Re: Africa Safari 2012

I think my issue would be not being able to bring back mounts (without lots of red tape). The owner of the company I work for and his wife went to Africa on a hunt and it took a almost a year to have the mounts shipped back and customs cleared.

I picked them up at a freight forwarders in Romulus, Michigan for them. Awesome but I'm not really fond of the cost or the wait.

......and then the shots and all that.......

At least your dad got to do what he wanted before being operated on. Hopefully, he recovers and continues on.

Thanks for the prayers buddy. Dad is needing them. Praying he gets back to normal soon. He's still sedated and they are keeping an eye on his lungs now.
