Re: 1954 Plan Crash near El Oso Mine

It took many more trips and allot of chance connections with people that I would make contact with just as I t...

1954 crash site

I agree with all that with 50 years and people possible finding the site, fire, overgrow by who knows what that it is not going to be easy or possible to find.

When I went there I camped in Big Pine Flats in a motorhome just off the El Oso road. I have a Honda trail 70 that I used on the road to the mine, some places are very rough.
