Several years ago, I read about a college student who was studying small fur bearers between Lake Tahoe and Susanville.

I recall as a boy that our family would save for our summer vacations in the mountains by saving silver dollars all year. Whenever a silver dollar or "Cartwheel" would show up in the cash register of Dad's store, he would take a one dollar bill out of his wallet and replace the coin with it. The accumulated cartwheels would go into a canvas money bag saved for use on vacation. We would regularly fill up the tank on our jeep for three or four dollars!
