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.

Thanks so much for the welcome, Skyline! I am trying to read every post, because everyone's thoughts and memories are so very interesting...

Love those barkless pines...so much "experience."

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.

if they raised it by more than ten percent i believe the state calls it price gouging

Stater looking better but still no paper products, flour, rubbing alcohol and now dish soap. What we obviously have now is a whole new price structure and shame on Stater Corporate for this disguised price gouging. 18ct med eggs now 5$, unsalted butter 6$. WTH??

I haven’t seen butterflies 🦋 in Running Springs. No
Hummingbirds either.
Seems my Bluejays that always came together for years lost a loved one-flying solo now. 😢

Kenai! It was my pleasure! Paula’s boss knew your son so I was happy they could track him down. It’s the least I could do for our hospital workers. Have a nice day.

We only get a smattering of painted ladies, the monarchs tho, will soon be in full force. I tend to see butterflies flying North'ish. For lack of trees here, a hummingbird is a rare sight. Feeder outside kitchen window? Nice sunbow around sun & shorts weather!

I was wondering about rufous hummingbirds in that they happen to be showing up around here. I should get the feeder back out.
