Hallo from main camp, at Khomas Highland Safaris,
(Mountains west of Windhoek, Namibia).

At the moment, we're in from the bush for lunch.
Just a few minutes ago, the communications company repaired our tower here (baboons had climbed the pole and pulled some wires out).
So at last we have Internet.

The above photo was taken in Heathrow-London Airport.
L to R:
My son Danny (DoubleLunger).
Myself
Dale (old friend from my childhood).

Anyway, so far, collectively we've taken a Hartman Zebra, a red hartebeest, a Springbock, and two gemsbock.

Must go now but hunting is good, owners and staff are good as well.
(Food is also quite good.)

There will be a thorough report at some stage and Danny will post photos as well.
However, it shall have to be after our return as, none of us wish to spend our time in Africa writing reports lol.

Cheers,
Velo Dog.
You're a lucky man Velo dog

I'm thoroughly enjoying your snippets from the bush...Only makes anticipation of the full story more keen.

Thanks enysse,

Brit Air has not mentioned that possibility whatsoever.
Their ploy is to put the victim on hold forever, obviously hoping he will just take it in the arse and quietly go away.
When someone finally answers the line again, they spew out multiple excuses as to why they can do nothing.

British Air is a mob of gangsters,

Did you transit through Thief Row in London?

In reference to the pic with the parrot on VD's shoulder, you have to take friends where you find them!

Agree, but still think the parrot should have been able to find better options.... ;)


What great pictures!!!!

My fav is the "selfie" taken by @DoubleLunger with @Velo Dog standing in the back of the bakkie and scanning the horizon. Priceless....

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
