Caller made a parking complaint at Point. She said she was blocked in when someone parked behind her, and there was already a car in front of her.
The juicy stuff continued: three drive-offs from gas stations, lost wallets, and a mysterious whistler on the Onion River (hiker "said she heard whistling on the other side of the hill, and said 'whistle if you need help,' and head whistling again.)
Just wait until Fishermen's Picnic this weekend...things will get even crazier!
