FEBRUARY 23, 2017 NEWSLETTER
Dear Customers and Good Friends,
It's hard to know where to begin!  Last September, a customer in Melbourne Australia bought our two cave bear 40,000 year old skeletons from Romania that have graced our home for 9 years.  We flew there October 11th to put them back together for him after they arrived.  Then we continued to travel on one-way airline tickets or driving, all around Australia, also to Tasmania, Bruny Island, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, Oahu, then back to Los Angeles.  We flew to Texas to meet with a friend there, to buy mammoth ivory scraps.  
Glenn decided 22 airline flights was enough, so we kept the rental car and drove the rest of the way home, stopping in Louisiana to buy more big gator heads & teeth, feet, and scutes.  So we arrived home with a full car, and had shipped home about 65 boxes of mostly inventory along the way.  It was like Christmas opening up all of the boxes of stuff we had bought.  We are in a frenzy of processing the inventory to get it all on the website for you to see and enjoy.  
Once that is completed, Heidi will begin posting the photos of the trip.  We estimate we took over 8000 photos on the trip and some videos.
Highlights:
AUSTRALIA: Staying in the customer's private apartment in Melbourne with a gourmet food court across the street (yum!)
Taking a helicopter flight over the 12 Apostles (Great Ocean Road) south of Melbourne
Going out to the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns
Going to the Sydney Opera House to see My Fair Lady
Getting to hold two different koalas at a sanctuary in Brisbane.
Getting to see white kangaroos and quokkas (cute!) in a sanctuary in Adelaide.
Seeing herds of kangaroo and emu in the wild (between Melbourne and Sydney, and near Adelaide)
Going to Coober Pedy and getting a personalized tour of the opal mines by a miner; eating and sleeping underground, even visiting the only UNDERGROUND Greek Orthodox Church
Going on a Great white shark cage dive (Port Lincoln, Aus-
tralia)
Visiting Kings Park on a bluff high above Perth, Australia.  Perth turned out, surprisingly, to be our favorite city.
TASMANIA - Getting to see Tasmanian Devils feeding at a sanctuary, and pet a wombat, and see many kangaroos feeding.
Seeing hundreds of blue penguins migrating back to their burrows after feeding in the ocean.
Staying in the customer's penthouse
 one night on the waterfront in Hobart, and going to the famous Saturday market there the next morning.
BRUNY ISLAND: Taking a boat trip to see the cliffs and sea lions and cormorants that look like penguins
NEW ZEALAND: Seeing the largest Kauri tree in New Zealand (named Tane Mahuta), too large to fit in a single photo.  Kauri trees are shorter than our Redwood trees, but a huge girth all the way up:
