GTG Namibia April/May 2017

Dear fellow travellers, as many of you will head to Namibia in April/May of this 2017, I think it would be a great fun if we could meet somewhere along the route.

As disclosing day-by-day itineraries might be a problem to some of you, I am suggesting to leave the basic data on this thread, and whoever will be travelling in the same or similar period, can contact other member by PM for more details.

Pardon the intrusion xelas but is not your trip 'clockwise'. I blame these new fangled Digital watches!

Loved to have joined you all but running late as usual. However I have already been promised a G&T from one member and am owed a Beer (and ZAR2000) by another.

Have fun. If you see a dustcloud racing over the desert it is not Roadrunner. Just Martin re-locating!! LoL.

Clockwise; I am not wearing a handwatch for many years now, relying on the phone :-((.

I will miss the cloud dust because I have impaired visibility during the nights, and I do not re-locating during nighttime. Sleeping is better and safer! ROFL!!

Something to think about to help recognition.

I know SANParks forumites tie a ribbon to their car, Wingmirror or Aeriel. Maybe TA members could do the same. Green colour? Or an Ollie Owl sticker in the front/rear window? Then you would know each other. I don't think it would work after dark though!

I am headed there in 3 weeks. Short trip with my parents (11 days only). Focus is Etosha. They have never been out of North America. Should be an adventure!

Mar 8-18, clockwise without any south.

That is one great idea, mfuwe. I don't see a sticker would work, but a ribbon for sure. May I suggest a red one, on the driver's side rearview mirror?!
