    You know you are a safari addict when:
    The pictures in your wallet are of your African Trophies and not the wife.

    When you design an Africa room in the house you're planning, and you haven't even been yet.
    And when you've already bought the .375 H&H although the only game around is deer, goats and roos.
    Overkill is underestimated!

    When on the day you return from safari #5, you ask the wife to help save for the next trip trying for next year.
    I started saving 3 weeks ago on my first day back stateside, she said "yes, lets go"! :-)

    "You know your a Safari Addict when"....You walk into your bank and the loan officer says "I haven't seen you in five years, since your here, the last loan must be paid off and you must be planning another trip to Africa"

    "You know you are a safari addict when", you are spending too much time away from the wife and she is suspicious, all this time you are spending it with your taxidermist.

    even worse (like me)

    Your guns are cleaned, your bags are packed, you check "hunting deals" twice a day and have 5 airlines on speed dial

    As the current S.O. says.... a sad little man

    Every time you have to go to the airport and you see someone in Khaki you are wondering "I bet he's going hunting!

    When driving arround your town, you start to notice every wooded lot looks like the African bush!........then you start to hallucinate......Did I just see a Kudu standing there!

    When you have to go buy an XMark Zero turn lawnmower (a couple hours from now) and you keep thinking that "my son and I are going on our first safari and that is the same price."
    Then you wonder how much the neighbors would complain if you booked a trip for next year with that money and just let the grass grow.

    When you start dreaming of ways to smuggle a raw kudu tenderloin past the guys at customs........

    When you mention the word "Safari" and your taxidermist cracks a huge grin.......

    When you're standing at the Blesbok exhibit at the San Diego zoo and some busybody gets all offended when she sees you looking through trophy photos to see if yours is bigger than the one in the exhibit........... That still cracks me up!
