Trip to Nashville, TN

On the way down I went all the way down I55 down the side of Missouri all the way to the boothill. I recall Dorkweed showing me it was flat and I just couldn't believe how flat it actually is. You could literally trash the level and build your house making sure it was equal length above ground on all sides and it would be level :lol:

I got some pics and 2 of them have this green crap that seems to be a parasite. I don't know if anyone has seen the new (older now I guess) GI Joe movie where the bomb makes everything have that grassy stuff on it before eating it all away, but this stuff was just like that. It covered EVERYTHING. The ground, the trees, it engulfed it. I have no idea what it is.

Another pic is the weird trees I saw in this one spot. At the bottom they flare out like a xmas tree stand does for the xmas tree.

I will put the pics on here but I don't think you can see much so I will also put the links on here and then the pics will pop up full size and you can see everything.

I think those were somewhere around Jackson, TN.

Those weeds/vines/whatever encompassed everything. I didn't get pics of all the times I saw it but there were sections of about 500x500ft where that crap had taken over, and I am talking a forest section.. The trees were completely engulfed along with the ground and everything else, I saw nothing but that stuff, it was insane.

They had a lot of cotton down there, a LOT. There wasn't an inch of ground without a cotton plant on it it seemed. They had this big blocks in the fields that were how they "baled" the cotton. They were huge though, maybe 40ft long. They had special machines that picked them up and loaded them on the truck.

Should have given me a heads up for a stop by the farm. I am about 80 miles southeast of Jackson and about 100 miles southwest of Nashville. Bring your ATV and I can show you around the place. :thumbup2:

Sure is a big difference from your part of "Missery" ain't it??!!!:stuned: Most of the water that falls on the MO Ozarks etc., drains out to the Big Muddy through the boot heel. The only way they can farm it, is to canal the landscape. Believe it or not, that area is "meth central" as far as making the ____. There's a lot of "weird" folks down at the 24 hour fuel stops at 3:30AM when we're getting our coffee and such before heading out to the fields.:stuned:

I believe the green leafy stuff id SUMACK, might have spelled it wrong. It is all over Alabama. I don't have a clue what it is good for.
