    I just wanted to thank everyone for the great information on this site. I have been a member for a bit, but have not taken the time to introduced myself. I live in Anchorage, Alaska now after 10 years in the bush. I have my first safari planned for September 2015 (14 day plains game in SA). I look forward to playing a more active role on the site. Thanks for having me!

    Regards,

    Mike

    The wait is already killing me, but I'm trying to use the time I have wisely! Moose hunt in September, then more planning for side trips in SA.

    Welcome and good move going with a 14 day safari, on my trip we only had 8 days hunting, it was fantastic but ended way too soon. I gotta admit a guy from Alaska going to Africa makes me rather jealous - at home or in Africa, you're in paradise.

    Thank you for the kind words. I have been fortunate to spent the last 14 years in Alaska, thanks to the U.S. Army getting me here. I went with 14 days, knowing even that would go too fast. I already have the second trip rolling around in the back of my head. This is something I have always wanted to do, since I read my first hunting magazine 40 years ago. I'm glad to hear your hunt went well!

    It sounds like you had a great trip! The wait will be tough, but I hope to keep busy. The dead of winter will be the worst, but I hope to make it to Vegas for the SCI convention again.

    Thank you, and I already have the thoughts of a second hunt rolling around in my head!
