    Early.
    Peacefully.
    He may have been sleeping. He was born in 1936 so he was pretty tired.


    He put a small block Chevy in a Willy's flat fender wagon, built a wood framed canvas covered kayak, helped build a wooden drift boat for the John Day River, drove us to Alaska from Oregon, backpacked and slept in the open, tent camped, owned 2 tent trailers, 1 travel trailer and was on the third fifth wheel.

    [font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]His last camping trip was with me. Just the 2 of us for a couple days at Cinder Hill CG in the Newberry Crater in central Oregon.[/font]

    [font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Good memories with an amazing man.[/font]
