Now a Holiday Inn, the hotel boasted air conditioning, electric heat, heated pool free coffee and and room phones.
Nothing too spectacular – but it should be noted that it was seven miles to Safariland. Which reminded me of Lion Country Safari in Irvine in Southern California. I remember that place well when I was a kid. You’d basically drive in with your car through areas where wild animals would roam. Visitors were always warned to keep their windows up, and yet…every once in a while some jack-ass would get mauled by a lion because they rolled the window down.
Frankly, I thought it’d been more challenging if they wrapped visitors in steak and had them walk through.
