  • Tonie Seger Passed away may 30th

    For those of us that have had the opertunity to exlorer the Last Chance Canyon and go to the Burro Schmidt Mines may have met Tonie Seger, the owner of the Burro Schmidt Mine. She just had her 95th Birthday party in April of which some of us were invited to by Dave the caretaker. Igofshn, myself and Reese had spent the day exploring the canyons and talking with Larry over at Bickel Camp and then up to the Burro Schmidt mine where we stopped and chatted with Dave and Tonie's son for a couple of hours. We didn't go in to see Tonie on this visit because she was resting. Dave informed us of the big party they were going to throw for her on the 26th, the model t club was coming up. Due to prior engagements none of us made the party.
    I know that Jeepgal's daughter had spent time talking with Tonie and enjoyed her company and looked forward to speaking with her when we went there.
    I have got lots of good stories from her about the history of the area and how things have changed over the years.

    Tonie will be missed- Maybe we could make the Memorial when we find out when it is.

          Just got this message.


          WHAT: MEMORIAL SERVICES FOR THE CARETAKER OF THE BURRO SCHMIDT MINE.

          WHO: TONIE (EVELYN) SEGER. SHE PASSED AWAY MAY 30TH AT 5AM.

          WHEN: SATURDAY JUNE 21, 2003 AT 11AM.

          WHERE: AT THE BURRO SCHMIDT MINE

          REQUESTS: THOSE THAT CARE TO SPEAK, SHARE A STORY OR MEMORY OF TONIE, PLEASE
          DO SO.

          ADDITONAL CONTACT: DAVE AYERS CAN BE REACHED AT 760-963-0281 (since Dave has
          limited time on his cell phone, please be mindful of that)

          CAMPING: THOSE THAT WANT TO COME OUT FRIDAY ARE WELCOME AND CAN CAMP NEARBY.

          Dave mentioned that he has been at the mine for the last 20 years and has
          been a care giver to Tonie for the last 3. He mentioned that the OHV community
          have been wonderful visitors.
          He mentioned that Tonie's ashes will be disbursed at the mine and back in
          Illinois with family.
          When I asked of any requests that Tonie may of had, Dave said she had one
          request, and that was for no one to step on her ashes.

                Ummmm....I'm pretty sure bacon and I are in, it's only like an hour from us (ok, 1 1/2 in the jeep). I think we should meet the non-LA/west/north side people at 138 and palmdale road (thats you tams). All I.E. ppl will probably find that this is the best place to meet. If anyone is interested, I'm draggin bacon to breakfast at the Mountain Top Cafe on 138 for breakfast.....lol. we'll talk about a breakfast time when we figure out what time we all want to get up there.

                        hold on... do you mean for your gym shorts or are you gonna put one in your TJ? If the latter is the case let me know the details. Putting a locker in a 35 that isn't a super 35 is asking for trouble. just my .02.

                          Free Locker being the keyword here . Anything can be made stronger . Trussing the housing and maybe an axle upgrade in the future will be a key factor in making it work and lasting . just my $.03
