Is that the Original "Further"?

MaxFarrar on March 24, 2009

Yes. It had been parked in a swamp in a grove of trees for several decades appearantly, but Ken Kesey's son and some friends hauled it up to the old orchard near the county road in 2005 or 06.

It is not in good condition and needs some protection from the Oregon elements. Maybe the Smithsonian would be interested in helping.

Ken built a replica Furthur in the 1990's and, among other things, shipped it to England for the 1999 Solar Eclipse in Cornwall. It must be back in the States now, but I don't know where.

While I was taking several pictures from the road a woman came out the driveway in a late model Buick and waved as she drove into town. I think it was Mountain Girl. It was a real thrill.

I drove past last weekend and Further was nowhere in sight. I guess they've put it in a barn or built a shelter for it.
