    Alferd Packer, not Alfred. Even the cartoon got it wrong.

    And I think this thread has gone off the rails.

    Dr. Jay knows like anyone who has been to Boulder....

    As for posting pictures it's not hard.....

    The easiest is finding a copy online...click the picture to get 'copy picture location' option, which doesn't always work, and copy..

    Here you type [img]paste image here[/img] and paste the image where I wrote.

    To do it from your computer or smartphone you have to upload it somewhere online first, FB, etc. and copy that image and do the same.

    There is a way to do it directly from a computer but it only posts a thumbnail and looks like crap.

    There's an absolutely great old Far Side cartoon about the Donner Party (I sent it earlier to Dr Jay but I can't figure out how to post pictures on this board).

    A group of people are standing around a statue that reads at the base "Donner Party Memorial" - the statue is a sandwich - two pieces of bread with a foot in it.

    Train with 183 passengers stranded in Oakridge, OR:

    Children on train: "We're tired, cold, hungry, and grumpy. Someone tell us a bedtime story."

    Adult: "Well, once upon a time there was a group of brave pioneers called the Donner Party."

    There are no food carts anywhere near the Wild Duck I can safely say...

    We do like our beer not to go to waste.....though in those days choices in town were very limited.

    Here's a better video of the explosion. You get to see it four times in 36 seconds. All's well as long as the Wild Duck was unaffected.....
