My good old friend DZ down there will be stocked. He can start back in care taking Deer Flat ranch once again...

Last year was probably the best year down there that I can remember. A week with both the north side and the south side of 101 blocked. Only access was over Nacamiento road through Fort Hunter Ligget.

Absolutely quiet at night. No cars, no headlights. No chinese tourists. Douchebags, clueless douchebags, Trump might actually have something right putting a clamp on them.

I agree, there is definitely a vibe in the area and presence that you just feel. Hard to explain. Spent so many days at Willow just watching time go by, staring at the sky, and chasing gold in the sand and up the creek. cheers


With the roads closed, a whole different vibe.

You are from down Cambria way, remember Brother Frog???

He was a fixture at Willow for years. Those water color T shirts, He cased the parking lot daily. Eventually a doob, sandwich or a couple of beers.


Was Brother Frog in Willow before or after his time at the Rock? I grew up on the central coast and Brother Frog was a fixture at the Rock until I moved south when I was in my 20s. I still go up there once a year to visit my parents but rarely surf or hang out long enough to see if any of the old characters are still around.

Good to hear... Is his van still running? I heard a while back he was going to try to buy a boat in the harbor with his social security but not sure if it ever came to fruition.

He has a new van, and I believe he's living on a boat in the harbor, whether he bought it or rents I don't know.
My kid bought me a bro fro shirt for my birthday this year, stocked! laugh

He made some pretty neat pipes.

Yes, Still have the most bitchen soapstone pipe. Green soapstone. A late afternoon at Willow.

A couple of dollars or a jug of cheap wine. The most perfect pipe you all have ever seen.

Watercolor. Brother Frog did his thing in watercolor.

One wash and it was gone. A 10$ oil change rag after it was washed out.

He was one of the old time regulars, So glad to hear he is alive and doing well. Merry Prankster.

I'm heading through Big Sur On Monday. Camping Monday and Tuesday, then camping outside of Santa Barbara for a night, then on to my moms in San Diego. It just so happened that the road will be open, which I'm kind of bummed about. I was hoping to enjoy it with a little less crowd.

I'm camping up near Ventana. My girlfriend wanted a place with a shower and all that. I'm easing her into the camping thing. Move slow to move fast and all that...

I need tips. I stayed at Kirk Creek the only other time I went through Big Sur.
Any info on what to check in on would be really appreciated.

Drove through the new section on Saturday. Road is nice, wide, smooth; the surrounding hillside looks SKETCH. I give it a few rains, one winter tops, before it all goes again.

That area is even more un-stable than Salsipuedes
