    Well Guys and Gals its finally here the longest weekend of the year, yes its Memorial Day weekend here in the States but thats not what makes it long. What makes it long is that we fly on Monday leaving at 09:41AM from Huntsville AL in route to the East Cape going back to Huntershill Safaris in the beautiful Heuningklip Valley of the Eastern Cape, South Africa, is your premier hunting safari destination I have a 10 day safari planned for the wife and I that includes a Common Reedbuck , Vaal Rhebuck , Cape Bushbuck , Bushpig and a Warthog for me, Deb will be going for a Zebra, Red Hartebeest, Steenbuck, Common Duiker and a Black Back Jackal and who knows what else once we get there. Words you very seldom hear from a working man "I sure am looking forward to Monday"wish us luck, there will be a hunting report with lot of Pictures as soon as we return.

    I will wish you and Deb best of luck on your upcoming adventure Bob. You may experience some difficulties to sleep this weekend, but look at the bright side, then you may be able to sleep across the Atlantic...In the meanwhile you could clean your gun, go trough the luggage, make sure you got it all, clean your gun, go trough the luggage.....


    :cool:

    Just be sure to take a lot of pics of all the critters I am sure you will succeed in taking.
    All of us want to see all of them and hear the whole story on your return.
