The Packing Begins


The challenge: pack almost 50 VHF collars in checked luggage along with all our personal items, staying under the required weight (50 lbs), and not getting arrested because we appear to be smuggling expensive items into the country to be sold!  The line of collars in the far back are for wild dog and cheetah, the middle row collars for lions and hyenas, the front collars for wildebeest.

Many already know, but for those who don't, I successfully completed my Master's degree at Montana State University (what a relief!), and have accepted a position with the Zambian Carnivore Programme, where I'll be stationed in Kafue National Park studying most of the animals that are capable of eating me. I'm leaving May 19th, and will be in Zambia for approximately 7 months, returning in December-ish (with a quick return in Aug for my roommates', Aaron and Amber's, wedding!).

Stay tuned for more....

  4. Although moving boxes are the most essential items you will need when you are moving, there are other packing supplies which are often forgotten in the hurly-burly of planning your move.
