Default An Upper Class Hunting Camp

Now this particular camp we're visiting on Friday is obviously across the ocean. It is so clean and neat that I think you'd have to dress for dinner. It doesn't look very temporary unless these type of structures can be thrown up fast.

I can imagine rising around 8 a.m., a light breakfast, looking over my brace of double rifles, climbing into the Land Rover and motoring out to wherever my trackers thought there might be something worth shooting.

If I haven't shot anything by noon, the Land Rover would appear with a large woven basket replete with cold meats, fruits, a sparkling beverage and napkins.

As it is I have to settle for a cheese sammich, a plastic baggy with some corn chips and a 7-UP... more often it's creek water.

After taking my Cape Buffalo, I leave the dressing out to my PH and motor back for a shower and a truly succulent meal by the chef on duty. Around here I have to settle for the bisquits (if any) left over from breakfast.

So... I reckon it will always be just passing by these type camps since I much prefer the campfire, the hot coffee on the flat rock and just the right amount of wood ash on my bisquits.

Cold and a skiff of snow in the Valley of the Clark's Fork this morning. Woodwork to do today so I'd better keep moving along. As the years wear on, I have a tendency to fall asleep in my chair if I hesitate.
