I will never forget our bicycle trip from Oakhurst to Chandler Park right after Christmas in 1957. My brother, Jimmie, Billy and I packed our lunches and took off for a grand adventure. Billy was a good friend and I always looked forward to fun times with him. as a kid growing up. Precious memories. Looking forward to seeing him again one day.
