On July 16th, 94, "Good Pete" Patel was the owner; there were a bunch of
us holed up there overnight (SAILOR BOB, TAZZI DEVIL [Alf], ONE STEP,
CHUCKLES, BUFFALO STICK, to name a few)... Pete took us all over town for
Beer, Pizza and supplies... "HULAGN" showed up about 9:30 PM with severe
shin splints, Pete took him out for Chinese... Met most of Petes family
while there... Very hiker friendly place....
