so salty pieces of coral from surfing Hawaii in the 60's and 70's getting reef pounded living in my body fall through my skin from time to time!

sailing to Oahu

Jimi Hendrix was playing on Oahu. I had never sailed. Surfed Mexico, California, Hawaii! Aw, how hard could it be to sail 90-110 miles from Kauai to Oahu? Piece of cake, right? Remember it was the 60's! This is so bad. We thought we were looking at Kaiena Point,Ohau, knowing we weren't going to make the concert! But at least we were in site of Oahu-wrong! Coy, who had never sailed before, me,who had never sailed before, jeff and Abbott etc. We were looking at the sleeping giant on Kauai! We had done three-sixty's in the night! We sailed on the only tri-marran I've ever sailed on ( except later ) in my life, missed the concert! It was at the Waikiki Shell Ampitheater ( Moon eclipsed . We finally made Nawilwili Harbor! The Skipper tried to give us his boat saying, " It's trying to kill me"! We watched him go stark raving mad not even realising that had we got caught in the channel current we were on our way to Japan! Remember it was the 60's and we were going to see Hendrix. I left out some of the good stuff but I will make up for it later!

My claim-American River

       On my way after so hard ( if looked upon that way) a journey, that was beyond a spelling or even in the
telling, dismissed as fiction because if even contrived sounded intensely of a fabrication that only one who had desires to  show himself, egotistically special or blessed to a measure that defies human understanding!
        This story is nothing more than an honest report of events that transpired in a course of time that may appear to be special because of when and where they occured!  I contest that a miracle must have been articulated as I was and am underserving of any special affliliation to a God or a Jesus that I have read of and do not doubt that They can be real as I am! 
        I left my wife and daughter on the properties I had purchased in San Fancisco.  Knob Hill.  I am wealthy but not for the reasons you think. My name is Robbin Rhodes. My son, who is not a Jr. for I abhor that concept, is with me after Ohio- and my best friend and mighty man, Fearsy!  We are on our way to claim what is rightfully ours!  or mine, if your mind follows certain pathways that only reveal darker corridors of which selfishness may be what one really seeks!  I can't know this.  Fearsy saved me from an anguish that  only because of him, did I not have to even pretend to be a part of!  My wife, children and future were all by the wayside, without Israel!  ( My brother Fearsy)
       Luke, my son, found a great joy in  the riverboat bringing us to Sacramento.  The paddle-wheel turning, driven by an engine spewing smoke and steam because someone put together a complex set of ideas, combining a wood burning stove, creating heat which made water turn from water into a gas!  Steam!
So instead of grain being crushed by a wind driven force or water running down stream running a mill. for the first time water is turned into a gas and drives a shaft!  So we can sail ( with a motor) upstream to Sacramento from San Francisco.  My claim is way up on the American river.
       It would be unfair if I explained to you,the reader,that I had no awareness that my claim was still viable and basically un-claimed.  I had procurred enough money and fellowship to researsh my possession and ownership of said claim.  This does not mean that pirates are not waiting in the darkness as they do today, what this means is that wisdom comes at a great price.  Pay it!  And then take your bounty because it is yours and no one elses!
         Hearsy goes ashore first in Downtown Sacramento.  My son, Luke takes the alleys and river walk to find what pestilence walks amongst us tday?  We regather at our predestination, with our horses, supplies and two others!  We now are five, on horseback going for a ligetimite claim of gold!  A lot of gold.  So who will contest my claim?
