With the cold weather and holidays, I have been concentrating on researching the history around the Middle Fork. There is remarkably more than I expected with little documentation that I have found so far. I have recently spoken with two very helpful people, Dick Kirby who was the summer fire patrol technician for the Forest Service in the Middle Fork from 1965 to 1997 and Bill Davis a long time member of Search and Rescue.
They have been providing me information which I am trying to figure out how to capture. I am thinking that I am going to start a MF Map Project where I create a master map with all of this information.
I must say, it felt a bit odd this last weekend to not go to the MF Valley for the first time in ten weeks. I think I am getting hooked.
