    That was a mighty fine introduction. Always good to hear about kids spending time in the wild with their parents. Sadly, we don't hear it often enough.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    P.S. Admitting the Thread Injector is the easy part. It's when you get caught spending time talking to the little old ladies at the fabric shop that's embarrassing.

    Some Pics

    I thought I'd add some pics of some typical South African camping.

    My boys and I after Mags setup his shelter.


    Starting off


    Some Typical African Bush


    A pretty little place to rest


    Can you see why we NEED a hammock - That ground was TOUGH man!


    Trying to make it comfortable (this was a loosing battle)


    Another site (my mate owns this farm) that we are going to next month.


    Sorry for the loooong post.
