    Ever since I was 8 years old it has always been my dream to go to Africa. I am now 57 years old and my dream is still to go to Africa.

    I will be more of a reader than writer on this site, but there appears to be so much to read and learn a guy will not be bored.

    Welcome to AH...You have a found a user friendly forum...

    Many on here have started going later in life when time and money have allowed...

    Good luck and there are some great deals if you have the ability to take time off from work and travel on short notice...

    Just look the forum over and send some PM to members.

    Welcome to the AH Linus. There is a lot of great outfitters that are members here, and they have some great offers. I am confident that you are able to find a hunt that suit you. If not, just pm some of them. Another thing you should visit the outfitter section of the site. Lots of revievs and lots of websites to visit.

    Thank you all for the kind reception and words of encouragement.
    Have you ever heard of a hunter having his ashes scattered in Africa? I mentioned it to my wife, in passing, one day and she thought it was a wierd thought.

    Not weird at all

    In fact I had an ex-wife suggest something like that to me

    Fact of the matter was she even offered to help

    Welcome to AH.
    After you start reading here you are going to be going soon enough.

    Sounds like Secondwind knows a contractor for your request. I am sure it has been done.
