Nope, but the story is fascinating. Lots of history here that impacts the way the world we live in today works.
I had no idea how common oil seeps were in California. Back when I was a kid I spent a lot of time on the beach in Carpinteria and always thought the tar I found on the bottom of my feet was from the oil rigs offshore. Turns out the oil was probably coming from the land just down the beach from the house where we stayed. I’d love to go on an oil seep hunt one day up here in the Bay Area.
