Hello,
I'm Tom Jones II from Trona, CA....I stumbled across this site/forum after searching for the FOB (Friends Of Briggs) web site....No Luck...well anyway it was a great find...I have read what I think is the larger part of the content on the forum and everything on the site....GREAT JOB!!! well a little about me...I'm 22 and have lived in Trona the better part of my life...my family moved to Ballarat in 1969 Paul, Lillian,Nick,Tammy and my dad Tom Sr.. the kids did their best to escape at an early age but grandma and grandpa were there till 1984...the year I decided to show up...lol.........anyway if your in Ballarat in the store you can still see the markings of grandpas great artistic skills with the name of Jones on the floor........so that is a small start to me and hope to meet all of you out on the trails.....

Tom

And no doubt we'll all be looking for the Jones graffiti on the floor next time we're out there! :D
