Well, Cal City Skydive may be long gone, but some of still get together and go shooting out in the desert, just like we used to after jumping back in the good ol' days.
This past Friday a few of us met for lunch at the airport terminal (Foxy's... aka Jamie's) and then went shooting out at Far Point.
While taking a walk, enjoying a fresh beverage and picking up unbroken clays to sling and shoot at again, I found this old beer can (see the photo labled "found in desert").
While rusted and very badly faded, it's amazing that its still in one piece, un-crushed and not perferated with bullet holes after being out in the desert at a spot where drunk skydivers have been shooting for several (skydiver) generations.
A quick Google without even having to leave Far Point (smart phones ROCK!) found that this can once held "Brew 102" made by the former L.A. Brewery.
It must have been some "good stuff" to go for 99 cents a 6-pack!
Anyway, the other photo attached (NewBrew) showes what the can we found probably looked like before being discarded and left to rust in the desert for 40ish years!
