    This has got to be loads more exciting than say, a trip down to the corner chemist! :ROFL:

    I can't sleep and I'm not even going! :mental:

    Tom :)macwave:... you do have the camera adapter for your iPad don't you Chris?)

    For the next 2 weeks the forecast is rain - during the dry season :dozey:

    Oh and Jeff I am a hypercritical nutcase :mental: and hope one day to achieve the top level in this particuar evolution known as Keithogenesis.

    Is it wrong that I have the anxiety bubble as well :unsure:

    I think as the Safari involves a 3 1/2 hour drive to the reserve then a 2 hour drive around the reserve until lunch I just hope the kids will be happy - I would wory less without the kids but I get a little tremulous just thinking about it if I'm honest

    Wow, it's SO close. :mental:

    I'm sure they will be fine, maybe a bit over-excited though.

    Oh wait...that would be....

    No Tom :lol:

    but I can write a daily report directly onto pages then copy and paste it - as opposed to my ususal handwritten scrawl in a diary

    Ahhh... clarity! :brightidea:

    Now that we've cleared that up, it only leaves electricity to be concerned about! :ROFL:

    Tom :)macwave:... and of course, the wildly useful potty for the Mrs.)

    Copy and paste will work fine :yes: tried it already.

    Electricity - well they use the same 3 pin plug we do at 240v and all the hotels and lodges have full electricity - one will be permenently reserved for my camera batteries and the other to charge all the i devices and Nintendo DS's :D

    maybe we'll look at a she wee :D

    Somehow I doubt if there's any "maybe" about it. :unsure:

    Not if there's going to be continued domestic bliss!
