7 days goes very quickly in Africa! My first safari was only 7 days and I swore all others would be at least 10 days. Glad you guys had a good trip with minimal issues. Welcome home!

A hearty Congrats goes out to you and Austin, Phil, for a wonderful hunting experience together. Great trophies, each and every one of them and they will make special mounts on the walls. You will be able to retell the successful stalks, the busted stalks (not that they matter but they are worth retelling), and the adventure that you were able to share together (and with all of us!). Excellent job mate!

It's good to be home and be with my wife and younger son, but missing Africa already. I thought I'd add a few photos. I will add them first, post and then edit some remarks and repost. So if you see the post before the remarks are added, come back in a few.
It was a full moon when we left for HartzView. At one point during the flight I looked out the window and just thought this would make a good pic with my Iphone. Yes, that's the plane's wing.
One of those human statues outside of the Hofbrau Haus in Munich.
Inside the Hofbrau Haus looking back at the main entrance. This place is huge and well if you like German beer and fare, it's a great place to go. Hop the "S8" train from the Munich airport, get off at the Marienplatz stop and you'll be in a big square. The Hofbrau Haus is a short walk from there. There are other beer gardens and shopping in this old town section of Munich.
A pic of the fountain we sat by for our lunch in beer garden.
A horrible picture of Austin's blesbok taken with my Iphone.
Boolit and Roxy having a nap after good morning's work on Austin's Eland.
A less posed picture of Austin's eland and the whole team.
The rump of my eland, the back bone is to the right. Notice the scars bearing testament to the presence of lions in this area.
Stuck in the sand in the Kalahari. This is at the top of a dune. Our drivers were simply amazing getting up and over the dunes and avoiding the sand traps. I think we got stuck twice in the two days we hunted out there. After a little digging, we were on our way in less than 5-10 minutes.
I just thought this was a cool picture.
This one is just for sesstoppleman, is this the beer you've told me about you like so well?

Yes Phil, thats the one! I love that stuff! I smuggled a 6 pack out of Zim last trip to bring home. Guys in security at Bulawayo had the devils own time trying to figure out what it was in the Xray machine! When I told them, they all laughed and waived it thru. How much did you bring home for me?? Yuk yuk! Sure wish we could get that stuff here. And I have already looked into it, it aint available in the states. Thanks Phil!!

Loved your report and especially the pics. As I told you via the PM, congrats to you and your son, the stuff memories are made of. Those pics of the truck in the sandhills look very similar to parts of West Texas.
