27 Days and Counting...
It is almost like waiting for Christmas. I was in to see Sparky the other day and he is also a tad on the excited side. He had originally planned to pick up some supplies at Bass Pro this weekend, but the War Department (so to speak) had other plans. Maybe next week.
I was in the city Thursday - which happened to be my birthday - and I managed to pick up some Under Armour upon the recommendation of a South African contact of Sparky's. Apparently there is a lot of walking when on safari, and the best way to avoid chafing is to stay away from cotton and wear some kind of moisture-wicking base layer like Under Armour. Little does Sparky realize I work up a sweat scratching my ear, never mind hiking the sub-Kalihari in search of zebra. I guess wearing this magical stuff is something I should have experienced earlier.
Today is Father's day, and I have already put a call in to Pa, but he has departed the bunker for town. I will have to call him later. He was up last weekend and mentioned the traditional family picnic which will be taking place on July 22 in Moose Jaw. I told him I would be thinking of him as I scoured the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces looking for critters. After all, it is the thought that counts.
