I start my journey back to RSA on June 4. My rifle case is packed. My carryon is packed. Only my second checked bag is unpacked, waiting on books to arrive to bring to my friends kids before I pack that. I am driving my dog nuts.
I just want to go. Even my first time hunting in RSA time was not dragging like this.

Obligatory photo of the best dog in the world after he took his son on an adventure in the back pasture.

Spend your time selling your (or your wife’s) personal belongings to raise money for additional animals.
We all pack and repack and ultimately overpack.

I am picking up some overtime and putting off buying a Jeep. The packing and double checking is what is driving the old dog nuts, he knows what suitcases mean, and he is not happy.

I shoot every day of the last week before wheels up. Shoot, clean, shoot clean and on the last day shoot five and don't clean. Can't practice too much.:D

The looks on those woo-woos faces are priceless.

Times like this I wish I could be put in an artificial coma and be woken up in time for the hunt.
:LOL::LOL::LOL:I wish I could be put in a coma an hour before being loaded on the plane for that long slog to Africa and then revived at SAPS.

The pup on the right is 11 weeks old and doesn’t know that being a muddy farm dog is not perfectly acceptable at all times and places. His father on the right is 11 years old, and knows perfectly well that he has earned the right to do as he pleases.

I hear ya friend! Just 19 days until I leave for Namibia! I'm having trouble focusing on anything else. I've packed and repacked several times. Have a great time in RSA. I'm looking forward to your report and pictures.
