    As the sun sets in the west and the sky turns from blue to black, the stars emerge to start their nightly dance around the Southern Cross an so comes the end of another African Safari. For those who have - the hook is set and the pull begins to once again return to the Dark Continent. For those who have not, they can not even imagine. Cliff Biggs 2011

    Had friends that accompanied me to Namibia 3 years ago (first timers, only going once to Africa, wife not too warm to the idea) call me and say they had booked with our PH at the time (Jamy Traut) for another hunt next April and begged us to go with them. After a few months of consulting the financial Gods and putting off some house maintenance we have agreed to go again. Two trips 12 months apart, WHEW! Now the fun starts again.

    Cliff, you joined AH Anonymous. But this site will not facilitate a cure, only maintenance of the habit.
    Good luck on your hunt.
    Put pots and pans under the leaks to catch the water.

    Don't really know what I'm going after as I have so many now. May bring a bow this time and be very selective. This trip funds are a little tight because of the trip 5 months ago. This one wasn't planned, just friends begging for us to join them again. As I say to every one- If you go once - you will return. It's a sickness, no a disease.

    I just wish it was, then I could get my safari on Medicare! Enjoy your hunt, no matter what you go after!
