    Alright folks, in 24 hours I'll be on a flight to South Africa for what will be a 1-2 year adventure. Like last time, this thread will be where I will post both my new blog entries and random musings and photos that don't fit into the way I use my blog.

    I just wrote the first post of this adventure, a summer recap and preparation, check it out here: http://scottsnextadventure.blogspot.com/2011/12/summer-in-review-and-next-big-thing.html

    Have an awesome trip!

    Remember what happens in Africa stays in Africa...except AIDS...that shit will come back with you.

    Keep your booty hole dirty so no strange African men try to rape our fiddy. :cool:

    be careful brotein. they dont take kindly to white folks in central africa unless youre a journalist.. even then, its very very dangerous.

    i'll be here waiting patiently for nude tribal women pics. just make sure they look good and clean.

    I love how open ended and loosey-goosey the plan is - "1-2 years..." ROFL! That's the way to do it though, leaves you open to pretty much any opportunity that appears.

    At the airport now! I fly Seattle, USA -> Frankfurt, Germany -> Johannesburg, South Africa -> Cape Town, South Africa. Like 41 hours of travel time.

    Also, we got our truck! A 1999 Isuzu 260 double cab, pictures of that soon.

    Direct flights are really expensive. For his length of stay it's fine, he's got lots of time. But for a shorter trip? <1 month? No fucking way. At least not the flight back.

    I still stand in utter amazement that planes can make it that far in two hops.
