  1. The beauty of the moment was awesome as I did not know of the destruction. I can still picture it in my minds eye tho 26 1/2 years later.
  2. Remember it quite well. I lived just off Mill Plain in East Vancouver. Traveled all over the Pac. NW back in '79 and '80 for Chry. Corp.

  5. Tommie : Congrats on quitting smoking. Bout time. I quit in '82 after a Neuro. Doctor told me I was going to stroke or die very, very soon. Needless to say I believed him. I'm in the process of losing weight now myself. Had a BMI ( body mass index ) of 34. I was getting pudgy. 5' - 10" with 44 waist. Being single isn't really all it's cracked up to be at times. I've been single 3x's since I was 20; trust me - there's more to life.

  7. We heard no sound. Wind was at our backs I may have gotten up on the tailgate of my pickup. 77 Chev. 1/2 ton. I have some more pics. I'll see if they are suitable for posting.
  8. Pretty much so. Cheap camera tho. We were camping, CG helo. came over us so we got out of the small canyon we were in and at the top we could get radio reception - we learned of the eruption. That was about 9:00 am. so we headed toward St. Helens. Found a high logging road and started taking pics at about 9:15 or 9:20am. Ran out of film, drove back to Vancouver, got bucket chicken, film, friend and back to the high road. Late that afternoon started hone and came down thru Cougar. Thats when we got in the ash problems. Hell of a mess. Hope you enjoyed. Lotsa memories.
  9. Hope this works for me - been a while. These are original photos that I took that Sunday in May 1980. http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i105/jamekwilson/StHelensMay1980.jpg
  10. In the ash plume, it was amazing watching it boil and all the lightning that was flashing. That night when we got back home we learned of all the destruction. Have quite a few photos from that day. 26 years hasn't been real hard on them. I'll see if I can get some good enough to post on this thread. Loved living in WA. Especially no state income tax.
  11. Should have been with me and my late wife that Sunday morning back in May, 1980. We were camping about 7 miles South West of St. Helens. Made for some beautiful photos that morning about 9:30am. Just glad we camped where we did. I was living in Vancouver, WA. then. Moved to PA. that Thanksgiving - that put me near 3 Mile Island. Just my luck I guess.
