    Well, its now six days to wheels up for SA. This is one work week that is going to really drag by. Looking forward to my second trip maybe even more than the first.
    Anyone flying out of Atlanta to Joberg on the 23rd ?

    I just returned August 1 from my second safari. My first was two years ago, and it was strictly plains game for my son and I. This time I had buffalo on the menu. What an exciting hunt! I convinced my wife I needed to go just one more time and hunt buffalo. What will I tell her for my next???

    Tell her you forgot something... Or better yet, do like I did and convert her into a hunter. It works great...

    That or just point out to here that there's amazing things to see and do there for a wife and family that don't have to include killing things.

    These are the types of trips wei'll be focusing on in the future.
