GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A buckskin-clad man who says there are too many "nuts and flakes" in Southern California passed through Grants Pass on Monday with his wife and two donkeys on a trek toward a new life.
Three Feathers Reed and Canary Kate Reed, dressed in the traditional clothing of the pioneers, are on their way from San Bernardino, Calif., to Yamhill, Ore.
Three Feathers compared the Southland to a cereal bowl full of "nuts and flakes." Canary Kate said Oregonians seem to have a respect for the environment and an interest in preserving their heritage.
The couple, who left shortly after their Oct. 20 wedding, carrying everything they owned on the donkeys, expect to reach Yamhill in late spring.
