Heller High Water (12/16/2009)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.

I've been all over Alabama andthe north GeorgiaMountainshave some crazies, butbar none themost backwards place I've ever been was Boone County, KY. We go deer huntingnear thetown of Boonevilleand stay witha friend that moved there from Cinncinatito... lets just sayfor a change of lifestyle.It's a completely differentworld.When we got there our friend took us 4 wheeler riding andbefore we left he made sure to let usknow thatif we run into anyone in the woods to make sure they knowwe werestaying with him.I really didn't think anything about it. Then at dinner that night he let usknow that deer hunting is a year around activity there day or night andthat the only source of income for most of the county was growing pot. It's the largest crop in the county and the DEA would come in and cut down half the fields each year. They would cut it all to prevent a war. Also no game warden would dare enter the county since the last 2 were shot. Also at dinner that night a guy came over who was about 30 with his wife and son. The girl was 14 and the baby was 2. It's a crazy place where law enforcement really does not exsist. Everyone handles everything in their own way. For example, there was a drunk in town that would go arond and knock on peoples doors and if a woman answered the door he would drop trawl and chase them around the house then run off. He's dead now. Most poeple there do not get social security numbers and to further prove how backwards it is the closest Walmart is over an hour away. It was just a place where you never feel comfortable, but the poeple were very nice as long as they knew who you are and why you were there. The whole time I'm there I was thinking that anyone I met would not think twice about killing me and I would never be found. Haven't been back since a man walked in my buddies house and took a shot at him.

Chrysler, Alabama, back before they paved the road.

There was a little pine floored general store that was also the post office. The flag was on pine sapling that had been cut down and stripped of branches leaning up against the tin roof - still had the bark on it.

Half way between Eliska and Little River. A neat drive really, head down Monroe Co Rd 1 south from Perdue Hill and go towards Bay Minette. Lots of woods. You are on the edge of the Alabama River bottoms where the bears live, cougars maybe.

A small community called "the Globe" in N.C. 6 miles south of Blowing Rock. Moonshine, cloggin girls, hillbillys, no running water for most of the inhabitants, I had a spring that flowed into a big concrete tank, that gravity fed my house down the hill. I loved that place.

Damn right Skatr Jim - that's the place

My wife is from Pine Hill. Her brother took us out there. That's a locals only place if there ever was one. It's a good place. I had to drive the only time we went, so I kept it pretty tame. But....I had a car load of drunks swervin down county roads on the way home. Good times.

Baker, FL.



Had a job up there. Wasn't a single pickup truck that didn't have some type of camo "accessory", if not painted all camo, and to go along with it, at least 5 nascar stickers, and weirdest thing was, every one had a dog cage in the bed with a couple dogs in it. Weird.



And the ocal resturaunt had pictures on the walls of black guys lynched. FenderBender was there!

angus_cow_doctor (12/16/2009)Weogufka, AL....

I took a shortcut from Sylacauga back towards clanton one time. The GPS showed roads that looked ok, but as I drove, they got smaller, and smaller...... and smaller.............

I was on a one lane pigtrail when I rolled into the big town of Weogufka. I was HONESTLY scared to stop, and I grew up in places that were pretty sketchy.

Then I went through some Gap-o-the-mountain place that made Weogufka look like a metropolis. I have NEVER been so happy to see Clanton, AL....

I saw someone posted about Repton, AL. Believe me when I say that Repton is a booming city compared to where I went that day. I never went back!
You're seriously dissing my neck-o-th-woods there Doc. I grew up in Sylacauga, well actually Winterboro, (which may rankin the polls-we had a school and gas station.) I am very familiar with Weogufka, Fayetteville, Millerville, Delta, Alpine, Kymulga, and some I truly have forgetten for obvious reasons. But yes, you are right, of all the places Weogufka ranks pretty low. When we would go there to play basketball, the Coach would warn us "as soon as the game is over, get your gear, stay together, and get on the bus as soon as possible." There was always drama.

Won't mention any specific city, but ANY Walmart in the country on the 3rd of the month! Anyone else ever experience this or was it just me and some very bad timing on my part?

My second choice would be Dulac, Louisiana at the end of Pogie season. I used to sit in the "Dulac-Dat" sipping a coldie with my white shrimping boots on, (the white boots were cheap insurance keeping me from getting my head caved in for no reason)..............
