Over the weekend we tried to go camping in Big Bear, however, my car overheated (or something like that) coming up the grade. We pulled off to let it cool down and happened upon Duane's place. Tucked away on a side road, Duane and his wife live in a beautiful house on the edge of a creek, edged with wild berry bushes and hollyhocks. He offered wonderful hospitality (sodas, tools, stories & wild blackberries). It quite an enjoyable way to wait for the car to cool down. Sadly, the check engine light indicated that the camping trip was not going to pan out. We limped the car home, but each of us grateful for our time at Duane's place.
