I had an idea why the cam was relocated, but I looked up Kruger's comments.

W@H & WTM were the first two musketeers, often pictured like this: Image

Bwana was the third musketeer, followed bij francoisd! The rest followed more or less after that.

Meg & Guinea Pig were the first two angels. W@H, WTM, GP & Meg started the whole Musketeer versus angel thing.

Gwennie,

I also recall it to be like that :D. I was a little further down the Musketeer ranks. Oi! These are good memories......

DQ, send our regards to the GP please.

O, and I recall I posted a picture for GP to show her proof of Springbuck in KNP :twisted: Let me go see if I still have the "proof"

Ha! We are in luck! Found it! Proof of Springbuck in KNP.

This foto was taken in Jul 2005, at the Day Visitors area near Skukuza.

I remember appologising to GP for ever doubting her. :twisted::twisted:
