Nowadays all the hilltop kite fliers wear helmets. It's backlash from the Jack and Jill fiasco.

The clock struck one on the way down the hill, Mouse ran down, found zClown had broken his crown, and Lynne came free-soloing after.

Here's a good look at some of the early work of Francis Cabon, pioneer sausage and Canadian Bacon entrepreneur. Much in the same vein as Harvey West.

OK, there's an official Stormin' Norman thread going on. Good.

I checked in on a the TR by Mr. Luke Mehall on the Salathe Wall.

There was mention of a pink tri-cam.

This caught my pink mouse eye. Royal Blue Blurt, Alert!

Cool pink cam stuff. TR.

RIP Henry Hull. I find it strange that he seems to have disappeared right around the time that plane went down. I wonder if ric (don't call me Ricknie) knows.

Re: 1977 Yosemite Plane Crash
by TimDude2000 » Sun Nov 28, 2010 7:23 pm
This thread was started on Mon May 30, 2005. 5 plus years ago. I have started a new thread entitled yosemite plane crash of 76 and recovery operations under the California message forum. I am fascinated reading through all of these accounts, and believe I can pull this writting project off. I am providing a percentage of any royalties earned to people who can provide credible information, like I can tell some of the folks on this board have. I am not trying to step on toes, but like they said in Wall Street 1, Is there anything more valuable than information? especially inside information. I am willing to pay royalites to folks who have such information.

I am an attorney in Las Vegas, so I can answer questions re: statute of limitations, as well as develop an attorney client relationship with anybody who could potentially provide information. I think that there may be more information out there, but I do not believe that the story is not ready to be told. The hypothesis are there, information is there, photos seem to exist, all there for the purpose of testing hypothesis. Chapter about Dorn? How about a book about Dorn? the fact is that this story, I believe does not need real names, although that could be helpful. I do not think that unless he was personally involved in the initial or subsequent recoveries, he is relevant. A couple of hypothesis
1. Black book may exist, but unless the pilots were conspirators in the operation, why would the people behind the smuggling ring make the pilots privy to any information they did not need? Further the liklihood of paper surviving a wreakage submerged for 6 months in water seems at best unlikely. If this book does exist it is likely a pilot log, semi relevant, but not a smoking gun. I think this issue has little relevance, and may be a bit of a red herring.
2. The plane was likely flown somewhere around its mile limit of 990 miles. I also believe the flight originated in Mexico. It ran oout of gas, as there does not seem to much evidence of a burn, except by those who were in on the recovery.
Subject needs revived.

The question that everyone wants an answer to, but is too shy to ask.


Who followed Bob Dylan after his electric set at Newport?


Why Mel Lyman of course


... an unaccompanied 5 to 20 minute version of Rock of Ages which you may find on vinyl in a used record store somewhere. And during this performance was evidently when he had his epiphany...

RIP Mel Lyman dead at 40 in 1978.




The other question, who are these famous cult leaders?

These four framed prints I purchased at the Artists Co-op here. Helen Swickard is one of the leading watercolorists and lives in Atwater.

The other ladies, Mrs. Schueh, and Marian Abbott (male or female?) I don't know. Helen is pushing ninety and has been painting Yosemite a long time. Her family owned Swickard's Marina on Lake McClure from it's start.

The Multicultural Arts Building houses that exhibit and the Co-op pays rent for their downstairs gallery. there is more trouble than I care to tell aabout funding for the Arts Council and nobody will be surprised if they shut their operation down to the bare minimum. Same old story in many smalller communities.

I made sure to buy these since the gallery's only a half block from my digs and who knows how long the gallery will remain there? I've always liked Mrs. Swickard's art. She has distinct style.
