  • Is there something in the water in Redwood Valley that makes people weird and wander off?

    • Yes. The people from Redwood Valley drank the kool aid….literally. that is where the saying came from.

    • It wasn’t Redwood Valley where this took place, it was on Chezem Rd….a totally separate area…. and he doesn’t even live here!…but I do and have for 20 years…the only “weird” things that happen out here on our short little road, are by visitors, not inhabitants.

  • Why is Humboldt involved in a person missing from Mendocino?
