Bill - we've GOT to meet up next time we are over, if you care to.BillinOregon said:Bob: I'm not Ticster, but I am building a 1/4-scale mountain howitzer and I am in the Rogue Valley.
Port Orford, lots of memories there. My kids-both in their 40's, still remember going to the Knapp Ranch at the mouth of the Elk River and looking for "seagull turds". Sitting on my kitchen counter is a mason jar full of them.BillinOregon said:Tac: That sounds lovely. Port Orford is particularly charming. My wife and I like to beach comb and look for agates. Keep in touch when you are ready to cross the pond.
Well two ways Bill, first I was the Authority.BillinOregon said:DD: Thanks for the collecting tip!
How did you manage to fire a cannon at Battle Rock and avoid detention by the authorities?
Bill, just got off the phone with the daughter and we talked about this. We had a laugh over some good memories. She did pass this piece advice about agate hunting the Elk river on the Knapp ranch. Start looking in river edge as soon as you get to the gravel bar and start walking towards the mouth. She said be sure to look as you walk down and walk the same path back up the river from the ocean. Oh and most important she said don't pick up the squishy ones.DD said:Port Orford, lots of memories there.

Some good cannon shooting there---fired my cannon from Battle Rock, last person to do that before me, was Tichenor.
