Bill,

Bullfoot is the one fellow who "inspired" me to make this "spot." Back then, tho, the forum wasn't what it is now. I have some old pieces of his that I had saved to MS Word. I will track that all down.

The other cool thing about Bullfoot was the appearance of Spawn of Bullfoot ... his daughter. She was a hoot also.

Will get these details as soon as I can - which we all know what that means.

Thanks Fred -- I like that photo. I had some great conversations with Jerry before he passed. He epitomized what I have always hoped Stovebolt.com would be.

I look forward to running through someone's campfire with him in Glory Land some old day.

Red58 has taken on my old files and is going to try to make sense of it all (good luck with that -- shame, shame -- on me!). We also will make a spot to move "da cave" so that all his cool old stuff won't be lost in cyberspace some day. Look forward to seeing all that. Thanks for helping with that Bill.

Hello to all. My dad was the one and only Bullfoot. Before he passed away his favorit web site was this one and the one he created Bullfoots Cave. I know that there is someone out there who helped my dad manage his web site after he passed. I don't remember who that was, but I am hoping that whoever it was has the info that accesses the site, Please contact me so that I can add to it.
Thank you
