Jay, I went thru Wasco a few weeks ago. Looks much the same. They raise a lot of flowers there for the flower shops. Many acres of color. Out in the middle of nowhere. And very hot. Scott

Wayne,
A friend of our family OWNS Hambone! Been there many times, even helped recover a '17 Pullman touring from some bushes out near there.

Wasco is about 4 hours south of Hayfork.

West of Famosa by about 25 miles. That should help.

Bill, there is a Hayfork, CA.
It is up near Redding.
I went up there '70 and drove an old Porsche back to San Francisco with a broken clutch cable.
It is so far out in the boonies they get radio programs a day late.

The Hayfork reference must have been humor, as that ground is way too flat to be around Hayfork!
When I was in grade School, I seem to remember our High School football team was tramped by theirs--too many husky farm boys!! Our railroader kids just couldn't do it!(I grew up in Dunsmuir).

Bruce from San Jose: It is spelled "SHAFTER not Shaftner, sorry to correct you but my Dad worked in the south valley in the teen's and twenty's. He talked about Lost Hill, Taft, Fellow's McKittrick, Maricopa, during the oil field days. Some real wild stories.

This should help.

Jan: When my Dad worked in either Taft or Fellows apparently a strike was looming and there was a train load of "Scab" labors came to one of the town down there and the oil field workers would not let the guys of the train. The train went back to LA and that was the end of the problem. He often told that story. Have no idea what year that happened. I am sure if you were to research that era you could find some mention of it in the archives of history.

Great story. Sounds like your dad and the other men were not a bunch that one would want to mess with.

Aaron
I used Hayfork as it is one of the "bigger" towns in that area. I have been through the town that used to have the drive through pot store, Bridgeville, and a few other wide spots between Eureka and I5.
However I live 30 miles from where Donald Turnupseed survived a famous accident with a Porsche in 1955.
