it special for all.

If you change accommodation, you might need to do the Skukuza part via Crested Val ... she will be able to assist you.

This topic should be banned, makes me and I am sure quite a few others feel rather Image and Image

I must still suffer like this for another 89 days
I hate it when the voices in my head go silent.......I never know what they are planning. :roll:

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