I sit at Gate D-9 in McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. I have about forty minutes before takeoff on the first leg of a lot of travel. After a rough check-in at the American counter where they insisted I needed a temporary import permit to fly to South Africa. That was finally straightened out by checking my bags only LAS-PHX-JFK. I knew that I was going to have to deal with having to check my rifle in at the SAA counter regardless. Regardless, it ate up an hour of my time. I’m not upset. Thursday morning (JNB time), I’ll meeting up with my dear friends, @dabloobana and @norfolk shooter. When we met a year ago, we realized that we were all hunting with Pawprint Safaris and decided to coordinate our hunts. For me, it will be my first hunt for Cape Buffalo. Let’s hope the rest of the journey goes well.
