    Wow Brian, that picture is a blast from the past!
    Ralph & I are glad to hear things are going well with you. Hopefully now that your sleep apnea is coming under control, you'll begin to feel even better. By the way, the invitation is always open for you to come back up here and do some exploring with us.

    It's so good to read the updates on everyone.

    Has anyone heard from Old Judge or Johnnie & Sheila?

    I may be an older timer than most of you...since I first frequented this forum in the late 1990's. I lurk once in awhile, and make a post about once a year. No longer do commercial tours to ghosttowns thanks to the economy, but now have more time to research and write. My website is going strong with loyal readers, and I'm ever vigilant about keeping it up each month. I spent the summers of 2009 and 2010 living and working in Bodie and am active with the Bodie Foundation, volunteering up there when I can, and helping from afar when I can't be up there. I am a part time caretaker up at Cerro Gordo and spent a great deal of time up there this past summer, watching the town, giving tours and history talks to anyone who wanders up there, and getting a tremendous amount of research done.

    I also spoke at the Death Valley History Conference for the second time, and debuted my first book at the conference... Cerro Gordo Ghost Town Caught Between Centuries. I self-published the first printing of 100 books which went over well. The Historical Society of the Upper Mojave Desert in Ridgecrest is publishing the second printing and it should be out soon. I'm also working on a Cerro Gordo Images of America book by Arcadia Publishing which will plan to have out in October of 2012 in time for the Lone Pine Film Festival.

    Other than that...I don't get out to do the other areas like I used to, except the Western Mojave area once or twice a year. This summer I'll plan to be up at Cerro Gordo two weeks out of every month to help caretake and in Bodie at least for a week in August. Other than that and working hard on the books and other writing projects, I find most of my computer time is spent on Facebook, with an occassional drop by some of my old forums and that's about it. I dabble a little bit in local history in my little town here in Los Angeles, and on occassion write for a little throw away paper on local history. Researching and writing and babysitting ghosttowns seems to be my life nowadays.

    If you are speaking of Cecile's post, Cerro Gordo is west of Death Valley and Bodie is well ... Bodie!

    The mine in the photos is definitely not in Cerro Gordo. It appears to be the Billy Mine near Ryan.

    Cerro Gordo in April is kind of dicey. The road may or may not have been bladed by then, and the presence of ice and deep snow is a definite possibility, especially early in the month.
