First Nyala, the order on the above isn't correct, doesn't really matter.
Many times over my time on this sight I've acknowledged how very blessed my life has been. This trip has been no exception to what has been a very humbling and fortuitous life. Thank you for sharing with me.

An excellent adventure no doubt. Thank you for letting us tag along with you and your bride on your safari.
You have lit the fire within my friend.

Call me anytime, you and Sue would have a great time. Don't wait until you retire, that is my great regret.

There were many aspects to this hunt that were positive and life changing. Delta Airlines has screwed with us coming over and now going home. I fired off a letter to the assistant state attorney General of Oregon, with screen shots of what they did to our tickets, recorded audio of Catherine's conversations with the agent saying yes I see your seats are available and you can have them for the increase fair" showed the seats we had booked were now available for 1500.00 more /each than what we paid. Funny thing is we sent them a copy of what we sent to the AG. Got our seats back. But still not the original ones we booked in January. I may, should I ever meet the CEO
Of Delta, punch that SOB in the mouth. Folks shouldn't be allowed to cheat like that.

I just talked to one of my younger brothers, big shot Lawyer in Portland. Says this happened in RSA I probably got nothing.
Oh well I got to vent and we will never fly Delta again

Those are some amazing animals. Sorry to hear about your flight issues; in solidarity, Delta is off my list now as well.

Don't know how I missed this before. What a trip!! Can't imagine the game that must be in a place like that, not to mention just the experience in general. Too much for me to take in all in one read. Will have to go over your posts more in detail when it's not near bed time.

Congratulations and thanks a bunch for taking the time to post real time updated results and stories as you were going along. I will go back over your posts and pictures when I have more time. Certainly worth it. Again, congratulations on a once in a lifetime experience and thanks for allowing us to share it.

On our way home, currently in London. Somebody want oysters for dinner last night. Feeling really bad today, all115 lbs of her just ran off a rugby side for making too much noise. I'd post a picture of her sleeping on the bench, but she'll beat me like a yard dog.

Hoo, boy, oyster on the half shell. And they even have Tabasco in London! Must have a lot of good ol' boys visiting. I'm truly enjoying your updates as you take this whole crew along with you. Good show.(y)

Excellent. While it is always nice to get away, it is undoubtedly good to return home.
