Re: “The Glory That Is Willits

I was thinking that was such a funny little image. Too bad you weren't there. Nothing like playing excite bike in the early hours at T-N-T. I used to love running into DVO, at odd hours, playing vid's.

The beauty that is Willits is truly amazing if you stop and take a look. The Eel River, the little water fall off the logging road (just outside of town on hwy 20), the forest, mountains and streams... the list could just go on. There is something about the smell of the forest that is unique to the Willits when you are first driving into the area... it is so refreshing, so sweet, so clean... for me it is the scent of home. Does that help?

Re: “The Glory That Is Willits

How is my favorite Hibbs? Why is it that all of us seem to recall Bilbo's? Was the food that exquisite? I have a fine photo of the famed "Willits" sign that I use from time to time as my screen saver (as I actually miss Willits). I have such good friends and memories from Willits that I still consider it home. What was it I was supposed to be helping?

Re: “The Glory That Is Willits

Fondest Willits memory... There are so many. I am not sure why but the memory of DVO absconding with a cider jug of wine coolers from Border Town Express comes to mind. We went to the Baptist Church to embibe the the carbonated Jesus Juice in order to enhance our video play only to be interrupted as Binkley showed up with a truck full of 8th grade girls (mind you he was 18 or 19 at the time). We left as I had already spent time in the local pokey for being in possession of a chocolate milkshake... something about drinking the shake while in the high school during the wee hours of the morning (2 am) and I thought it wouldn't be a good mix. Ahhh... good times!!!

As to why Willits is working it's way back??? I really couldn't say. I have not been back during the last two years but am hoping to see for myself during the 4th of July. Does anyone know what the 4th schedule will be like this coming year? Last time I was there they had pushed things out so I didn't get to make the big parade and had to spend my time out near cable rock. The wife fell in love with eel river during that trip. I know we'll be headed back to the river if we find that this talk of pubs and a cool downtown is only talk. So let's hope that Hank is giving us the true skinny.

Does anyone know if the Loose Caboose is still around?
