I thought rather than send a complete hunting report at the end if the trip I would send a journal with what happens every day.

Tuesday 18 Feb 2020
Left Jakarta on Qatar a bit after midnight and transited in Doha. Now on the way to Johannesburg. Stay a night at the 4 Seasons with my brother who arrived earlier. Marius Goosen will pick us up at 10 AM tomorrow and drive to a town called Alldays in Limpopo. Reading a book on the plane by John Burger titled “Horned Death”. Most entertaining.

Thank you. Nice water buffalo. I went Barra fishing at Bathurst Island with my cousin Terry Howard, a long time resident of Darwin.

Tuesday 18 Feb 2020 continued

Arrived on time using Qatar. A great airline with excellent service and decent food and drinks selection.

We had our temperatures checked before being allowed to disembark.

When I reached immigration there was not a single person present. I walked around and got admonished for not waiting.

After picking up my luggage I was met by a representative from the 4 seasons who took me to a car waiting outside and in 30 mins I was in the hotel. The hotel is fabulous with impeccable service. We enjoyed dinner with South African wines and went back to our rooms.

Look forward to being picked up by Marius tomorrow and starting our trip.

We then went to the shooting range and got a course on shooting with the tripods

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
