My Dad (and my Mom by default) was in the Coast Guard in the early-to-mid 60's and they were stationed on the Farallon's for approximately 2-years. When their duty was up the government told them to burn their residence to the ground, so he did.
My Mom said the most exciting thing that happened while they were there was the boat crash---because the owner had just cashed out a ton of money, put it in a boot, and then crashed into the Farallon's. She said they spent DAYS looking for the boot, which nobody found.
Lastly, is a picture of how you got onto the Island. Imagine doing that with your 1-month old child. I have 1100 slides that I've scanned in, and if anybody has an idea for a Gallery, Expose, featured something-or-other, I'd be all ears. My mom is still alive and doing well. I'd like get her involved, b/c this is a part of her past she is fond of, but 47 years removed.
