Yay, you figured it out! I knew you'd figure out where your lost time went. I've been on Dinosaur.

Once.

That was enough.
Thanks guys! Yes, someone was goofing around yesterday instead of doing much needed outdoor projects lol! I think I want to try and do my own t-shirt DISigns and figured better siggie images would be a good way to start. Not my dream images but it was fun playing. I am more accustomed to working with print layouts so this was a little different and will take some getting used to on the sizing but I'll get better at it! If anyone wants something, let me know, a good excuse to practice lol.

I'm finally all caught up! I loved the photo safari! I had an "incident" with my camera on the safari that let to much muttering and futtering. Can't wait to see how the rest of the trip pans out!

Browser locked & double posted. So I guess I should add something here. Hmmm.....let's see. The Hoop Dee Doo looked pretty cool. I'm all about comfort food. Love me a mess of fried chicken!

Thanks! cool software helps lol. And I'm a closet geek with stuff like that. Well, not even closet but it's always been print stuff before. It's really all DSD's fault, she wanted custom avatars for her warrior cat sites and just couldn't make what she wanted with basic software so once I made her cats I figured I really should do something about my siggie. lol! (like the way I justify it?) It's a good excuse for me to get more familiar with the features of it. I'm very basic right now, stumbling along. PM me if you want though and I'll make you something, it's super easy (with the cool software). The one I made is actually 3 separate images so each could link to a different report (only the TR one is active) but there is a million things you can do!

Followed you over from MEK's TR and got a start. I see a new ticker has also appeared! I too dream of someday staying at treehouse villas so I can't wait to hear how it works out for you.

What software are you using? I'm always looking for new, cool design software...

Hi and welcome! well, to call it a ticker might be pushing it but it's a tentative plan if nothing else! We are all agreed though on the treehouses! Now, to figure out when! Most likely mid august, possibly late.

How early, is too early, to start a hypothetical trip report?

Hi and welcome!

I wouldn't call it new.....I have the full Adobe Creative suite so am using Illustrator and Photoshop. New (er) to me simply as I have a bit more experience with In Design and Photoshop but Illustrator really does more for certain things than PS does (not that you'll see it in those siggies other than Belle's stained glass window border thing) and In Design is a print product.

Fun to see what one can do in each though and figure out the nuances. Which is good since I'm basically clueless but love trying to figure stuff out and figured it really would be pathetic if I don't do our own T's for the next trip. That's the playing part!

Gorillas and Gazelles, the Pagani Trail

After my amazing photographers marveled at their shots we headed...

to Pagani!

First, more monkeys. After the safari and Savannah, I hated looking through the cages but love these guys anyways!







this guy


a few fish and (the fowl came out fuzzy!)







and of course, a hippo!



we were mesmerized by these guys















so cute!




Finally, the big guys

except he looks pretty tame


him, not so much, even if it is his backside!



there he is (though a bit blurry )







Full of animals and hotter than blazes we hooked up with the rest of the crew who had just finished THEIR safari and "oohed and ahhed" appropriately over the Lion pictures.

First on the agenda a snack! and then...

A run in with a Rapid, a Yeti, and yet another Dinosaur!

I did NOT know that gazelles stood on their hind legs to eat! They're much more giraffe like than I thought. Very cool pictures.

It sounds like you have some excitement coming up.

I would be the wrong person to ask!! My ticker is just really just imaginary so far. I have every hope to make a spring trip with other Dis friends BUT nobody has made any real plans yet, it's all hypothetical at this point! (And has been in the works for about 8 months now!) In the meantime, we are having a great time making our wish lists of what we want to do

Thanks! I got really carried away with the gazelles (well between me, Goofy and Tink lol), that's only maybe half of the shots we took (although the better half).

and thanks on the siggie

I had no idea either! At first we were like

WHOA!!!!! what is that guy doing. And then we realized. And then the other one did it. It was a trip!

I hear you. This trip was in the works for a good 2 years with plotting, planning and rescheduling but wasn't firm until 3 months before the trip and "really" firm until 45 days! But the plotting and planning for next one is party of what gets us through and is a lot of fun! Or a bit OCD, I'm not sure. A hypothetical ADR list that's been revised several times already for a hypothetical trip over a year away is perhaps a bit....
