    I'll get it started.

    You know you are a safari addict when:

    You compare other hunting trip prices to an african safari.
    For example - "hmm $4,500 for a mule deer hunt....i could go to Africa for that!"

    LOL, Reminds me of the joke:

    Why do divorces cost so much? Because they are worth it!

    Good point, humorous though it may be

    after 14 years my SO flatly stated that I had been on so many hunting trips and since she had always wanted to go to Europe I should forgo one of my hunts and send her instead

    Now the good news, 2 years later and she's still there.

    This actually happened today... (I taught the kid this)

    When your neighbors 2 year old son comes over and can name two of the 4 African game animals on the wall "Bok and Beest", I love Africa and it's affects on everyone, including 2 year olds.

    Forget naming your pets boring names like-"Safari" or "Nyala"-A true safari addict names them after obscure hunting zones/concessions in Africa-"Matetsi"-"Donde"-etc LOL
    Never been to Africa-looks like it might happen this year. My wife is planning a trip to Florida theme parks this spring (she got a bonus at work to pay for it) and I said one condition for me to go (based on earlier posts in this thread) is that I get to bring Shot Placement diagrams for African animals to Animal Kingdom and look at them with real animals in the background.

    When you figure your divorce cost 5 hunting trips to Africa.....but was worth it! When you then cash out what is left in your retirement account(after she got half), sell 13 guns and borrow money so you can go on your first and only(due to money) hunt in Africa and take your daughter with you.

    When your daughter postpones her wedding one year so she can go to Africa with you and pay most of her way.


    When get rid of some furniture and a stereo system to make room for the pedestial mounts you plan to have when you finally get to go to Africa for the long awaited hunt.

    When you tell everyone NO XMAS gifts this year as you need to save as much money as you can for your 2013 Africa hunt.

    When you consider selling your pain pills to finance your Africa trip but do not because with your luck the first costomer would be a cop and you cannot go if you are in jail.

    When you hope your ex-wife dies so you can get back the half of your retirement pension she is getting and be able to make a second trip to Africa.

    I was thinking the other day - unless I pick the right six numbers on a Saturday night, I'll never be able to afford an elephant hunt. Then it hit me - cash in my IRA and I can go! Still got a few years and maybe something will change, but that's the plan!

    Africa is a disease with no cure once infected. Everything else pales by comparison.
