    Yikes!
    They make these things called airplanes. You can get to Nashville or Huntsville in 4 hours for less than the gas costs to drive there.

    The last time I ran that route was in 1980, escaping from Commiefornia after spending several years in a nasty custody fight- - - -which we won!  Merced to Bakersfield to Mojave and points east, all the way to Nashville.  I was driving a 1970 Cadillac Fleetwood and towing an 18 foot 3 axle backhoe trailer, and Mary was following in a 59 Chevy Suburban and towing a Datsun 510 station wagon.  The Caddy/trailer rig weighed nearly 18,000 pounds!  I got 5 MPG for 2500 miles, and Mary's rig got 10!  Gas up every 100 miles!  It would be difficult to shove us back out there with a D-9 Cat!

    Just outside Tallahassee, will be back home at the Berghof sometime tomorrow, but we're taking a slight detour on the way there.

    My cousin and I used to fish in that lake back in the mid-1950's.  He lived about 8 blocks away from it, just a short walk, or an even shorter bicycle ride!
