    Default Hello, All

    Hi Folks,
    I just joined A-H and will be looking forward to future communications with everyone.
    I've been an oil refinery worker for the past 34 years, working a lot of 12 to 17 hour shifts and only able to dream of one day actually making it to Africa to hunt.
    Retirement is in sight(The light at the end of the tunnel . . .?)
    The first few years of retirement my wife and I hope to do a lot of travelling and it may be my opportunity to convince her that we need to do an African hunt.
    I'll have a lot of questions and, hopefully, I won't be too annoying with them.
    I grew up on a small farm here in the Midwest hunting upland game, fishing, and running trap lines.
    It was a great way for a kid to grow.
    I don't know what happened or how, but, all of a sudden I've got all this gray hair.
    It's interesting how gray hair makes your body ache!
    So, that's my intro.
    Looking forward to chatting with you all.

    A buddy of mine, years back, used to refer to those of us with graying hair as "Silver Backs".
    Appropriate ,I guess!

    Welcome to AH JimmyL. Start knocking some trips off before anymore "gray" shows up.
