Aloha! 24 hours and I'm off to

Zambia! Thanks to Rocco @ Destiny Africa for putting together this trip and Julian, also @ Destiny Africa for confirming that everything is in order. Hard to believe it's only been 4 months since I was last in Zambia...time flies when you're waiting for another adventure of a lifetime! Thanks to all here who have helped with advice, tips, laughter and knowledge. I'll be back on March 28 with a trip report soon after.
Itinerary:
3/7 Hilo, Hawaii to San Francisco (2 nights with family)
3/9 San Francisco to London, 9 hour layover, lunch with Kavey and another Fodorite
3/10 London to Lusaka to Mfuwe
3 nights Tafika
3 nights Puku Ridge
5 nights Luangwa River Lodge (where I'll celebrate my birthday)
1 night Lusaka Intercontinental Hotel
3 nights London
2 nights San Francisco
3/28 Back to my rock in the middle of the Pacific
Aloha and Mahalo!
Dennis

Aloha, Dennis. Have a wonderful, safe trip. Try not to drink any shower water this time.

I can't wait to hear all about it when you return.

Dennis, have a great trip! With two trips to Zambia in less than one year, I think you can qualify as the Zambian Honorary Consul on the big island.

Hey, Dennis - It's great that you are taking your second trip so soon. My trips were Jul, Aug, Sept & Oct so they were all 13 mths apart and that's a long time to wait.

Without a doubt you'll be having a great birthday! Have a great trip!

Dennis,
Looking forward to seeing you on Friday.
Looks like it could be a lively little GTG as I think Julian may be able to join us too!

Sorry if this is too late for you to see before your departure, I have been of-line for a few days.

Have a great trip. It will be interesting to see what a difference the time of year makes--and your memory of the first trip will be fresh.
