    Second year of college I was taking a camping class in the Recreation Department - a requirement for Rec majors and minors (the latter being yours truly).  One of the class assignments was a group backpacking trip into Point Reyes.  Easy for those of outdoors types; a mite challenging for the city slickers.

     

    So the group eventually rendezvoused at the camping area.  There were basically three types of participants:  those of us who were prepared based on experience; those who prepared by reading the class syllabus; and two singularly unique "gentlemen" who were the last to arrive due to their footwear and burden.

     

    The last two, who were um... of "African American" descent... showed up looking like extras from the Super Fly movie of the era.  Double-knit bell bottom slacks; shirts with huuuge, pointed lapels, white belts, wide brimmed fedoras, alligator platform shoes... 

     

    And the only "provisions" they brought along was literally a well-stocked portable bar.

     

    I'm here to tell ya, folks, those gentlemen wanted for nothing that weekend!  Food... warm clothes... bedding... all readily available for barter.  :lol:

    Let me guess... they forgot about the guns on the roof and they rusted out in the rain.

     

    Found my Arisaka Type 99 on a rooftop 52 years ago...  all rusty, frozen up and covered in crud.

     

    It cleaned up right nicely!  :)
