    Hi all,
    It is after midnight here. My strategy is to stay up all night so I can sleep most of the way from Atlanta to J-town. I will let you know if it works out. I have spent most of the evening packing. I thought I would share a few tips. I save old empty medication bottles for broadhead storage. I also use a zip tie around my bow string to prevent any unwanted dryfiring.On the bow case I write my name and address. I alse write "bow Case". Included is the info that all locks are TSA approved.I am packing about 50% less than last trip. I am taking two releases,range finder,allen wrench set,and medication in my carry-on. I have ample Lorazepam to ensure I sleep the correct hours. Lastly I have this little stuffed walrus that fits in my pocket. Hey you need a good luck charm. goo goo g'joob!

    Africa here I come-Jerry

    wasting my life one arrow at a time!

    Haha! Thanks for that! :) I'll let you know if I use everything I bring. Dad's looked over my list and hasn't said anything's unnecessary, but then again we are trying to have two of everything in case one of our checked bags doesn't show up! I told him we should bring an extra duffel bag for gifts, etc. ;)

    8 1/2 hours until we leave for the airport. We spent ALL day packing and shooting! I'm pretty confident about out preparations, but Dad is a little jittery. Pray that the flight goes without a hitch and we have a safe adventure.

    Thanks for all the help guys and I will be back before I want to be! :satisfied:

    And visiting this forum, writing posts, reading others' comments, looking at their photos, that'll make the time go by faster...NOT. I love the excitement, it brings back the anticipation and planning for my first trip and now that I'm getting ready for my first Zim trip in a couple of months, your post ratchets me up a bit further.

    Please post photos, not just of your animals but the entire experience, I want to see more of what the Limpopo area looks like.
