Fragments from the Spruce Archives

While searching for some maps in the depths of our Earth Shelter office, I came across some remnants(what the mice didn't get) of other generations of dedicated Spruce Knob Mountain Center employees.

This is whats left from a clipping from the Daily News-Record dated Monday, January 11, 1982. The picture shows Michael Meador, then co-director of technology, walking up the hill from base camp, which is the farmhouse where Dave, Ruth Ann, and Annie Martin currently reside. It's really amazing how clear those hill sides where then. They are now more or less covered with forest.

Who wants a sticker?

I was recently chided for not posting anything on the blog. That made me wonder if people actually read the blog. I think a few do. So this is my experiment.

Anybody want a sticker?

It's a nice sticker of the picture in the top left corner of the screen (the sunset and spruce tree). I must say that it isn't a proper bumpersticker or a scratch and sniff, but, boy oh boy does it stick. You can stick these things all over the place like on water bottles, refrigerators, lunch boxes, dash boards, notebooks, journals, etc. I don't advocate sticking them to stop signs, dogs, or other peoples' dashboards.

If you want a sticker or two or have a comment about my riveting blog entries email me at nhayes@mountain.org.
