and by the time i arrived at her
private property i was infected

Cheers!

This little dump is just a few hundred meters down the hill from my place, great place to get stabbed.

I think Mighty Hiker used to let the fists fly there too BITD :-)

The old Trav's tavern in Glenn Echo, Md, just down the road from Carderock.



Haunt of Climbers, Olympic Kayakers, biker dudes, and poets. Some just came for the fights. I almost got my assed kicked by some biker's girlfriend when I tried to keep two of the bikers under control as they drunkenly wrestled at my feet.

"my bad, carry on..."

Trav sold out in the 80's and retired to Boca Raton and the new owners went upscale. They sold out and moved next to Trav and now it is an Irish pub, I'm told.

There is hope.

Toast: " may you live in interesting times"

Many good times over many years at the Strawberry Lodge as depicted by our beloved Weege.

I had a roommate in Santa Cruz back in the '80s that was a surfer/ski bum that worked as a waiter at Strawberry on and off for years. He went by the moniker Spike and was like a Peter Pan dude that kept the dream alive. Long boards at Steamer"s Lane, waited tables with my yet to be wife. The sound system and record collection he had made some legendary parties, right across the street from the Grog Shop. The Hubbard Hyatt.

Alas & alack! I don't have any local public house photos, since I'm not used to photographing those scenes. I do have a photo of Hedi & me in one of Choss Creek's two watering holes, a few years back.

However for an exterior shot! I do have a photo of the Fairview Inn, the social center of Talkeetna, AK from back in 1976, when we spent a few days there waiting for decent weather to fly into the Hayes Range with Cliff Hudson. A pleasant spot to mingle with the locals and other climbers. Got to know Michael Covington, who was doing the same.

Then I was curious as to how the Fairview might have changed in the last 38 years, so I checked it out on Google Images. A windsox has been added to the top, and a historical sign to the front.

A pub from my youth just celebrated its 100th anniversary a couple years ago.

Finnegan's in. Huntington Ny.



Here it is from the 1920's



Same tin ceiling and walls.. same bar... They just added some tables and chairs.

They are famous for a mural on the outside of the building painted in the 1970's and just restored which had all the locals then on it. Here is a piece of it.




That's old man Finnegan still holding court then, and the fellow in the straw boater with his own can of chips is my brother's father in law. I knew most of the other folks. I was a way at college, so I didn't make the cut. Here's the fellow who painted the original for free and restored it 40 years later. He's quite famous now.



I buried my mother in the old hometown and afterwards we stopped in. The fellow behind the bar was on my football team with me.
