ELK CITY — Had a gentleman come by the hotel and donate a copy of both the third (1973?) and fourth edition of the Golden Road to Adventure produced by the Brink and a Half Club, Inc., after reading about it in this column. Thank you, Mr. Harold Schuerman of Grangeville! Anyone out there have the first or second edition?

Saw a red helicopter going low and slow and found out they were up counting elk.
