    Wink My name is Bill and I am an addict....

    My name is Bill & I've been an addict for Africa my whole life it seems. But since I finally got to go to see Lady Africa, well words can't seem to express. I posted on here that Africa is a drug once.

    Last night I purchased my 3rd trip in three years.

    I know I have a problem, but if you try to cure me we may have a problem


    This is for all of you who have not been addicted yet....BE CAREFUL...YOU MAY NEVER RECOVER EITHER

    I am with you brother, headed out in Sept. for the 5th time. I do not call it an addiction anymore, I call it living a dream. I really wasn't going to go this year but I got such a great deal I couldn't pass it up. I tell my wife everytime that this trip will get it out of my system but it hasn't worked yet. I guess I'll just have to keep trying.

    Karamojo,

    Very true & factual u write about AFRICA ! Its intoxicating , the obsession for this beautiful land , animals & hunting can never erase or die till we live , and its the worst of addictions , and is much better than the best of scotches. Waiting for July to take my plains game safari , after 4 long years shall I tread on the land of every hunters dream and the time seems to run at a very slow pace . Hail AFRICA !!!

    Good for you Bill, the first step in any 12 step program is to admit you have a problem!

    There is no known cure! My wife wishes there was though!

    Africa is undoubtedly extremely addictive but there is a cure.

    Try living here for a few years and dealing with African officialdom and you'll be instantly cured.

    I've been running a business here for over 30 years and living here for more than 10 years and STILL have regular visa problems..... and it drives me nucking futs!

    I sometimes wonder why I bother with it all.....

    If you take the wife , you will be doubly cursed/blessed. My wife planned our second trip before the plane left Joberg on our first trip return. The 4th and 5th are planned and she plans on shooting stuff. I don't think she is buying that she must shoot an impala for meat on every trip anymore. I guess I am blessed......... at least I will get to watch.
