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.

Spiceguy - I think it’s true. The hats that were worn by those in the photos were the BB hotshots logo. I’m gutted. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many of our hotshots and they’re amazing. This is a loss of a family member. This hits a little different when it’s one of ours. I don’t know what to say. I’m gutted for everyone. I’ll refrain from posting the name/ information on here in case others have not been notified yet. May he Rest In Peace as an absolute hero. And I hope we can come together as a community to support his family and our hotshots.

Sugarplum, as I recall from last year, some people who switched to CA Fair Plan, were having their own properties, and properties of their neighbors inspected. Several were told of corrections they AND their neighbors needed to make, in order to make their properties more fire safe. I asked my broker about that. She said it does happen.

So, having insurance inspectors come by might be legitimate.

Outside Investigation in Sugarloaf (5:16 PM) R/P reports tpo much lighter fluid om a BBQ. Then calls back and says they are BBQ'ing meat with too much fat....Uh, Ca;; me naive but this seems to be a waste of Law Enforcement resources

Cool Wingnut! I was just wishing but that is exactly what I was hoping for! It would be awesome to have them based here during Wildland Season. What a great resource at our doorstep!
