Love hearing these stories from back in the day.. :joint: :grin:
I'm new to this forum just wanted to say HEY . :)
I was 16 yrs old in 82 working for Calif. Coolers :) .. I quit smoking in 92' from a bad on the job injury . I always tooka quick hit off the weeds to taste it by 95ish I never seen anyone w/ the goods . My Buddy in Humboldt started the strain Purple Urkle , pretty good stuff . When I was injured om the job I had a handful of his fav seeds growing hydro w/ Co2 , I hit it to taste but I sold it all. That was the last time I smoked really 80s style dank .. So been back in the game for 5-6 yrs now and I've been very disappointed to say the least . Do si do , sunset sherb. he told me to grow is the closest I've gotten to any kind of Kind so far ... So my Buddy Z and I in the 80s used to hang out at the Dead Shows . Can I ask you guys has anyone grown out that Uncle Fester #18 skunk from 2018 ? I'm about to buy the newer version .. Uncle Fester 18 , sure hope its that Biker Skunk I used to smoke and all my Buddys had :) .. uhggg ..

Did any of you fine RIU members ever find anything close to the RKS? :bigjoint::bigjoint::bigjoint::bigjoint: I’m going to go skunk hunting myself in a couple months.

Here is all I can find on Uncle Festers Skunk #1.
https://en.seedfinder.eu/strain-info/OG_Skunk_Nr1/Master_Thai/
I’m not sure if that is what I’ve got or if it’s actually the UFS#18. I’m with you, I miss the old skunk from my teen years. Probably more of a nostalgic feeling more than anything else.

There is one old school roadkill skunk elite clone from the 80's called Shoreline. You'll probably find some strains called that or what not, but the real cutting of it is in the south surprisingly, Texas, Louisiana etc. By now I'd think it would be found elsewere but I am not sure. First time I had it I was genuinely shocked at the aroma. Pure skunky foulness that smacks you right in the face, baby shit, body odor, putrid, yet pungently earthy/slightly piney with a hint of candied lemons at the end. Its a multiple layered aroma. It's the loudest and smelliest strain I have ever had (when grown optimally). More so than any og or fuel type of strain I've had so far, in terms of foulness and the immediate smell of putrid skunk/poop. Sativa dominant, fast and trippy, paranoid then heavy and relaxing high, ultra sticky, flowers a bit longer (10-12 weeks, I believe). Hopefully some people on the coasts have this cut, it needs to be crossed in an inbred line imo! It's always a rare treat when growers who have the real original cut grow it out, let alone share it, the real deal can be spotted a mile away not only by its smell, but I can always tell by the bud structure as well. I really want some now. There's some info online about it, it's akin to how og kush started in a way.
Had some like 18 years ago pure burnt rubber funk

Hey there. It is not a road kill skunk as I understand it but an old skunk line that is related to the Hells Angels. Nature Farm has a few interesting cuts that he has crossed it to. Also take Justin_C’s advice here and check out Blueskies Vienna and his pheno hunters packs of old skunk genetics from Oldtimer1. An example from one of his earlier releases reminded me alot of a description from the Nature Farm. And, I think Katsu is about to release an 80s skunk x romulan if I am not mistaken. That one looks like it’s got your name on it lol. Happy hunting!
 
This is definitely how I remember it too, atop all that, there’s this smell that reminds me of when you pull weeds that gets on your hands and has this sweaty sour sharpness that kind of underpins the skunk smell. It’s hard to identify because I have really only smelled it on those regular yard weeds, but it kind of smells like I remember my grandpas work cowboy hat smelling like lol
The burnt rubber is so spot on!!!
I’m growing some corpse flower nature farm genetics it has the smell of how your hands smell after pulling weeds... I couldn’t describe the smell until I read this

I went thru so much job related , I did taste goodz thru the 90's 2000's , but it was like GDPurple , or bubblegum . Not the poop I was used to ., Of course one my best buds Z . would come around STKn. CA. (Our hometown lol).. from Humbodlt w/ the cup winners , last shit for 20 yrs they ran Purple Erkle , but from what I read the danky stuff usually has that 80's goopy Skunk mixed in the strain(s) ..,. BUt I might have taken 10 hits in 10 yrs , so I know one thing when you' ve had it you know it when its there :) . Last year my Buddy smoked and kicked down sum Alaskan Thunderfuk , From Happy Camp lol.. it was good took me back to the goods or I could say close enough , Shit my buddy /neighbor here brought me sum White Diamonds resin ,, oh it turns decent weed into skunky w/ just a few sprinkles :) . That and sum Heineken and Chess and we were smiling lol ..

Blue sky Vienna isn’t the answer, read back. Reports Say it’s not the skunk folks are looking for. JJ at top dog recently said nope after running them. Every once in a while someone with no experience comes in and says the same thing that was said above.
What personally would you suggest digging into to try to find my dad some 95-‘99 skunk flavors he grew when I was a tot?

of course it isnt exact but it is made from va skunk 91 and lime skunk. both from sk 1? its not as loud but has plenty of awesome skunky funky smell and flavor. lime green color and stays white hair along time. it almost would never 100 % finish and that also reminds me of my old 90s skunk. this is the only skunk ive ever kept.

There’s work being done but as of right now that expression is not in circulation or known to be found.
Todd McCormick has some skunk 1 open pollination beans for sale that contain the genetic but an f2 has to be made and hunted to find the pheno. Sam the skunk man literally grew out over 10,000 seeds to find and propagate the original skunk that we’re all jonesing over today, make no mistake this will/can be done but it’s going to take a while.

That's the "authentic seeds" stuff right?

The closest thing to roadkill skunk that's still around are Sour D, OGs, and the chems
I’ve grown sour D and some smelly skunk no.1’s from sensi seeds, I thought the skunk no.1s were smelly, but nothing compared to a 91 chemdawg pheno I grew the year after!

I know what your saying about that pungent skunk smell capt, this chemdawg had that skunky/diesel, next level smell that got right into the back of your nose...
Hard to describe until you smell it for your self.
Next level shit!

Skunk no.1 from sensi is not the original skunk no.1, but it is a nice plant to grow and I recommend everyone try it.
