Great atmospheric shot WD. Now why does it remind me of Deliverance?
There was an article in the paper (Gazette I think) a few months back that gave the entire history of the trailer. An old man still uses it sometimes, but I cant remember how the entire story went.
Bruiser Cole put the bus out there in the 1950s. You can see the front of the bus in the left side of the photo at the end of the porch he added on later.
Walter Cole aka Bruiser is my Uncle. He and my Dad placed this 1938 Greyhound bus on the rock the year I was born, 1954. Later, my uncle constructed a porch on the front for my Aunt.
Hi Debbie Alice, Was you around there growing up? Earl and Jeff Winebrenner built one of the Cabins along the south edge of New River. Gene and Leara Woods always had a camp set up across on north edge. We'd boat, ski, fish and swim both sides of the river. I remember the bus before the porch was put on mid 70's? My Grand Father Earl had a old School bus he'd painted blue and had it set up inside as a camper and have it at the Camp Grounds all the time. Leara was Earl and Jeff's sister. Thanks for the picture WD. Alot of memory's on that water.
National Public Radio NPR did a report on this site. 'Bruiser Coles Fishing Camp'
I remember the Winebrenners. We also had a camp on the other side on land. My parents were Howard "Mopey" Cole, Jr. and Betty Cole. Ours was about dead center. As I remember the Winebrenners camp was one of the last camps toward the hydro.
