Georgiana, Al

About 8 years ago I had a club there and we were eating lunch at a place called Grandmas and some black people walked in and I think it was the owner and some city official like the mayor were sitting and talking with me and my dad. The owner said they should know better than that. She gets up and walks over and made them get take out. I was still living in Miami and had no idea that stuff still took place.

Garbo (12/15/2009)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?
Cross City makes my top 5 also! We built a Shell station there years ago and it was an interesting town. The traffic would seem to pick up from 10pm to about 3am. The town seemed to be supported by the State prison and Timber(and maybe a few other things too!) There was a Cobra research faculityjust North of the school....

I grew up in Jay, hey, do I need say more? But, while hunting up near Tensaw, just sw of there and looking for our dogs one evening, me and a friend of mine ran up on a few houses. No power lines in there either. There were a few kids out in the front playing volleyball.Two tall fenceposts and a few pieces of rope tied together for a net and a gallon milk jug for a ball. Just after passing there we passed, (very close I might add), and old Olds 88 with a big buck tied on the hood and 8 people on the inside. There is a church there that still has the rings and shackles in the balcony where slaves were kept during services. Seen that myself. Church is still there.

Skatrjm - are you referring to that old red barn bar up near Pine Hill, AL?

If so - I agree, but it's a damn fine place

Somewhere in North GA. My brother, wife and friends have been hiking the Appalachian trail, section by section for the last year and a half. This brings you to places worse than Deliverance. Heller High Water Mate can attest to this. On one of our last trips up we had a group of 6 in the Land Cruiser heading to a part in the trail where we left of last. Well the map we had a section where the road went behind the map legend (later we found out the road split behind the map legend) well 30 or so miles later and a gas light to boot we were DEEP in the GA mountains and came up on a fork in the dirt road were a small make shift village appeared. We stopped and knew at that point we were way lost, a car pulled up and I decided to do the not so typical man thing and ask for directions. Mainly because the crew in the car was really giving me a hard time. When I walked up they mumbled something along the lines of "son are you lost?". With out saying a word I turned around walked back to the Cruiser got in and told them they said go back the way you came. We laughed the rest of trip about that. The Appalachian Trail has some really strange characters on and around it. We ended up finding the trail but some of the fellow hikers were a bit nervous to say the least.

Not sure where the picture is from, but I grew up in MN and hunting there we'd hang deer. It is the fastest way to cool / freeze them. Only during above normal temps would you need to worry about the meat and butcher it or take it in for processing immediately. Normally you'd have a venison popsicle in short order.

Avery, Idaho

I spent a summer there in 1969 with an uncle who was a forest ranger, there were more bears than people living in the area. Beautiful country and the best trout fishing you could ever imagine.
