How about Iowa Hill, CA? They are just now getting phone service, and still have no electrical service.

Sounds like a well-adjusted community.

Punch Bug was the game us kids played in the car back in the 60's. And a contraption like that was worth a triple.

Am I close?

It would be right at home here, or up the road in Rackerby.

The photos made me laugh. Reminded me of college where I lived in a mobile home park across the street from the campus where a bunch of hippies parked their buses back in the 70s and called it home. Still had all the buses with the volkwagens welded to the top.

There were a few of those buses I saw at the Rainbow Gathering in NM in '77. I think I saw the same one there and at the lot at Shoreline in the early 80's too. It was a VW bug on top of a VW bus, on top of a school bus. Painted white and emblazoned with some wings and a logo of sorts that said "Prairie Eagle"... at least that's how I remember it...

Here's from last year... http://vimeo.com/5828272

humbug, forks of the salmon, somes bar, ligget, denny, big flat, beegum (rest its soul), ponderosa, mill creek (year round population, 1) igo, ono.........the list of micro communities goes on and on. one of the only reasons to stay in ca. is some of the small communities where people still take care of themselves, the old fashion way.

i don't think i named a berg with a hundred people in it.

Ah ha! You see, there's a age difference here. In the sixties, I was playing games in the back seat, but of a different sort.
