    Yes you did it after the book Charlie, read what ever you can and learn as much as possible and that's the key for success when it's comes to elephant hunting, well done and a classic nice montage of the tusks !

    I hope that Art II and I will get a chance to see them and your photo book during one of my trips to Kansas City. In the meantime feel free to "gloat" over your trophies. I know for damn sure I would. All of us are envious.

    Still waiting on Logwin Logistics to get room on SA airlines to ship. Seems the explanation now is that SAA has a backlog freight in their hub in Washington DC. Of course things are also closed down for the holidays in South Africa.
