Story 338
Ernest Borgnine - I was helping my sister move and we were driving south on highway 5 in California. We had pulled over at the rest stop that overlooks Mt. Shasta. I got to talking with some guy there about my ascent of Mt. Shasta a few years earlier. He seemed familiar but I was tired and couldn't recall who he was. When I returned to the truck my sister said "So what did he say?" I said "What did who say?" She said, "Ernest Borgnine." and it all clicked in. At that very second Mr. Borgnine knocked on my window and wanted me to retell my tale of the climb to one of his traveling companions. He seemed enthusiastic enough to do it himself right then and there. We chatted for some time. Depending on traffic his motor home and our moving truck played leapfrog for about 150 miles before we lost track of each other, but each time he passed us he honked, smiled, laughed and pointed at us. A very nice down-to-earth man who helped us enjoy the passage of time.
