    My brother.

    You are in South Africa in 2021. Nobody can answer that question with any degree of surity. How long is a piece of string ?

    In 1992 it took 2 weeks. I was part of that club. Things worked then.

    Today? Who knows?

    Good luck brother. Hope it doesn't take toooo looong.

    Peace out .. Derek.

    Will keep track and if I do get it will inform how long it took.
