Default Most Backwoods Country Place You have ever Been?

Cross City Florida.

It is a small town on US19 just south of the Big Bend area of Florida. Years ago I went through there during the fall and Deer season had just started, and school was getting out as I went through town. Wow. I think ever single student had a pickup and dogbox. It also looked like the school was sponsering a dog drive after school. Something to see.....

Great Place.

Where you been?

you sure go deep in the woods to watch kids getting out of schooloke. I went there many times around that bend from Jacksonville in Hydraulic sales, I was told Perry used to be the capital for drug importing in Fl. Actually i was down south of lake ockachobee just a few years back and it seemed like it was still the late 70's. LOL

Grand Isle, LA...

4 of us showed up a couple years agoto meet a Captain for an offshore trip. He was late. In the meantime a real time Cajun showed up trying (we think) to sell us live shrimp. NONE of us, including a man who was born and raised here in P'cola had ANY idea what he was saying to us... LITERALLY, not a WORD!!!

We knew we weren't in Kansas anymore...

Wheelwright, KY

I did a job at a prison there and the prison was pretty much the only thing in that town. It was a thirty mile trip from the main highway that wound through the hollows. I saw the poorest living conditions imaginable. For thirty miles it was nothing but shacks with yards full of garbage. The road ended at the prison.

Sometimes I wish I lived there, I am sure life is much more simple.

Conway, Arkansas. You would think that you have turned back the hands of time by 100 years. It lies southwest of Branson, Missouri approximately 60 miles, on the Buffalo River.

There is a working grist mill, water operated.They have a blacksmith and leather shop. And, it is not unusual to see someone traveling by horseback or in a horse drawn wagon. Some of the people kind of reminds me of the movie "Deliverance". And, they close the school for the first week of deer season - no lie.

A gas station in Mississippi, it still had pumps with the numbers that roll, but the wierdest thing was the bathroom it was plywood added on to the outside of the store and they had a kitchen trashcan screwed to the wall as a stand up urinal, there was a PVC drain out the bottom of the trashcan that went out the back of the shed and dumped onto the ground!!!

Oh and not to mention the store was kinda like other convienience stores except they only had 1-2 of each item, 1-2 snickers bars, 1-2 beanie weenies, 1-2bottles of oil etc. etc. etc.

Fackler Alabama. Just north of Hollywood off of HWY 72. Probably about 60 people live there if you can define the limits. Was a NICE country store, groceries, hardware, farming supplies but the owner opened up a truck stop out on the 4 lane and closed the store. There was a post office, hotel (who would stay in it I have no idea), and the railroad runs right through the "town". Several old abandoned buildings (store fronts). REAL country with small farmsnear Sand Mountain and partially bounded by Mud Creek (part of Lake Guntersville). GREAT BBQ restaurant that was featured in Southern Livingabout 2 miles away.
