Hello all,
Going UTH for our annual fall visit on the 18th of Oct. Have never stayed in the area of E North Shore near Sequoia right off of 18. Two of us seniors so always concerned about safety.

Would appreciate your valued opinion.

Thank you and stay cool...over 100 here in SD but dry.....and Thank God no fires.

All I can tell you is that wherever you are, even in Big Bear, you need to be aware of your surroundings. We do not have drive-by shootings up here or homicides, for that matter, like they do DTH. I have lived here full time for 18 yrs, and I can tell you that I am more concerned for my safety, even when staying on base in SD, than I am up here. You just have to use good judgment wherever you are, and keep aware of your surroundings. I might add that if you open the door and are greeted by a 400 lb furry fellow on all fours, I would close the door quickly!

Summer will be here soon!

Thank you Cricket....I follow all that you mentioned anywhere even here in SD. However I may have to budge on the 400 lb furry fellow on all fours since he sounds like an interesting fellow and similar to several I have met in my lifetime....
Sounds more friendly than the characters down here knocking door to door selling solar systems....

We ended up renting on Knight street near village. My friend has a hard time getting around and is now going through Chemo. SO a single story place is a must. We drive around a lot to see the leaves changing and views since walking is minimal.

Thanks for your input. Just saw the chatbox about the two mountain lions....haven't seen one of them in years. Hope to see the wild donkeys this year. And to enjoy the cool weather.

I was a letter-carrier for over 27 years. We gave special attention to mail-in ballots, making sure they were processed faster. It is safe to send your ballots through the mail, I would not drop them off at any place other than the Post Office. Back then, we even took them without stamps when postage WAS required. If you are worried about dropping them in the out going mail, hand deliver it to a window clerk. I would not place anything with a check or very important mail in a outside box, always take it inside. If you have a mail box at home, do not put important outgoing mail in it to be picked up.📪

Me too, Sportj. I just received this text. "Your ballot for the 2020 General Election was received and will be counted. Thank you for voting!".

I got a text that my ballot was counted! Wahoo! So anyone else who is waiting (after using the drop boxes) it took exactly one week.

MtnTeach - the ballot boxes aren’t third party. They are official county elections office drop boxes.

Dropped off mines directly at the post office, don't need a 3rd party. Ballottrax worked fine for me!

7:30 a.m. Tues - given to mail lady at Crestline Post Office
8:02 a.m. Wed - notified by ballottrax that my ballot had been received by USPS
1:16 p.m. Wed - notified my ballot had been received by SB Registrar of Voters

USPS worked fine!

I dropped my ballot in the dropbox at the Crestline library a couple of weeks ago, it took about a week for ballot tracker to notify me that my ballot had been received and counted.

Yes, I was so politely informed by the Big Bear Postmaster that putting anything in the box outside is no guarantee it will get processed. They even tried to extend that non-responsibility to the box inside the PO. So basically he was telling me my mail no matter where I put it, will maybe get delivered, depending on how the post office feels that day. Amazing.

USFS: Volunteers this past Saturday covered 488 graffiti tags, took out 5 illegal campfire rings and removed 187 pounds of trash along Deep Creek and Hesperia Falls.

The forest partnered with the @MojaveDesertLT and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Great work volunteers! 🤝 [Click Here]

Sport, I believe the only couple I asked said 4 days but I'll text them and ask again. All were impressed with the tracking service.

I dod, however, use the indoor drop at the Post Office rather than an outside box.

Official Absentee ballot instructs us to go to SBCountyElections.com. I dropped mine on 10/17, it was received at the SB County registrar on 10/20.

Casadelgado - Did they say how long it took for them to show up as received?

Dave - ha ha I don't know why I assumed you dropped them off last Monday! Keep me posted if yours is updated any time soon.
