You missed the Blue Chip stamp sign.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

Thanks for posting these Skyline. I love seeing all the old cars from when you could actually tell one make and model from another. More importantly, I appreciate being able to view the lake from the downtown area.

I look at the cars in the images I try to remember whose cars they were; Knick was a good player at that game. The white t-bird at the post office the black Pontiac on pineknot the new black Camaro at and the el-camino it looks to have side boards in the bed. The cars are cool some you might still see driving around the valley. You can view a lot of old images of Big Bear on ebay not many of the 60s 70s. Images I have not came across any of the fighter Jet that was at Meadow Park, the half-track that set at LH Liquor for years.

In the bottom 2 pictures of the bumper cars looks like my parents 63 Chevy pick up. Not sure when in 72 that was taken. I was born in June so if it was before I was born that could very well be my parents truck (which became mine when I turned 16.)

@CarterMCwx While the snow level was low, it wasnt excessively cold. In the mid 20s, which is actually a good cold storm for our standards. That would put it at a 15:1 ratio. Heres a general guide for ratios... [Click Here]

So to answer your question Hank, yes, they're trespassing.

Razz, we do have an issue with homeless encampments, we had probably a half dozen fires east of Bear Mountain over the summer, a couple of then could haven gotten ugly.... Seems as though we have a lot more homeless up here these days.

NSA - I'm of the same thought pattern. but I keep being reassured that the fire pros know what they are doing with the pile burning. Have to admit, while the pics I seen are disconcerting know the 'possible', there have been no incidents of one getting out of hand. Probably not the same bunch that tried to burn down Bear Mtn few year ago. Hopefully some things have been learned since then. Fingers crossed every time though

Is the golf course "officially" open or is the couple on #1 just taking advantage of the nice weather?
