thanks for the welcome gents!

i hope to make a routine outta this at some point. i'll have to get some tips from you patrick. i'm sure there's a way to build a good pattern.

i really like the theme you guys tend to other words, stay on one subject for a few days. i'll try to start scanning with that in mind. so few of my slides are scanned.

that said, i'm going to post a slide that has absolutely nothing to do with george mcginnis...unless he likes buffalo.

i had dinner last nite at the 'saddle peak lodge' in the topanga canyon/calabassas hills area yesterday. i highly recommend to any disneyland fan as its an old hunting lodge converted to a restaurant. feels VERY frontierland! they specialize in game meats and i had a pile of buffalo which reminded me of this slide!

now, how cool was disneyland? a live buffalo display right in the center of frontierland! think of huge the effect on little davy crockett would-be was to see an actual, live buffalo just a few feet from some actual, live injuns? in the early years, disneyland took great lengths to encapsulate what one would experience in a cross-counrty/roadside america tourist trip for each land.

with this in mind, i'll start searching for rare shots of frontierland which had all kinds of surprises back in the day!

thanks again for the welcome!!
