    Yes Sir you are correct!
    I have been infected by this disease. I have been home 11 days since my first trip. I have thought about it every day. I already have quote on a 2019 trip from PH and just waiting on Delta to post up June flight schedules to get a ticket and then we set dates for June 2019 hunt. Africa is addicting and so is AH. Wish I had made a trip years ago. At least I am single and dont have wife and kids to support. Just my habit

    Then 304 days, then 303 days, 302 days, 301 days................................................................................................................then 1 day and "did I forget anything"? Consider attending a hunting expo to alleviate some of the pain.:ROFLMAO:

    Africa is a very well known place for hunting. There are lots of professional hunters come here for the purpose of hunting. I will go there next year.

    There is less expensive hope. Since I went to the U of Nairobi in the 70's (yes, I'm getting old) , I've been back and lived and worked and hunted in various parts of Africa many times. Here's the newest thing for my wife and I.....we volunteer with wildlife veterinarians and on game reserves doing research and management....for a fraction of the cost of a safari or a hunt. We often manage the animals HANDS ON. We do everything from rhino dehorning, wound care, animal capture, etc. This spring we "worked" for 7 weeks and hunted for 1 week on one of the game farms we were called to for buffalo care. Interested...I can get you info on some of the better organizations we've been involved with (some aren't so good). I don't get paid, but like to support the cause and love of African wildlife and ecology. We're back again next spring for 2 months on 3 different projects.

    My first one was 2011 in The Limpopo and I’ve been to South Africa or Namibia every year, I’ve done back to back 2 times. I leave for the Caprivi Strip in 3 weeks

    Why, oh why, did you not warn me prior to this? A few short weeks ago and I might have been saved. I did like the response where the planning started even before the first trip ended. I thought I was the only one.
