Source Caption: My home in 1978/79. .at what is now the Oxbow Nature Study Area at the end of Dickerson Road in Reno Nevada, but was then a "Hippie Commune" called Truckee RiverRising (one word)

The treehouse. .actually more of a tall stump house. . . was 50 feet from the Truckee River and had seven stained glass windows. .rent was 75 bucks a month, and that included rice, flour, and as many eggs as I could find from the free-roaming chickens . . but the trail to the bathroom a few hundred feet away in the house was pretty treacherous at night. .lol
