Eight BHM writers, editors, artists will be at the Colorado Springs Self-Reliance Show

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

The Colorado Springs Self-Reliance Show May 18-19 is starting to look like a Backwoods Home Magazine writers get-together. It was already shaping up to be one of the biggest gatherings of BHM writers and artists ever with the appearance of me, Don Childers, Jackie Clay, Patrice Lewis, and Amy Alton. A few days ago, Jeff Yago, who writes on energy and preparedness topics, said he plans to fly into the show from Virginia. Today Annie Tuttle, BHM’s managing editor, decided she would also attend, along with Sam Duffy, editor of BHM’s Kindle Edition.

Road over Cape Sebastian takes a tumble

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

The rain has stopped (for one day, the weather forecast says) but the roads keep falling away. My youngest son, Sam, sent me the above photo. It’s Hwy 101 going over Cape Sebastian between Pistol River and Gold Beach. I don’t know who took the photo.

Below is Hwy 101 just north of Gold Beach yesterday. It’s now open to one-lane of traffic. It came from the World newspaper’s online version.

Slides strand Jake and Robby in Gold Beach

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

We’ve been having a lot of rain here in the Gold Beach and Brookings, Oregon, area, with rivers at or near flood stage and many slides and avalanches occurring. My two oldest sons, Jake and Robby, tried to drive back to college today (Portland State and Oregon State University) by heading down our road, Carpenterville Road, and onto Hwy 101 to begin their 5-hour trip. They got about two miles before encountering an impassable slide, then tried the other direction and got blocked by another. So they’ll stay home another day. It’s just as well they encountered a road blockage quickly so they are stranded at home rather than out on the road.

Jake checks out the slide that blocked him and Robby about two miles below our house.
