BLACK BUTTE CENTER FOR RR CULTURE
MERLE HAGGARD TRIBUTE/SHASTA CAR FUNDRAISER:
Grey Eagle, Asheville, NC, April 6, 2019
For any friends of BBCRC near Asheville, NC, please come to our fundraiser on April 6th, organized by board member Brody Hunt. A fun evening of honky tonk music celebrating the legacy of Merle Haggard on his birthday. It's our third annual fundraiser in Asheville and will feature many great musicians with proceeds going to the ongoing restoration of the BBCRC's SP 109 Shasta car. Get tickets early as this is likely to be a sold-out show!

Railcars in Need of Repair!
There is now a total of six pre-Great Depression wood railcars at Black Butte. Our boxcar, built in 1919, is now 100 years old! The wear and tear due to our at-times harsh winter has been taking its toll! In short, we have a lot of work to do! Siding replacement, rebuilding the skylights on the reefer, repainting, window work and much more. We are really going to need help to do this--both volunteer labor and financial donations for materials. We have extended our railcar fundraiser until the end of April. Please check it out and, if you haven't done so already and have even just a few bucks to spare, please consider a donation, either by check to BBCRC or on our Go Fund Me page (and note that while you will be asked for a substantial "donation" to Go Fund Me, that is optional, you don't have to pay the recommended amount or anything at all. This is the link for the GN caboose page: https://www.gofundme.com/wooden-great-northern-caboose and this is the one for our boxcar/reefer page:

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
