When I drove up Highway One Wednesday to see my friend Louie in Mendocino county, I stopped for coffee at a cafe in Bodega Bay. I saw this truck with poisonality and when I went into the cafe, I asked the young guy sitting there if it was his. Yes it was. He was Stuart Brown, and he had replaced the independent front suspension with a straight axle and was welding bars on it (more to come) so it could bounce of things out in the woods. We hit it off and it turned out he knew who I was and had a copy of Builders of the Pacific Coast. It's wonderful to be running into these 20-30-year-olds these days who are into the same things we were 40 years ago (and still are).
