As I was talking to one of my coworkers today they glanced at the calendar and casually blew me away. "So, 13 days till your trip, eh?" I blinked. That couldn't be right....could it? Had my first ever African adventure really snuck up on me? I know I've been trying hard (and failing) not to think about it to avoid the time drags, but there it was on the calendar, black and white. 13 days till wheels up!! I'll be in South Africa with @Lianga Safaris and now that my brain knows how close it is I'm sure that I'm ruined as far as letting time go fast! Ha! Now my wife and I are trying to get everything in order. Got the signed 4457 for the firearms, got the Pelican cases and will carve the foam to fit the rifles tonight, got the other case for the ammo (silly if you ask me, why can't I just store it with the rest f my checked bags. Ah well, British Air for you) and now I'm trying to track down anything extra I might have forgotten or put off because I "had time" to see about it later. Extra batteries for the camera, adapter for plug ins for South Africa, boots...I think those are the major items! Any advice for a first timer going over there (other than to change my user name, when I made the account this was just a dream! I might have to when I get back though!)? Going to be flying into Heathrow with a 12 hour layover (get to see a bit of London, also for the first time!) and from there down to Johannesburg. Thanks in advance for any input!
