I have been in contact with Ed of No Boundaries for this GT popping trip over a year and finally I am in Salalah, Oman now.
It was very tough to have three overseas trips in a month, but I can not complain all the trips are valuable and priceless.
This trip is for big GT over 50 kg and the Sourthern Oman is famous for it.
It took about 25 hours from JFK to Salalah, Oman and it takes another three hours by a car from Salalah to No Boundaries. But I am not really tired. I think it is because I used to long flights and I could watch many movies on the flight.
I brought only two popping rods and two jigging rods to make luggage as light as possible. I put two 8' Black Hole Cape Cod Special Nano and Graphite rods in a PVC rod case and I carried 5' Black Hole two-piece 250g and 80g in a carry-on rod case.
I was scared when I didn't see my rod case at luggage claim belt in Salalah Airport. I asked them to look for my rod case. After waiting 15 minutes someone brought my rod case. Salalah Airport is very small and it didn't take much time to go through immigration/custom process.
They checked my DVD movies one by one.
I took a free shuttle bus to Crowne Plaza Hotel which is about 4 miles from the airport. The hotel room is very clean and they are very kind and courteous. The No Boundaires are three hours away by a car and taxi will be here by 10:00 am.
6 days fishing starts from tomorrow (March 23).
