"Huell Howser travels to the 2002 National SPAAMFAA (Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America) winter convention in San Bernardino. This get-together was a wonderful place to get a glimpse of our state's fire-fighting history. There were all kinds of apparatus from small hand pumpers to elaborate steam-driven engines from the turn of the century. The highlight of the day was Dave Hubert's lovingly restored rig, the e;Reno #1, which served the city of Reno, Nevada from 1902 to 1922. Dave pulled out all the stops and did a "full steam" and a run behind special horses that are trained just for this purpose."--Www.calgold.com

Next its off to Temecula and the former ranch of Erle Stanley Gardner, author of the Perry Mason Novels. On this spot stands the largest California Live Oak in the world. ... It is estimated to be at least 800 years old. This tree is so big that most people think it is a grove of trees. We end the show in Kings Canyon National Park at the General Grant Tree. This tree is the third largest tree in the world. ... What makes this tree so special is that it is our nations official Christmas tree. The tree was officially dedicated on April 28, 1926 by President Calvin Coolidge."--Www.calgold.com
