    Absolutely. I'd love to have that job. Let's just hope those tops don't get cut until 2806....

    I'd love to spend a day outside in the woods around there, walking through a giant redwood forest! That would be some great hiking.

    I might need my +1 hiking boots.

    Think of how boring the world would be if it weren't for "strange" people like this. Just look around this forum from the perspective of someone who is not passionate about basses and we all seem strange to them.

    Vive la difference!

  9. Try John Muir Woods national forest, just off the Pacific Coast highway north of San Francisco. Old growth, really tall...and underneath the canopy grow those trees that provide bay leaves for cooking (can't recall the name). The combination of aromas is really something.

    And you don't need anything more than sneakers. :)

    I'm more of a stump hugger myself! I once pondered being a tree hugger, but the thought of wiping myself with a spotted owl was more than I could bear.
     
  11. You're thinking of Myrtlewood, AKA Oregon Myrtle, California laurel, or just plain Bay laurel along the California north coast. "Pepperwood" to some of us who cut it. It's NOT the same bay leaf used in cooking beans :)

    Drivng along the redwood highway seeing all the giant redwoods is awesome, but then you see a roadside sign "Big Tree" with an arrow pointing down a side road...you just gotta see "that" one!!


    Luke, that link didn't work for me. rats!!

    Hey Larry, would that be the tree you can drive through?

    I was up that way a few weeks ago and took a chance, and it was an amazing tree.
     
  13. Nope..that drive thru tree is "small" compared to the "Big Tree". I think "Big Tree" is an official name for the tree. I'll check it out...
