fun on the omo

You'll have a great time, it's a pretty amazing stretch and Ethiopia is a beautiful country. Is this PV's trip? If you need anything/beta let me know, I've run it a number of times and have some good friends in country.

Eddie Thanks for the reply. Yes it is PV's trip we have been boating and c limbing together the last 15 years. This will however only be my 2nd International trip with him. Would love to buy you a beverage and pick your brain. I would imagine we have many mutual freinds.

Gunshow. heading East for 10 days tonight(no boating) will call when I get back.

gh Hippo's, Crocs and AK 47 weilding locals could make one nostalgic for Lions, Tigers and Bears . sj
