‘Anyone Traveling on Hwy 36 Is in Jeopardy of Being Pulled Over’
The luscious visuals of Emerald Magazine usually lure the reader in with promises of relaxation but this month’s letter from editor Christina DeGiovanni offers a warning to readers heading into Trinity County. DeGiovanni writes, “[A]nyone traveling on Hwy 36 is in jeopardy of being pulled over.”
She relates that last month she was headed east from Humboldt County to deliver stacks of Emerald Magazine to distributors in Trinity when she was pulled over by several Forest Service rangers. In past years we’ve heard multiple instances of the Forest Service pulling over people in the remote areas of northern California reportedly searching for marijuana and cash but rarely are we able to get any witnesses to talk on the record. And, it’s almost as rare to get any information from law enforcement. (And if we do it’s pretty limited.)
DeGiovanni’s tale is similar to those of witnesses who have spoken to us off the record. Here’s a screenshot of part of her letter but you really owe it to yourself to check out the magazine.
