It is not? Image
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

nearly each time 3 nights (in the small camps always if it's possible)
open windows... it's an obligation
music... only if I'm away from home a long time
never the first or the last at the gate... only when I'm ready, often 15 min later and 1-2 hours before gates open/close
no siesta... lost of time... picnic en route, on the road, by a pond, everywhere there is something to see, heard
I can stay hours at the same place, to see, hear...
I use picnic spot only for toilet =O:
prepare fire, need a certain time, but better now, in the same time put the pictures on my latop, then braai

bed early... so tired, or sunset drive (often to avoid Baboons and Vervets)
but no Monkey in Kgalagadi... nothing to avoid... only my fears of the dark =O:
absent for health problems

having entered through the gate i open all the widows as aircon is not permitted.

switch off the phone.

stop at the first big tree and assemble my cameras and lenses and put them on the passenger seat.

hang my bird book and binos over the passenger seat head rest.

take out my scatalogue and tree book and put them between the seats

take out the cashews and put them in one of the cup holders.

take out the billies and the leatherman and put that all in the other cup holder..

take my leg off and put it on the back seat.

take a deep breath of kruger air and

off i go !!!!!!

Taking your leg off =O:

Can you imagine what impact the thought of it might have on someone
who doesn't know about you and your leg... :shock:
