Sorry, I misread your earlier post and didn't realize the spear was checked separately. Thanks for the clarification.

Calo, Just enjoyed your report about the day in the Crater - how lovely to stay right on the rim. What a lovely style you have. I had just finished posting my Crater report - we must have been a few days behind you. Can't wait to read the rest, but must take a break from the Fodor's site and get back to the real world. Was the orphanage stop part of your itinerary?

I enjoyed your report. I believe you are correct--the 200 cow offer is a first!

Cathy-
I was just posting your trip report in the index, adn noticed that I had printed it out before the last little bit at the end - I just read about the spear being lost. You mentioned a place here in Vancouver - is there a store that I can check for you here, or have you already found one?
I'll be only too happy to go browsing in an African store here for you!

Hi Lynda,
What a very thoughtful offer!

My son and I did take a day to go to Vancouver to search out the store suggested by Collectors Den and he was able to replace his spear with something similar. It's a very nice little store on West Marine Drive called Simply Safari if you're interested in seeing it sometime. Of course it's just not the same as shopping in East Africa!!

Thank you again for the very nice offer to sleuth out the store for us, and thank you too for the wonderful job you're doing with the East Africa Trip Report Index!

Glad this was brought to the top again. I missed the last parts. Interesting and helpful comments on Lobo.

Glad you had a lion-packed end to the Serengeti.

Cathy-
Glad you got the spear replaced! Next time you come over I'd love to have coffee with you - I live in Richmond which is fairly close to the ferry terminal (Tsawassen), we could meet somewhere for coffee!

Is that Marine drive in Vancouver itself or on the north shore in North Vancouver? I'll have to check this store out!

Lynda, I would love to get together for coffee! There's actually another Fodorite in Surrey we could connect with too. Look for Raelond's posts on the forum. She and I have been emailing ever since we met here earlier this year. We're both in the throws of planning (separate) trips to Tanzania in 2008. Maybe we'd better start Planning our own West Coast GTG!!

Simply Safari is 1550 Marine Drive on the north shore. Their website is simplysafaristore dot com, but the store is better than the website.

Now there is a cool idea! I would love to meet up with Raelond as well - yes, I think we should plan a west coast GTG - anytime, let me know! I would even volunteer my house for the event as it is 1/2 way in between the ferries and Surrey.
I think Breezydreezy should come too though - she sounds like fun! Safarimama is in Seattle, I'm sure when she is not traveling, she would love to attend. I am sure there are others too on the forum who could come!

I'm off to help Jim sort thru Day 7 of our our photos....

Cathy and Lynda,
I just ran across your recent posts here and I think a West Coast GTG is a great idea. We could also have it at my house if it didn't work for you Lynda.
The three of us should at least get together sometime. Cathy let me know if you can make it over here for a day I can pick you up at the ferry).

Raelond-
Cathy started another post, did you catch that one? And, no problem on having it here - I'd love to host it! (and thanks for your kind offer!)
