  3. I am amazed that the driver got away with hauling a load loaded like that.

    I'd bet it didn't start that way.

  6. It makes the butt pucker just thinking about it. I never tipped one, but a friend of mine had a load of lumber shift, and he went over and was damn near killed when the bottle jack missed his head by a few thousandths of an inch. Hauling lumber was always scarier to me than hauling logs, because it was so slippery, that on a wavy road that got the truck rocking, it loved to shift.
    Scary crap.

    Malibu early 1950s weekend




    upload_2019-5-7_4-35-55.png
    Hello,


    Driving down Pacific Coast Highway during the early 1950s on a weekend or in 2019, the highway was/is always crowded. The attraction was Malibu’s famous Surfrider Beach and Malibu Pier. Both drew people from all over So Cal as a destination point. The draw was the possibility of seeing a “movie star or two” on the beach.

    Look at the wide variety of cool cars that went to the beach. (Only two woodies and one panel van in the photo.) This might be because most of those wagons/vans were just up the highway along the frontage of the actual Surfrider Beach. From the center of the photo, it is a long walk, carrying 50-60 lbs boards to the actual surfing beach.

    The stars lived all up and down this portion of the coast line, in the narrow beachfront homes, to the sprawling homes high on a hill. Some were even behind locked gates leading to the private beaches along this coastline. During our times in the late 50s and early 60s, we were at Malibu Surfrider Beach many times and the only stars we saw were in the early morning sky as we paddled out in the dark.

    Jnaki

    But the draw for us was not seeing the “stars.” The draw was the almost perfectly breaking waves from the outer peaks, all the way into the shoreline and sometimes very near to the pier at the end. That is a good wave for plenty of fun and the major draw for So Cal surfers.

    We had to time our road trips to coordinate with the incoming Southern Hemisphere swells. It only broke during these types of directional swells and the hurricanes off of the Mexican coastlines.
