That really sucks. It was the highlight of my trip every year.

Hey Stinson, Give me a call. The number I called was answered by a real "A Hole" and wouldn't give any info on you. Are you still running from the feds.

I was just there on Dec, 23rd. 02. and all that was left standing was a small corner of Fort Apache, The Cig factory and TnT.
I was there to tour the Cig factory but they were closed that day

I talked to Bud and he said that they would be moving in April, so I am going back down in Feb or March. to try again.
maybe this time I wont get run over by a backhoe

Was there a couple of years ago, got some great shots of the beautiful hardware in the Ft Apache racks!
What a place.

Troutly- Sean said there was nothing there before except trees and a concrete plant if he remembers correctly.

This is all a bunch of tree hugging hippie crap. They save old buildings that are completley worthless but make boat history be torn down.

Ps, I want one of those signs for the front of the house!!!
