WOW! Things have changed so much! From the outfits, to the styles to even the pictures themselves. I've never seen these pics before.

Tom, can you read the number on the truck? It is there on the right side in a circle above the fender and below and left to the loudhaler on the hoot. It looks to be the African Plains? Can you enlarge the photo, I might be able to ID the Wardens if I could see better? Thanks.

The fellow to the far right looks like Lenard DeNalt? The truck also does not have a pushbumper that many of us had on our trucks. Leonard was a supervisor of the last predator sections so it could be the sheep and goat section, in between Siberian Tigers and Baboons?

You can't read the number even when it is enlarged. The original isn't the best because it is from a newspaper.

Interesting to see they had free food on opening day and it took an hour to get the food. It's amazing how long people will wait for free stuff though I guess if you were in the park, you didn't have an option not to wait if you were hungry.
