Would that include T.R.s that occured in the US, yonks ago, even though I've only been a member of ST a short period? (And bear in mind that the pics taken during the trip(s) were taken by film, so they wont be of high quality).

That's what I was thinking too!

But considering I did send in stuff from the field I think I deserve a little extra time ...... :rolleyes:

There have been some outstanding trip reports, and there are some trip reports still outstanding... and old trip reports? One only has to look at Twaffle's contribution from the 1960s to realise there is no time limit :)

Well I'm up to date on my recent ones and if anyone wants to read some of my older ones then they can be found here:

As you can see I'm more up to date on ST then I am on my own website. See that is dedication!!! B)

Well, dikdik, I've seen a certain video of you tracking wild dogs with Peter that I think needs some explanation...

I already know my trip to SA and Zambia isn't of interest to most ST's but may do it anyway. We'll see.

Why wouldn't we be interested? Sounds like an excuse not to write ...... :)

Ask not what a park/an organization/a country can do for you; ask what you can do for them ;-)

Then you'll have to wait a long time, as I am preparing for FGASA exams right now. Practical is in August, so I have just 10 weeks to study the FGASA lvl1 manual + some remaining chapters of the Africa Nature Training online course. My pics will stay unedited on my computer until at least September...
