    ... famous for having free roaming buffalo herds. After lunch we drove round the wildlife loop and saw lots of them. For safety you can't get out where they are as they will stampede if alarmed.

What I enjoyed hearing about was Korczak Ziolkowski and his unbelievable resilience to take the project on and for a long time doing most of the work by himself!

    ... and picked one up, then swung by to get a couple of things out of the truck before I left. When I told the mechanic I just needed to grab a bag, he said ok, but he would have the truck done in 20 minutes!
