    Wow, time has flown, I am down to 37 days before I leave. Life is busy & I'm sure the time will fly by. Got pretty much everything I need I hope. Trying to shoot as much as I can, but life & weather keep getting in the way. At least it seems spring has finally sprung here... the 4' of snow is starting to melt.

    Ahh.. to be seeing the stars over Africa for the first time.

    It is great to see everyone starting to get excited as their date of departure comes screaming or crawling at them.

    Good luck. Post those reports and pictures.

    Good grief, my June 11th Africa trip is seeming like forever away now with so many going in April and May...but I have a red stag hunt in New Zealand in April to go to first, so that will help cut the time I suppose.... ;)
