Nice to see a "form" on the Panamint Valley

Post by Packrat » Fri Jun 23, 2006 10:02 pm

Hey Panamint Charley...

Never meant up with you but perhaps some day. Just nice that you have
this web sight up and running and NOT afraid of the "Environmental" people like other sights that shut down.

I am a veteran of the Panamint and Death Valley for some 35 years and still get the chance to Doon Dock in my old age and enjoy every moment of it
for sure...

Was a resident at Indian Ranch and was one of the owners of Ballarat, so
really like the area.

Thanks for the web sight...

Packrat...

Welcome Packrat!

It will be nice to have your historical perspective on Panamint Valley here. Perhaps you can share some old pictures you have of the area.

Welcome to the site, Packrat. Please feel free to share some of your experiences with us. I think I've heard about you before. Possibly from Wild Bill. We'll have to share a camp-fire out in Ballarat some time soon.

Happy trails

To All that replied...

I do have alot of pictures for sure. In the upcoming days I will be posting
some of the adventures I have experienced out in The Pananmint Valley.

I stil believe there are alot of places to explore and things to look at. Very
proud to have known the Westons on a personal basis also and have
several of Normas paintings hanging in our home here in Ridgecrest...

Thanks again and looking forward to meeting some of you...

For those that might be interested, the Westons are alive and well in Texas. :)
You can't see the true desert or real history from a paved road!

If you believe a politician has the answer, it must have been a dumb question!

Indian Ranch/Norma Weston Paintings, etc...

Post by Packrat » Tue Aug 15, 2006 8:22 pm

Sorry but I just have been way to busy to pay attention to this web site
but trust me the stores, and pictures will surely follow. I have three big time
paintings by Norma and will take pictures of them and post them and you
can count on that. Also will be posting some pictures of Indian Ranch in
its hey day, which was the 70's and 80's....

Just give me a tad more time...

Take your time Packrat. We'll be here drooling...I mean waiting.

The gallery should be back up in a few days if you need somewhere to park those photos.
