Woodknot was the
featured band. KapnKenB without the Skyps went down to Saginaw and then
up to Cougar Mountain for the event. The old cooperative treeplanting
gang, The Hoedads, bought the property on Cougar Mountain and it is now
a center for alternative energy and hip gardening.
They built the
stage structure just for the event. A seventy foot long fir tree is the
front beam. Solar panels on the roof provide electricty.
Jerry Rust is an
original Hoedad, one of the founding members. A Lane County commisioner
forever, he gave it up to run for governor and ended up teaching
English at a grade school in China. Home for the summer, it was a grand
reunion and as an added treat, I met his wife, Star, whom Jerry married
while in China this past year.
