Well here I sit in Missouri City just south of Houston and if I am lucky I might be back in Kruger next March.
I need to win the Lotto so I could spend 6 month in Botswana, Lesotho or Swaziland with my hobby of Ham Radio then I would spend a week in each of those 6 month in Kruger. Have never been North of Lataba nor been able to spend more than 4 nights. I am so bored here since I retired from teaching.
