Joe Moore - Flintknapper nearly dies in RV crash - update

Post by Death Valley Dazed » Thu Feb 13, 2020 3:53 pm

Good news, Joe is recovering from his near-fatal RV crash of May 2019 and is now back flintknapping at Furnace Creek Oasis and the Visitor Center. Here's my February 7th interview with Joe.

Ah that's why we didn't see him this last last week of October but did see him last week in March 2019. Guess we will try to visit him when we arrive in five weeks again!.
Never talked to him...didn't know what he was about! They used to do barbecue dinners once per week on that deck.

Is the museum now back to being a museum? When it was a temporary store that is where they put that long time employee out to pasture , so to speak. Kinda of missed the "old timer" in the old ranch store!

I believe it's back to being a museum but I did not actually go inside to check.

Last weekend Joe was sitting in front giving examples and history lessons with his spread of artifacts. The building was not open to the public over this past weekend, but it could have had to do with the rain. Looking in the windows, however, made it seem like it hasn't been opened up for some time.
