Thanks, Skyline, for straightening me out on my mistake on Godwin's...Ha! We all had it wrong! What a bunch of dumb kids we were!!!

On the Mustang, by Orange do you mean the early 70's Gold?

like this...
Yes, indeed, we used Summit quite a bit, especially going uphill toward the slopes...Moonridge straight to, but not as much as Summit and Hwy 38 out east.

You may recall that Rich Vickers and Jeff Woodruff (friends of mine) lived on west side of Summit next to the Taylor girls...they were a "base" of sorts, and a place to run in to avoid the SO.

Lastly, if you remember my Stang, you may remember Jimmy's Red '70 Formula 400, Jack Bailey's Red '68 427 Camaro, and Pat Bieber's Gold '70 Nova SS...this was the heart of the group...we all had our cars photographed by the SO and they had them posted at the station when it was back of the Knickerbocker tree behind the FD...

Warren...remembering '73-'74

Kind Regards,
Warren

The 70s Weekend nights, up Pineknot then right at Halls, Elks lodge Turn around repeat. Welcome Warren the site has a couple seasoned Big Bear locals on here, Dennis Knickerbocer was a big contributor with old photos of the Valley and memories; he was lot of fun. The history section is fun; the site has worked well during fires when trying to acquire information. The car magnet tree I remember was the one with the bark knocked off was out front of Dongos.

My dad used to tell stories about driving the movie reels from Blue Jay to Big Bear when he was a teen, especially in the winter. Wish I could remember the details to share! What I remember is many hair raising slides and corners!

That wasn't across Snow Slide Road, was it?
(I don't remember what year they completed the Arctic Circle.)

It was only two lanes at the time he drove it. Rarely and barely plowed.

Also, for the most part (in my past experience) the depth of the lake doesn't drop too deep too fast -- i.e. , my dog can usually Wade out 20 or so feet before he needs to swim, so there's plenty of play space to get your dog acclimated to the conditions if s/he is new to swimming

Theres a number of spots I take my dogs to along the North shore (between the boat ramp and juniper point, and over by the solar observatory, and even the around the west boat ramp). Which one I go to depends on how crowded places may be (I don't intrude if people are fishing) and the time/effort it takes to get some where if I'm short on time

The parking lot at Juniper Point is still closed. Some street parking is available when the crowds aren't in town

Dizzygal. I always take my Golden to the lake at Juniper Point on the North shore. Haven’t been there since this virus thing started, so I don’t know if the parking lot is open. If it is, you need a Forest Adventure Pass to park there.
