To TEAM BULL DOG…. WOOHOO!!!!!! So excited for you guys! We will be tracking your progress through Africa. Enjoy your last few days at home. Lots of love, Binks xxxx
All the best Team Bulldog. Have a fantastic trip and look forward to sharing the experience with you guys. Bon Voyage!! Regards
Soak in the African experience through your pores/paws.
Team Bulldog all the best we hope you have a wonderful trip and may everything go according to plan !
Hi Guys…..from Toronto Canada. This is Rob Harraway – Lesley Meyer is staying with us at the moment and sends her love to Mike and the rest of you lunatics !!!!! We hope you are surviving okay and enjoying the adventure. We know Africa is not for sissies and you okes are not sissies, so assume you are slagging wild dogs and the rest and getting lots of protein. The Recces in the old days could live for weeks on grasshoppers and no doubt you will live like kings out there in the jungle. Avoid locals with big cooking pots and bones in their noses… Once a Buffalo always a Buffalo…
