Up Close and Personal

A couple lucky cyclists had a Neil Is Everywhere moment:

03/18/03- SOME MESSAGES AREN'T WELL-HIDDEN as I discovered on this morning's ride. Kevin & Ueyn showed up, with Kevin insisting that we abandon the normal dogleg of Old LaHonda in favor of checking out someone's statement carved into the hillside down Bear Gulch Road. If you're having trouble finding it in the photo, it's the slashed circle with "WAR" in the middle, found on the hillside in the upper-right corner.

But that's not all that made this ride interesting. How often do you get the chance to be up close and personal with Neil Young? We did... if we'd been heading down Bear Gulch any faster, we would have been his hood ornament! At the gate at the end of Bear Gulch we saw a truck drive through, with the license plate "MIX MSTR." Dummy me, I thought it was a construction guy. About 3pm I was telling Dick in our RC store about the ride, and it suddenly came to me that "MIX MSTR" is probably a well-known studio audio mixer. Duh!

Yes indeedio, that's the same 'statement' the fetching Sun Green (see sidebar) created in Neil Young's most excellent Rock Opera, Greendale. YT can say Greendale is most excellent with confidence, having seen the show four times in various venues from the FRONT FUCKING ROW.
