Old Defender 130 sited in Rwanda - Volcano Gorillas

So I was in Rwanda last year and saw this old defender sitting in front of the Hotel Rwanda (the real one) which is now named Hotel Des Mille Collines. Anyway - this was a really neat find b/c I've never seen one like this AND not sure if it's even a 130 or another mod.

I also heard from our safari driver that you can "rent" 5 armed guys on the Congo/Rwanda boarder for $10. They will then act as security for you all the way into the Congo to view the Volcano's and Gorillas that are there. That would be an adventure for sure! I doubt it was these guys but reminded me of the story.

Funny you ask! I was with Dave on that trip. I'm pretty sure he was behind me as I was taking that pic!

Good to have another Saddleback/Rover owner in the mix. Dave is an old friend of mine from early 1990's. I think I remember he posted a photo of that Rover on Facebook! I have a front pocket case in tobacco.
