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.)

Some of those cars look pretty familiar! I remember the jet at Meadow park.

I looked up the current outage map on the Edison website and I do not see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point over Big Bear. Is the power back on now, SLM?

SLM - Do you think it could be maintenance work? SCE has been upgrading subdivisions all over the region.

Thanks for the cell phone info SNED and Polar. We were checking around different carriers, probably going to stay AT&T who we've had pretty good luck with on forestry areas, believe it or not. Just for possible emergencies, we're not spring chickens any more!

Jilly, I can confirm Verizon works at 34.166788, -116.752112 and T Mobile does not. Just a spot up 1N38 on the south side of 38.

Thanks Doo-hick-way. I am sure I met the inspector at Vons 2 months ago. I mentioned I had not received a violation... must be good? He said no... haven’t been where you live yet and he expected to see a lot of problems. He drives a small white suv. I think a Chevy. I asked my neighbor who is usually at home and he has seen that vehicle around yet. Only asking because I trimmed a couple more trees today in hopes he had not shown up.

I have not physically seen them. But, when I went to Saw Works, there were odd tire tracks at each of my photos from notice to abate.
