    I\'m Baaaack!

    All rested up and feeling good. 10 days in the mountains can do that to ya. Couple of pics.

    Janie's Ranch Property (arial view from a hill) that we are thinking of buying. Used to be a bordello. Just on the other side of the Nevada border on hwy 6. This is what Bubba was talking about when he said there were some good mountains and wheeling in the area. How about right across the street? /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Keough Hot Springs was my daily bathing spot.

    OOOPS!

    After getting up there and shaking and ratteling all the way I checked the tires. One was so badly out of balance it couldn't be fixed and another had a huge nail in the side. So I got new shoes....

    Re: I\'m Baaaack!

    The temps were absolutely great! Upper 80s during the day and about 60 at night. Just perfect!

    Bubba the Blazer with the half doors was still there when I went up there, but it was gone on my way back. I was going to stop if it was still there on the way back. Thought I'd take a picture but it wasn't there.

    That top pic was taken from the hills behind Janie's and where I'm standing is about where the water comes from out of some springs. I needed to get a pic of the runway.

    Ten days of bliss....

    Re: I\'m Baaaack!

    Fumes, The party here or the party at Janie's? I need to make one more trip up there to meet with my partners in crime. They are all going to fly up in thier own planes and will meet me at Bishop airport. Then we all drive out to the property. If they want I can take them on a little wheeling trip around the area. My truck belts in five. Then if they all like it, we will have one hell of a party once I get the power turned on and the water running again. First thing they will want me to do is get the runway paved... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Re: I\'m Baaaack!

    Ramjet, if you look at the first picture, the dirt road that says Buena Vista Mining Entrance leads to the Boundary Peak Wilderness. It's about an 8 hour ride over the top to Fishlake Nevada. Mild 4wd but very interesting. Lots of old mines and an old mining camp. Pics of the trail and mines.

    I don't know if I still have pics of that K5 and I probably lost the info, it was pretty cheap considering it was built.

    Party/Slash wheeling and with the airstrip, Da 'Fumes can fly in with his 747 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: I\'m Baaaack!

    I don't know about the 747 because it's only a 3000 foot runway. We will hope to expand it by another 1000 feet. A DC3 would do nicely though. And one of the partners has 3 of them. We have been tossing around the idea of having a "Mile High Charter". A plane with a bed that people could rent for an hour. Do it in the air.... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Re: I\'m Baaaack!

    Don't worry, Fumes was able to land it at Hollister, heck he was even seen wheeling it through the hills so I think he could probably just put that puppy down on the highway with no problem. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Very nice. The old mines fascinate me. I love exploring abandoned stuff (railroads, buildings, mines).

    If you get the stuff you want going there, that is gonna one sweet resort.

    Don't know what happened. I got on yesterday morning without any problems, then it started goofing up around noon and then when I called it a day at about 3, it wouldn't come up period for the rest of the day.
