The first photo I could find of the chair was taken in 1966 at the Ten-X campground outside of the Grand Canyon. We had a popup camper and went west on a 6 week trip and Gerry's sister Darlene came with us. Darlene, Gerry, Barbara and Cassie are in this photo with Gerry sitting in one of the original chairs.
It reappeared once again on an Easter camping trip to Sun-N-Fun campground in Sarasota, FL in 1969. Gerry and I are enjoying some adult beverages while Barbara is taking the photo.

Barbara & Henry came up to the cabin and spent a week visiting us there. Tom was the guest of honor who sat in the chair this year. We enjoyed sitting around a campfire burning some of the huge amount of firewood we have up there.

If you have read the blog this far expecting something other than the story of the chair, then I am sorry if I disappointed you. This story is like the Shaggy Dog story that is a favorite of Darlene.
Yes, Barbara it is THE CHAIR. That is all for the night and I hope Gerry leaves the Florida pictures in for the final edit.
Good night all and stay warm if you are back in the midwest or eastern part of the U.S.
