Read the story yesterday. They said it was unloaded and figured it had been sitting there for 100 years. Pretty neat find and I'd love to know the story of how it got there.

Yep...I saw it yesterday as well! It was a pretty cool story...it makes you wonder what the story is behind it being left? Did the owner get lost? Did he just set it down, get distracted and simply forgot where he'd left it? Hum...

Probably just someone going to Kalifornia and couldn't take it with them.

The only question I have is that the author thinks it was "propped against a juniper tree" 100 years ago. Does that tree look 100 years old?
