    Hell, I’ve already a booked a 17 day hunt in RSA next year and a couple more days in Mauritius after that. I’m pretty sure I may have found a sport to stick with. Buff in 2024 is the plan....

    Sitting in the airport in J’berg. I’m tired amid flying. Plus the only available seats for flight to Maun are economy. Ugh. At least it is less than 2 hours if all goes well.

    Funny story at airport: guy with “G & D Slaven” on sign to meet us (the initials of my dad and me). We go with him and start chatting and we are headed out of the airport and I asked about our rifles. He said he had no idea we had rifles. I was a bit confused so I said since he was riflepermits I assumed he knew we had rifles. He said he wasn’t with rifle permits. So we head towards SAPS with him to meet riflepemits unloading a couple suitcases off of the cart and they look confused. Apparently there was a D and G Slaven on our flight from Houston with us. What are the odds???
