Okay I realize it's more than 6 months away, but I thought I'd start my planning now. I've been home less than a week after my first African safari and I can only think about how/when I'm going to get back. But to soothe the itch, I was giving thought to going to the convention in January. I've never been before but have heard/read much about it. Furthermore, a friend that nearly went with me on my safari is definitely wanting to go now and so I was thinking about getting him to go to the show too. With work and family commitments I will only be to attend on Friday and Saturday, missing the first two days. For those of you who have been, if I miss those first two days am I giving up too much? Or will I still be able to catch most of what there is to see? I saw where Jerome mentioned in his 2010 SCI thread having an AH get together at this year's show. I think that's a great idea and would love to meet fellow AH members.
