    It has been two and one half months since my return from the trip of my life. I told my mother when I was nine years old that I was going hunting in Africa when I grew up. My grandmother made me a leopard print band for my black cowboy hat. For the next few years, I stalked my brother's cat with a squirt gun, dreaming of lions. After forty years, Ernest and Marita Dyasen of Spear Safaris in Mpumalanga, South Africa, made my life dream a reality. I will continue this post with plenty of photos and stories of the very real and incredible adventure they made possible for me and three of my friends from the U.S.

    Best, Michael Harrison
