Now that's one funny video. It's hard for me to visualize people living like that but having spent a year in Mississippi I know it's real.

Mike, is there anything like that on the Columbia, maybe down ASD's way? The guy in the push boat looked unhappy.....until lunch.

The Wolf river in Wisconsin, down near where it empties into lake Butte de Mortes is literally full of those old shanties. They generally are not as big as the one in the video but everything else is the same.

Great stuff, Parks!

Sure missed you at the Ft. Pierce gathering last month. We were talking about you. Were your ears burning?

Great to see you posting!

Hop, thanks for that!

I'm a banjo picker, that would be so much fun!

To hell with my dream of trading up to a Fleming, I have a new mission to accomplish!
