Wow! A toast to Pieter and Seafire. Soon two more unsuspecting souls will get bitten by the safari bug and come to love Africa as do most of us.

Wow guys, I really don't know what to say! I never thought that I would actually make it to Africa! I have so much planning to do! I get to have ankle surgery again on January 16th, and will be on crutches for about 8 weeks according to my doc. This gives me a reason to take my physical therapy really seriously this time! If I don't I won't be able to make this trip! Time to get into a shape other than round.

I'm going to be asking a LOT of questions! I'm definitely going to need a new rifle, because I'm pretty sure that none of the 20-some other rifles that I have are suitable for a trip to Africa smile

All I can say at this point is WOW and Thank You!

Congratulations to the soldiers that will be hunting the dark continent! It goes without saying all of us will expect a trip report and lots of pictures in order to ride along vicariously.

Seafire, I salute you and the judges efforts to organize and make final determinations on this contest. I'm positive it wasn't an easy task... especially the judging.

Pieter, you're a class act. A truly wonderful gesture of generosity and camaraderie.

Thanks the spirit! Now you can join in the 9.3 vs. .375 H & H debates, all the while knowing that a .300 Mag will suit you well for PG.

Darn...if I had known it was an actual contest instead of a random drawing I would have put a little more effort into what I wrote.

Oh well.

Good on the winners and Pieter. Good luck on the hunt.
