Dams I Have Worked On- 1
Each of the dams listed on this page I talked the property
owners into building the dams and park facilities(nearly all)
and then sell the project to the government or agency
wanting it. This was done to get around the Sierra Club's
extortion demands that had been preventing the projects for
years. Most of the property owners were friends of mine and
were outraged by the Sierra Club's extortion of public money
and who would refuse a cute kid 9-13 years old(me) who
was on TV every week kissing girls and was more popular
than Elvis and presidents and more? I was more than a
pretty face- I did nearly all the camping spaces and building
pads and interior roads and boat ramps rough in with a
small bulldozer. I liked getting on the huge bulldozers down
in the canyons moving junk. The general contractor for these
dam projects did it out of spite for the Sierra Club and the
Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy who fired on
his men and me sometimes. He was wealthy- helping people
was his hobby and passion.
