…B.J & D.L.: 1 Rednecks: 0
Not A Real Timeline Of My Life: Part 6 September, 1968 to May, 1969: Fourth term at Hobarts, at the San Francisco Campus (which is actually a few miles down the peninsula from San Francisco). This term sees many guest speakers, such as USA President John Kennedy, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, author Isaac Asimov and BFE astronauts Angelina Cho and Russ Marshall. Other highlights include the hippie invasion (AKA the Summers of Love), a concert in Oakland by The Beatles, the foiling of a complex kidnapping plot, the discovery of a mysterious criminal organization, two small earthquakes and young Doc losing his virginity.
Summer, 1969: The big event here comes when Doc, who is spending the month before fifth term in New Hampshire with avylou and her family, convinces several of his friends to go to the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival. Great fun is had and nobody’s parents are the wiser…until about a year later when the movie comes out.
September, 1969 to May, 1970: Fifth term at Hobarts, at the Montreal, Quebec campus. This year is marked by the arrival of many students from the other Hobarts school. (Hobarts runs three schools each year at three different campuses. Every few years, they transfer students from one school to another, just to keep things interesting) Things go smoothly this year for Doc…which pretty much means he has very few detentions and no actual encounters with the police. He also learns French, bringing his total number of spoken languages up to 14.
Summer, 1970: Doc gets his first car. On June 1 leaves home with his cousin, Rob, and some friends on a roadtrip. They come back five weeks later, on motorcycles. They don’t talk much about the trip, except to say it was “totally fun”.
