    It's been a while. I've just been reviewing this article, and reminiscing. Those were the days. Man, do I miss them.

    Feeling nostalgic today, and missing the joy of the ride. Hello to all my Pashnit friends. I think of you often!

    Jim, time to buy a bike and hit the road! I went back to page 1 of this thread and read your ride report. You really captured the sense of adventure we get when we tour. I too enjoyed riding the 96... meeting the locals at the Seiad General Store and hearing their plans to secede from the union was a highlight! And I met these guys...

    What if I told you... slower traffic use turnouts actually means slower traffic use turnouts.

    We don't get many big foot sightings down here in San Diego, but we do occasionally get a glimpse of the albino yeti...

    I just missed Big Foot last fall, we rode from Willets to Ft. Bragg early one Sunday morning about 6:30 A.M.,,,,, I learned the definition of ethereal. You could feel the big critter watching you through the shadows of the forest.
    This thread has some absolutely stunning photos, good on ya Jim.

    Jim I don't know why I didn't reply to this post before, but glad to do so now. I have read it many times and enjoyed it more each time. I am pretty sure that we talked about your adventure on one of the times you rode with the Oldfarts. Almost every place you traveled on this ride was a visit to some of the roads I covered while hauling either logs or lumber many years back. Leaving Hayfork and passing Peanut was like a freeway for me. At that creek in Peanut was where I took quick baths at times when I was round tripping loads from our sawmill in Madriver to Redding. Leaving Peanut at that time was 47 miles of dirt roads mainly one way to our mill in Madriver. And your pictures at the beautiful little mill town of Scotia where Hugh worked is one I love to visit. I had a cousin Jimmy Blagg that worked at that mill back in the 50ts and lived in the town across the river in Rio Dell. In 1955 when they had all the floods in California I was hauling loads from our mill in Madriver past Dinsmore out as fast as possible to salvage them from going down the river. Hoopa was another mill I hauled boards from, Burnt Ranch, Weaverville where you took the pictures of all the logs was a place I visited many times to visit Larry Williams and his family. His father was the sawyer at that mill in the 1950ts. I could go on for hours but will stop now. I remember you well Jim and the last time I saw you was at the Kaiser hospital in Sacramento and met your mother while visiting you. A few days later your wife and children gave us a very good reception of food and drink after the Cooper ride. I met lots of Pashnit riders that day and will always remember how nice your family treated us that day. Papa-Ken....Kenneth Kinder.
    Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.........Will Rogers
