Last week I finaly made it to Caribou Ranch. I can't even begin to tell you what an amazing trip it was. All I can tell people when they ask me how it was is that they will see it in the film. I knew that this was a special trip and really wanted to bring my mom. She was nervouse about revisiting this time in her life but in the end agreed to to come. She knew that it would be emotional and (geez) we would be filming it, but she also know she would regret it if she didn't come. The little twist in the story, and the reason we had to make the trip fast, was that the Ranch was in the middle of changing hands. It has been sold. Over the past couple months I had been bugging their offices about getting up there and finaly got a call saying that the keys were switching owners in 14 days and I had better get up there. I scrambled to make arangments. Between the crew, my mom, my DJ schedule and the folks at the ranch it is a mircle that we made it up there. We were literally the very last people to visit Caribou Ranch on the very last day the folks of the ranch would work there. It was emotional for everyone there that day.
I can't wait to share this trip in the film. The guys we meet at the Ranch were so welcoming. Some I had talked with over the phone for years. Others knew my mom and Dad well and they hadn't seen eachother in decades. For now here are some pictures. Enjoy!
Below is a video I took of my mom before we got out of the car to visit the cabin she lived in with my Dad. Password is tkmember
