Event Description

Young's Market in T'Ville will be celebrating the 100th year of operation of their National Cash Register.  "The little old lady of Taylorsville street"  Very nearby is a lovely well-maintained campground with hot showers, nice facilites, on the river.  Grassy sites lots of room.  Resident deer and Turkey and raccoons I suppose.  I visited Philip Hyde's son David there in T'ville in October and did some serious leaf-peeping.  Relatively close to the world famous Williams Loop on the Feather River Route, for those in training. 

Local Historian "Bronco" volunteered some raconteuring. 

David Hyde might do a tour of "Rough Rock" his home and the center of operations for his Photographer father Philip Hyde and now David.  Web search for Philip Hyde is worthwhile.  He was the most published photographer in the Sierra Club Exhibit Format "Battle Books" of the 60s and 70s.   His work has the stuff of mastery and magic.

Dogs are friendly in T'ville. Barn Quilts abound.   Pesky Moskies are gone by Octobrrr.  Excellent coffee at the store.

Chili may be cooked without permission.

Sierra Hot Springs

If you want to take the long way home (Highway 89 to 80), perhaps a stop at some hot springs would be in order. Sierra Hot Springs are in Sierraville at the junction of 49 & 89.

G'morning y'all.  Spoke with the campground mom just now.  You need not make your own reservations.  The site price is 14usd/van/day and we have eight sites reserved thus far.  Barb the campmom said it would be easier if we need more than eight sites to have me call her rather than fielding calls from several folks.   This is a low tech, personal service sort of management team that is excited about having VW Campers at the campground.    However the low tech part means that they don't always respond to messages left on their phone immediately.  Hence the delay in posting the latest and greatest.    So if you haven't signed up and you're going to attend please sign up or let me know.  <CR>

MOTSS... we have 5 confirmed and 5 tentative campers.   Let me know if we actually have 10 coming so I can stretch the string to the tin can in T'Ville and make the arrangements.   <CR>

I have it on good authority that the official birthday party is 1 to 5 pm on Saturday.  So keep that in mind and let me know if your attending by poking the rsvp thingy at the top of the page.
