A real sad day for many of us. Had the pleasure a couple of times in the Sacramento Airport to say hi and to offer a heartfelt thanks for his work and how much I look forward to all of his shows and series.
He will be sorely missed. RIP Huell.
Yep. Learned a bunch about California from his shows.
"Hey Louie! get a close-up of THIS! Amazing!"
Yep. You would have hit it off with him 27, LOL!
I have the DVD of when he came to my native town,lol. Sad to see him go. This is not "Amazing".
It wasn't just state parks or places, he visited businesses, fairs, festivals, and featured the most obscure things you could think of like an episode I saw about how they used to harvest ice up in Truckee and then send it down on the rails for people to use in their "ice boxes" back in the day. And it also told how the railroad built snow sheds up in the Sierras to protect the trains from avalanches. His shows were extremely interesting and informative.
That being said, I always thought he was <gay. His exaggerated speaking style, and quirky flamboyance not to mention some of his wardrobe choices that were a little too form-fitting were giveaways. But he kept his private life private, which is not the norm nowadays, and I respected him for that. It's very sad because California lost its biggest fan.
