@JES Adventures Thanks for sharing your incredible adventure! I just got back from my first safari and am already thinking about the next one - the house boat sounds like great fun! I think we'll have to do something similar.

Thanks rinehart0050, now that you're working on #2 you'll really enjoy the planning, it's almost as good as the trip itself. Houseboat trip was the best, I highly recommend it.

Thanks Cody, you said it, I got out of the airport and it was humid and 98 degrees! I wish I could've turned around and headed back. But now I'm back at the grind, catching up but as always planning the next trip.

Thanks Mike, look forward to having a Mosi with you next time I'm in Zambia. From '14 to now, I continue to be impressed with Zambia - It's a great Safari Destination. Hope you're having a great season.

All I Can say is wow.

Thanks @Waterguy631, it was amazing but actually hard to believe it was almost a year ago! Hunt and fish with your kids as often as you can, it offers the greatest rewards in the outdoors.

I'm a few years away from grandkids but you give me renewed hope about my future on the Dark Continent planning for the next generation!

BTW - where are you in Wisconsin? I'm headed up to Eau Claire in a couple of weeks to hunt turkey with family. This will be my 3rd attempt at an Eastern Bird to finish my Royal Slam.
