LOL! There is an easy website: http://www.timeanddate.com/ 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

Unplanned & unexpected 5 nights to Kruger from Ireland starting 24th of June! Staying where I wouldn't usually stay (Berg & Dal x1 & Skukuza x4) but at least it's in Kruger! :dance:
Just the medicine Dr. Kruger prescribed!

Next trip December 2017 18th Biyamiti(x3) Satara (x7) Lower Sabie (x2)

Hopefully see some of you there!!

Fly your yellow ribbon moniquedph! Have a look HERE!

You can also PM Jazil with your dates and camps to put on this list and find out who will be in the same camps as you at the same time: When will I see Yellow Ribbons in Kruger.

Its official - just bought one way miles tickets for my daughter and I for next July - Cool Girls 2016 will ride again! Lia (8), two of her aunts, one uncle, one 8 year-old cousin, one grandma this time. We're letting our token guy in only because he's related :) .Our 3 week itinerary is as follows (2 days in each for most part) - Skukuza, Talamati, Shimuwini, Shingwedzi, Pafuri, Mopani, Olifants, Satara, Lower Sabie, Biyamiti, Berg en Dal (well - we hope, as we haven't completed our reservations yet so fingers crossed!). Lots of driving but hard to not see the whole park when you're so far away! 10 months and 3 weeks away! Hopefully I'll build up enough air miles to purchase our return at some point!! :roll:

Sooooo super excited to be there again and to show more family how amazing Kruger is!

Well done Vernao. The yellow ribbon or any type of yellow adornment should be tied preferably to the rear view mirrors of either the driver and / or passenger doors.Preferably both :lol: :lol: :lol:
Just a nice way to identify fellow Forum members that you may come across whilst driving in the Park or when you are in the camps.Some amazing steadfast friendships with like-minded and interesting people have been formed this way :dance: :dance:

Hi Hilda,
While there, we will be celebrating the completion of a borehole installation at the forty forth school in the Acoernhoek area by the foundation and the commencement of the installation of enviro loo water less toilets in the schools as well.

It is our hope while there, to introduce the Junior Achievement program in the area as well, with the assistance of Rotary International clubs in the Fort Lauderdale, Mpumlanga and Limpopo areas.

Not bad for a couple of dedicated ladies here in Florida!

Well done and thank you ekoppen. We know very well just how much these improvements can mean to a community. We overlap with you on several days so will look out for you both.

Only 8 more sleeps for us until we head off to London Heathrow and we will be driving through Phabeni Gate 2 days after that. Time to get out those YRs and mirror socks me thinks!
