Computer Needed

One of the gals on the mountain had her computer heat up real hot and it seems to be over for good.  She’d appreciated it so much the past couple years and very dependent on it for work and keeping in touch with family.

She asked me to put a message out to see if anyone happens to have an extra computer?  She has had some medical issues lately so going out to get a new one would be challenging.  A laptop would be appreciated because of limited space, but anything in working condition would really be appreciated.

Just let me know if you can help.

Thank you

Rental or RV Hookups Needed


Do you have a small cabin available as a monthly rental for me and my 8 year old daughter?  What about an RV hook-up?  That could work, too.

Let me introduce myself, I am Heather Forester.  My daughter and I have been living in our 30 foot, 2004 travel trailer, in a park at the base of the mountain. Friends on the mountain have generously included my daughter for home school since March 1st.  We’d really like to continue this but I’d love to get into a small – even very rustic, fixer cabin, or move my trailer to the top of the mountain.

I’ve worked at Trader Joes since October 2015, part time and also am available for house cleaning, painting, working parties, events, home health care, animal or pet care or any house or ranch needs.

Voice or text 760-840-0154

Thank you so much!

The Great Squirrel Photo Contest


Did you know Palomar had white squirrels?  I’m looking forward to seeing my first one!  Not my photo, but sure is a beautiful animal.  Thanks to Don Grant for the info and sending this contest our way.

Please send your photos to

Subject: The Great Squirrel Photo Contest

Date: July 15, 2018 at 9:33:47 PM PDT

“White” squirrels have been spotted around Boucher, including today. They range in colour from blueish gray to white. They are not albinos, they are possibly white morphs which are eastern grey squirrels, which are known to be in California and are known to have the defective gene that causes this.

We would like clear photos of them if anyone is lucky enough to see one.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Elevated fire restrictions went into effect Monday for the Cleveland National Forest, which encompasses more than 460,000 acres in the counties of San Diego, Riverside and Orange.

— smoking within forest;

— using firearms; and

— welding, grinding, cutting or using explosives, as well as other activities requiring a special use authorization.

Additionally, year-round restrictions continue on fireworks and the use of wood or charcoal fires outside developed campgrounds in the southernmost national forest in California, which is divided into the Descanso, Palomar and Trabuco Ranger Districts.

Spark arresters are also required for all off-highway vehicles, chainsaws and other internal combustion equipment.

From:  Glen Heggstad

IMG_1654 2

Modular home transportable on wheels. All 2×6 construction screwed, glued and mounted on massive twin steel I-beams. Perfect for your country property while you wait to build your home or make this your permanent hideaway. Approximately 500 square feet with 8 foot ceilings means a spacious mini-condo to transplant from Palomar, wherever you want. Or even better if you have an existing property this would make for an excellent Airbnb that could likely pay for itself in a few months.

Comes with small refrigerator/freezer, flat screen TV, Bose Home Theater, stove, leather sofas, leather bar stools, microwave, blender and complete kitchen utensils…everything you need–totally turnkey including queen size bed with linens and towels. It’s well insulated with central forced-air heating and cooling.

Best of all this comes with complete solar system — panels, charge controller, inverter and all cables. Thirty gallon propane tank makes this everything you need to be self-contained.

11×14 Bedroom

8×5 Bathroom

11×8 Kitchen

11×13 Living room

This is not a trailer but rather a modular home that should be moved professionally.

Connect with Glen Heggstad for more details.

S’mores and More on Saturday


This old-fashioned, get-to-know-your-neighbors, BBQ Potluck is planned for Saturday.

Saturday the 14th, 4:00 to 10 ish  – Gather ’round, visit, games, campfire

5:00 to 6:30  – Taco Time and Potluck

I stopped at the Fire Department today to borrow tables and chairs (thanks Mike Pique for setting that up).  Those nice firemen offered to deliver! So we have plenty of seating.  (Isn’t it great what folks will do for tacos?!)  🙂

Cecilia Borland called today offering to bring a couple more games.  She is also bringing fresh mountain mint for sun tea… ah, the good old days are here again!

From the top of the mountain, take State Park Road to the grandkid’s cute little firewood stand.  Unload there and park where you can on the road, across at the lookout, or along Fern Meadow Road. If you’d like a shuttle, please let us know when you unload.

Thank you!  Where ever you may be this weekend, have a wonderful one!

Bonnie and Don
