    Default One Week and Counting!

    My son and I leave on the 11th for our PG safari to the RSA! It is our first and we are stoked. All of the months of research and prep are finally coming together. I want to thank all of you on this forum for your help and advice the last 6 months. This is a wonderful venue and a great place for advice and support.

    Good Luck Custom!

    You'll return home a different man.

    I also begin hunting on the 11th on my second hunting trip in Africa.

    How old is your son? I can only imagine having begun this as a kid, or even as a young man.

    Thanks, Jeff. He is 23 and graduating from college. At that age I could only fantasize about Africa.

    Custom, good luck to you and your son. That would be a dream trip for me, and hopefully I can pull it off in a couple of years when he graduates from college. In the meantime, I'm leaving out on May 11 also to RSA. Are you by any chance on the Delta to J'Burg direct that evening? If so my buddy and I are on that one also.

    Good luck to all. It's my first time too, and to say I'm excited is an understatement.

    You have to love the build up to the season.....

    The avalanche of hunters getting on the planes. Always feel the excitement.

    Thanks, everyone. JGRaider, we are on the direct flight from ATL to J'Burg that night. I will PM you my cell number. Maybe we can hook up for a beer. We have a pretty long layover there.
