Thanks for the vote of confidence - I never could figure out why so many on here focus on posters and lose what should be the focus:

What the hell is this nine-year thread, who is it benefitting, where is it going and when will it get there?

My posts, or lack of same should not bother you or anyone else - nor should anyone else's. and why care about grammar, spelling, etc. on an internet thread? Focus on Licky and get him to put up or shut up - oh, and he should stop assuming details about people that he doesn't like and then libeling and slandering them as well. Can't we all just get along? You want a truce, I'll start. Truce. It's spring and I have Frisbees to throw. Later.

But, Mouse, people are still writing books about Napoleon, or Biggie Small.

It sure would be interesting to know how that cash flow helped the fortunate few in their life endeavors.
Who parlayed it into riches and who wasted their opportunity to make something bigger. Seems there is a lot of paranoia over something which happened just after the dinosaurs died off. I doubt any law officials really care, lets hear the cast of characters. Fictional or not, put your pen to paper and tell us a tale.

I understand Chouinard used the money to start Great Pacific Ironworks.

Rumor was Neil McDonald had an illegitimate son years well before he became one of MCA’s many goons.

Was it you Sidmo.

Sidmo had no intention of helping Licky with his book, all his attention from the start was finding and passing on information.

Were you there when McDonald dumped toxic materials down the Merced River.
He thought no one would be looking.

Walleye: Year on slides Oct “77,

Neil baby was not happy when he saw what I was doing. Demanded me to give or take film out of my camera. Words since it was so long ago went like this but not quoted: [Me]: “Say again, I don’t think I heard you right” [Neil]: You are on Government Property give it to me now. [Me] Laughing: “F&ck you”. I still continue taking photos. He flags down Ranger, he gets out of car and Neil says to the ranger demanding that I give him the film or else.

The ranger just looks at him and says: Yes, he’s on Government propety and can take any photos he wants to so what’s your problem? Neil walks off.

Edit: photo corrected

I hear it was common for the garage to dump oil directly into Indian Creek until some time in the 70's. Hopefully they have a containment system for the soap and road grime that are concentrated there.

LIS, You should talk to this guy. I don't think you live that far away from him.

Hey Timid, remember how me and Mikey had a photo of Ed on our yellow refrigerator in our dorm room at Tecoya? Written on it was: "LETS EAT!"

Edit: Thanks LIS.. That period of 77-87 were some very intersting times in the Valley from a drug standpoint.. And not that it really matters but I believe your photo is reversed (the second one, that is)

Good times with Mike (RIP, old friend).

Pretty sure Hard Eddy lives near 120 west entrance. Probably pretty scorched there.
Hey Walley, Does Hardy still live there -abouts?

My photo of him was when he spoke at Nic's memorial at Curry V Dec 2009. Last I saw him and Tiny among many others.

I think Ric and I addressed this before, or was it Sidmo and I, anyway there was not an awful lot of money at stake in terms of drug dealing.

And .. who cleaned up the Lower Merced Psss Lake? Did any of those who profited from the weed participate in the clean up.

Put it in addendum to the book which as I wirte, I'm sure has already gone to press.

Isn't it funnny how "one fell swoop" used to mean a dastardly deed, yet now just means getting something all done at once. Like collecting free weed and cleaning up the oil after.


This is kind of a follow on to the post of my good friend mouse above.

What if Ric decided not to publish his book and this thread just (really) disappeared like the Paul Ryan thread a while back?

Would anybody be affected in any significant way?


Does anyone remember the name of the cop killed up at Lake Arrowhead? Or his dog?

Good point, does anyone remember the name of the second in charge of Hannable's charge over the Alps? Of course not. Who gives a rats ass about the details? Its the stories that make the event. Just as long as the stories are true and have been researched.

Then again sidmo doesn't want truth, he only wants text. Sidmo..maybe TMZ is where you ought to be...ya think?

It's Hannibal. Do better research. The name means "Grace of Ba'al"

And that's easy. His brother Hazdrubal.

( not to be confused with his uncle Hazdrubal)

He was killed in Northern Italy trying to reinforce Hannibal's forces.

And his story is a lot more interesting than endless posts on a vaporbook.

Its the stories that make the event.

So go ahead and tell it. Mind you, I'm not in a hurry, there is so much in the world that I haven't read that I can always find something when my eyes are not too tired, but I was kind of looking forward to reading this story. Why you ask? It beats the sheeit outa me, except that I stumbled in here a few years back.

OK. So does anyone remember the story of the cop who got killed up in Arrowhead. I doubt it.

His name wasn't Hannabull nor Hanna Arendt, nor hantavirus, but rather

Christ(opher) Dorner. Don't confuse with Donner, that's another story.

Sidmo, for someone that keeps claiming they don't care enough to care etc, you sure do a lot of posting. Month after month, year after year you bump this thread. Never seem to realize that if you just stopped posting, this would go into the woodpile with all the other dead threads.

You obviously have some mental health issues, that's the only reason for someone to keep obsessing and attacking a person for such an extended length of time. Get some help.

Sidmo is clearly just a sad old dick who ain't got a life. Grow the f*ck up.
