Gary told the compelling story of the circumstances of Gus Baty jumping/falling off “Fool's Rock,” sliding sixty yards down the steep mountain side and coming to rest against a Laurel bush suspended on the very edge of Whiteside's cliff a thousand feet above the valley floor, and his heroic rescue by his friend Charlie Wright.
Eric Young played and sang a song about Jimmy Rodgers' last train ride.
And Gary told an abbreviated story about 'Spear-finger'.
A good time was had by all.
