    Bless your heart H. Myles!
    Here's hoping for no more hiccups.

      Emirates has done a great job for us through all this misadventure, just as they have done in the past. A first class airline.

          On the way to Africa we were laid over eleven hours in Heathrow. During the long flight across the pond I took a pill for restless leg syndrome which acts up in pressure changes. Left me a bit rummy when we got to the airport. I guess I slept through most of the layover.

          Safe trip and stay in touch when you can. I'm sure they'll have wifi at your tent camp. Wish I was going with you. Can't wait to get back there.

            For a long time, to Africa, oh, I wouldn’t dare to do that. I wish you good luck and that there are no bad moments.

            I advise you to play it safe with weapons otherwise there may be problems.

              Don't worry about Happy. He's been handling weapons for at least seventy years and I think he told us once he's been to Africa hunting something like fifty times. If he was a different colour he'd probably be president of some country over there by now.

                    After the first day I knew I would have to go back. Sadly, it looks like my hunting partner has probably put in his last trip. Nothing left for him to shoot over there.

                      Happy -
                      Just curious.
                      Have you ever seen any AR-15 rifles over there?

                        Honk, do you think Happy Myles is a screen name for Dave Petzel ?

                          I have often thought that myself. That or someone ultra popular trying to stay incognito in California.

                            I don't think so. Buckshot met Happy at an SCI gig a couple of years ago. I think I recall someone else on here has also been in touch with him personally. Happy posted a bunch of safari photos of himself and his African game in the old Trophy Room before it disappeared. I'm pretty sure he is the real deal. Anyway, Happy is clearly a class-A gentleman. Petzel not so much. He's not a bad guy (most of the time) but just not the class act we see from Happy. Very few of us are.

                                MMBA, miles and miles of bloody Africa. Still holding out for one or two more big bull buffalo. I may need to lower my standards as we are leaving for Uganda in three days. Have taken a few odds and ends with my 6.5 to see how it works. Will have to write about it later.

                                99, no semi automatic riles allowed hunting anywhere in Africa that I know of.
