    We may just be interested in joining up.

    As with Riaan we also have other factors to consider these days ... but Richards Bay is a reasonably sized town and i am guessing a reasonable medical facility somewhere nearby?
    Think ER - fully equipped.

    It is time (Skunjalo Riaan?) for us to get away from home again even if it is just for an extended weekend.
    They have excellent hospitals there, Melomed and The Bay. I’d skip Ngwelezana though, that was bad when I lived there back before the Rinderpest, doubt its any better now.

    For those who are joining, don't bring nyama for Saturday night. I have a warthog leg that me or Markus will do on the fire for supper. Want to show those attending how to do it in the flames

    Ideal opportunity for a leg as it is too big for us to do at home.

    Geez, for THIS, we might even consider a little drive down to the coast

    OK, good folks - can we get some clarity here?

    Is the proposed venue Mkhuze or Richards bay?
    We enjoy both - so just clarify please.
    I can see some confusion developing here ....

    We may well decide to come through a day earlier and leave a day later as we did before to justify the diesel cost (and once off entry fees if MKhuze).
    Also the Suuz is going to need another service in the not too distant future - Eish.

    Graeme to Mkhuze with the LROC, myself to Mkhuze, everyone else to RB to maul Riaan’s leg. Then they might decide on a day trip to Mkhuze as I see it.

    Yup. So a choice of two venues to go to.

    OK, after a very quick discussion with SWAMBO we have decided to join the group at Richards Bay.

    Main considerations: (In no particular order)

    Less KM from Pinetown = less diesel needed.
    Isuzu is nearing Km for next service and I am not ready for it yet.
    Cheaper camp fees & no entry fee

    Close by medical facilities

    Something to do with Nyama and Riaan's cooking skills ....

    Also I think they sell Tafel lager at the nearby shopping center - the final clincher.

    See you there - just advise which section we will be camping in so that we can request that on on arrival.

    Hi Peter

    Markus will probably be in the F Block somewhere, I'll let Michelle at the park know that you will be arriving also and be on the lookout for you and Erica.

    Sure, will do. Have done a leg of lamb on the fire on It Are Time, in December I think.

    Hi Guys, just a quick headcount, who is joining us in Rbay with a possible trip up to Mkuze? Like I said, a very flexible weekend. F-Block it is.

    Appologies for speaking for the others- so far Markus and Zelda, along with Peter and Erica will be camping at Richards Bay. As mentioned earlier I plan to visit in the late afternoons and evenings as we can't camp.

    Likewise Graeme but there was no planning or notice for this weekend so it is what it is. Heinz's idea was a good one, check where who is camping and pull in where you like.
