HST sighting (kind of)

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

HST sighting (kind of)

Postby gary c. » Mon Apr 06, 2009 10:09 am

I was sitting at the window waiting for my food at the jack in the box in mojave when I notice the guy behind me get out of his truck and start towards mine. He wanted to know if I was on my way to hike the Sierras? I said no I was on my way to see Alan Jckson at Primm :confused: I'm sorry to say that it really thru me off and I didn't take the time to introduce myself properly. He said he had seen my "Got Mountains" decal and wanted to introduce himself. I forget his name but he said his brothers name is "Tom G". Anyhow, thanks' for introducing yourself and I'm sorry that I didn't take the time to be more sociable I will try to do better next time. ;)

TomG has 3 brothers, David, Richard and Wild Bill. Do you remember what he was driving?

I didn't even notice, I just saw his door open in my rearview mirror. He only got to the back corner of my Sequoia as the girl handed me our food and we only exchanged a few words before she was back at the window wondering why I hadn't left yet. When I asked him if he was on the site he said no but he hikes the Sierras and that Tom is his brother. Like I wrote above the whole meeting caught me off guard and I got in too big a hurry.

That might be David. I haven't met him yet, but I think he's the one that was supposed to do the JMT last year.
