Kern River & Limestone,
Site for Home Improvement Season Opener
September 22, 1998
Tim Allen's hit comedy series, Home
Improvement, recently completed taping while on location above Kernville,
California. The season's opening episode is a comedic rafting adventure for the
Taylor family on the infamous Kern River. The cast and crew greatly enjoyed
their location shoot while experiencing the beauty of Kern River Valley and it's
natural surroundings. Mr. Allen even autographed and donated his life preserver
and episode script for display at the Kern Valley Museum.
A special "boom boat" was created by local
Sierra South Mountain Sports and Hyside Inflatables who provided outfitting and
consulting services to accomplish the difficult river rafting scenes. We thank
Tom Moore of Sierra South for providing the following photos while on location
in the Limestone area of the Kern River.
