    Take more pictures than you think you should.
    Take time to enjoy everything about the trip, not just the hunting.
    Notice the little things, birds, insects, plants, reptiles.
    Don't get hung up on your species list, take what comes your way and enjoy it.
    Don't put pressure on you or your PH, hunt relaxed and you will get more from the experience.
    You only get one first time so make the most of your adventure.

    REB1136, the long ride isn't very enjoyable but tolerable. Its what's waiting for you when you get there that counts. Good luck on your hunt.
