Dave, your continued support for the trail by 'wheeling it, repairing folks on it, working on it, fundraising for it, and talking about it sets a fine example, and a high bar indeed. I'll share beers with you and Tim any time, but it'll be a battle to see who can slap the cash down fast enough to buy!

I have been lucky enough to meet Dick Wentworth and his mom, and talk with them about the old days. Dick essentially grew up in Wentworth Springs and spent his youth and teens on the trail (lucky!) and had some great stories about Vic Wikander and the islands and the Rubicon in general. I spent an afternoon with them just listening to tales from the past -- it was a GREAT day! There's some more discussion about Wikander on www.GerleCreek.com and here: https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...light=wikander -- I'd sure LOVE to have Mr. Wikander show me the highlights of his island, back in the day!

This is a fun thread -- thanks again Tim and Dave!

Jeepers Jamboree: The First Thirty Years, by Peg Presba

You can't...well, it's a real collector's item. I've seen them go for two hundred on eBay. If anybody's got a copy they want to make a little cash on, PM me!

I have her second book that covers the next ten years (31st to 40th), but haven't been able to get the first one.

Buck Island Lake

Well if we keep up at this rate, maybe we will get the whole book scanned. Trouble is I start scanning but have to stop and read Hard book to put down

With all the talk of Lakes and Cabins on said lake thought this would be a good chapter for tonight:










A side note on the scans: I'm fully aware of the piss poor job I'm doing of the descreen (Moire) but for the sake of speed I put a rough script together to batch process.

If a certain picture grabs anyones attention and they would like to see a better repro let me know and I will see what I can do.

very interesting. I have 'Book II' from Ms. Presba. It's a total 178 pages but the pages and pix in my book do not correspond with the above pix. Still, a very cool, retro read. The Book II says "The first 40 years..." and is hardcover published in 1992.




Here's a link for one: mine is missing the cool dust cover...

Here's a picture of the downstream side of the old dam taken about a year before I went on my first trip.

Rubicon Trail 1926 & '28

Here's a great Chapter from the book. I'm sure we all have a sense of great achievement every time we cross the Rubicon, I know I do. Knowing that feeling only makes me appreciate even more so what our "Wheeling predecessors" most have experienced and felt. Sure the trail has changed over the years but even taking that in to account, things like this just make me go "Wow"







And just in case you didn't catch it the first time, have a read about the "Stubborn Flivver"

Was doing research on my husband's family and googled Presba and found this way cool and interesting thread on the Jamboree Books.

Two of the biggest thrills in my life included compiling these two books. If you will look hard, you will see that it is a compilation of many people's thoughts and experiences on the trail. I quoted everyone who I could find, from first hand interviews, to the 4x4 magazines that recorded the event through the years and every other source I could contact.

The Jamboree story belongs to every Jeeper who ever had the awe inspiring experience of hitting the Rubicon Trail. Our forefathers' stories ring with the thrill they found in its pristine beauty and challenge of crossingt , the same thrill we still find today, and not just on the first trip, but everytime we get the opportunity to run the route.

The book is copyrighted by the Jeepers Jamboree, but as long as you don't copy the entire book in one place, you should be able to do as you are doing. Copyright law says you can only copy small portions and always site the source...

I would like to thank you for all the very nice comments you made on the book. It really made my evening to see how much this book is still appreciated.

Anytime you need help on compiling a new one (book), look me up in Oakley, Idaho. My heart will always belong to the Rubicon Trail and I will support any venture in preserving its history!!!

Wow...All I can say is Thank you for putting together such a wonderful jewel of a book that displays the history of "our" Trail in such a beautiful way. It truly has been a pleasure to read and a great way to share such wonderful history with all fellow "wheelers".

Thanks again Peg.
