The only yellow ribbon we saw in the Kruger between 18 and 23 December 2013 was ours, we covered a large part of the south


Hi tentdweller :yaya: I was 'in' the park 22Dec till 5Jan and drove around with 2YR and a YR mirror sock. I only met 2 mites, 1 drove past me and I had take make a U-turn and chase them down-yes that is what I do :redface: but I believe because of this Kruger fundraiser topic more people actually stopped and said 'Hi, Heksie!' I still don't know who they are :hmz: bit I believe it is the time. On my 25Nov-5Dec trip I saw about 12mites :dance:

Guys put on the YRs!!!!! It will give you a big surprise one day :w: GlenD pm'd me the day I was returning from the park-he passed me on the N4 when both of us where on our way home :D and I am still waving my YR proud in Pretoors!
Just have to add that my YR sock wa stolen during my Kruger trip! :( By bloody baboons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi boertjie,

A normal yellow ribbon will be just fine........... :thumbs_up:

In fact any yellow item tied to the wing mirror will work.........we've used those yellow dust cloths in the past.... :whistle:

We'll be flying our Yellow Ribbon when at KNP March 8-14th!

Hopefully we will meet up with some others. This will be my son's first trip along with my niece & nephew's first time out of the States.

My trip to Kruger in November yielded several yellow ribbons, very nice to have a chat with those folks, and also a pre-planned meet with Crested Val and her SO. A couple of mites who were not flying yellow ribbons also made themselves known to me, which was great too.

I also met three students who knew about yellow ribbons even though they weren't forumites.

You know what was fun-ok, and a bit scary about my second 2 week trip to KNP in December?
Because of this fundraiser trip and that remarkable pic WendyA posted about my accident outside Shing.

I had people calling: 'Hello Heksie' when we had a lion sighting on the H3 and they didn't have a YR. Still don't know who they are and when I went to get my entry permit I got a 'hello Heksie' too. Was actually scary to see how many people check the topics out which aren't forumites. Now I dare you guys who greeted me in the Park to join the forum and be part of this family :thumbs_up:

I am also surprised by how many folk tell me they 'know' me from my thread - but are not forum members.
