    Flatiron - did I see you there? Our group had a great time, too! I'll be posting pictures on my July website once I get a chance - we just got home Sunday. I learned how to be a lumberjack while I was there

    Cecile.......Yes, I was there and probably watched you take a slice off that log. Did you have Mark sign your log round for you? .............

    Should have said hi! I would have enjoyed meeting you! No I didn't have anyone sign my slice of log - I should have. My friend Carmen had Auggie Hess sign hers, though. That was cool. I'm going to use mine as a picture frame for the pic of me and Marty sawing together.

    We'll be posting pictures of the event and all the rest of the fun things my group did that week on my website as soon as my husband gets a chance. We just got back Sunday.

    We're looking forward to The Friends of Bodie Aug. 12th for our next historical event.

    Thanks! Cecile,for the breath of fresh air. In resonce to a few messages that we recieved lately we wanted to let everyone know that we are still around. Sheila and I have not check in lately only because we just got bored with some of the post's about unrelated ghost town subjects, so we took a break. We are sure that we are not the only ghosttowners that feel that way. We would love to see this web-site return to it's former self.

    Cecile,

    did you happen to see Norm Dechambeau when you were up last? I miss my old friend and am planning on a visit soon. A stop at the Mono Basin Historic Society is in order.

    Yes, I saw Norm. In fact I spent a bit of time talking with him. He was also persuaded to tell a little bit of his own family history for the Mono Mills event.

    Believe me, I know what ya mean. And, as repeat offender, I apologize to y'all and the other gt'ers that are bored with the "unrelated posts". If you remember the old board beginning 1998, flaming was very common back then, and as you know, this board was born as a result.

    So far I'd have to say this board is oceans better than the old one, as far as courtesy, respect, etc.,
    But here's part of the problem as I see it. There's no moderator to control spammers, and mostly youngsters lookin' for paranormal thrills. And some days very few folks if any, post legit gt related subjects or questions. So, speaking for myself, and since I have no life right now, I, and a few others report the spammers, and subsequently poke fun at the spook seekers. I do often forget what category I'm in, and post replies that should be in the "other" topics. I'm trying to concentrate on correcting this error however.

    Ideally, as someone here said a while back, with a moderator, there would probably be no need for the "other" category.
    I hope you and the others will stick around, and not be dissuaded by the unrelated posts.
    Hopefully, y'all will just steer away from the "other" category, until a moderator can take this board back closer to it's main purpose.
    bob.
