My previous post was a little dramatic, but I *am* bummed about my laptop. Much harder to do anything online, and I don’t have access to most of my data without the laptop. It’s still there, you just can’t navigate to it with a dead display.

Our current safari camp at Karongwe Game Preserve is wonderful, but the animal density was much better in Kruger Park. Accommodations here are very, very good. Pictures of it all will generally have to wait until I get back to the States. And we have some superb pictures.

Health status here halfway thru the trip is…rough. Lots of pain and we’ll leave it at that. If I had known it would be like this I would have shifted the trip a few weeks. But at this point the only way thru is forward.

Finally, my old friend John Wiseman’s memorial service is today. I’ll never forget John, he was one of a kind. RIP, buddy.
