Dallas Safari Club

Yesterday at the annual Dallas Safari Club convention we run into Gen. Charles M. Duke while we’re talking about Capetown with some friends.

What do you do when you bump into a genuine US Astronaut?

Ask for a photo, shake his hand and thank both him and his wife for their service (those of us who go and do know we cannot go and do if our mates don’t sometimes stay and do while we’re gone – thanks Leta).

Gen. Duke was CapCom in Apollo 11 & made it to the moon himself on Apollo 16. The moon is 238,900 miles away, that’s 477,800 round trip (makes my longest American Airlines trips seem like nothing LOL).
