BMR says they are going to party like it's 1968. Well not quite 1968 at Baldy. There was only one cabin completed - the Fairweather cabin, now Randal and Maryann's home. New Years Eve 1968 was the first night for the Fairweather and Smith families on the mountain.
The wood stove was hot, the coal oil lights were lit, and we discovered that there was too much insulation between the main floor and the upstairs. It was 90F on the main floor, and 40F upstairs.
Just nine of us on the mountain, and at midnight, Dad went out the back door and fired his shotgun.
Fast forward to 2016 - the New Years Eve details are now on the BMR website:
There isn't room for everyone at the lodge, so pick up your tickets ASAP if you want to go. Long John Baldy will be playing. Too much detail to repost here.
