That's some powerful pesticide, then. Nobody has ever raised cotton up here in the Appalachian Mountains, and the tawby worms disappeared up here 20 or 30 years ago. No fire ants here, either. Sure would like to know what killed...

Dlauw, I sold that old CJ5 for parts a couple of years ago. I bought it used and drove it in the snow and up to the mountain camp for 25 years. Hauled many a deer outta the woods tied across the hood. Like a lot of jeeps, though, the frame rusted out so bad that I got scared to drive it. Straight ...

Since the manual transmission seems to be going the way of the dinosaur, I was wondering which transmission most of yall prefer. My old CJ5 had an 8 speed manual and so does my old workhorse Ram 1500. I prefer a manual transmission for off road and going up these mountain trails, and driving in sn...

Would like to have a few roaming around the place, but I don't know if they'll stay off the porches and decks. Free range chickens want to roost on the porch and crap everywhere. If guineas will stay out in the yard and fields and stay off the porch, I'd like to get some. They're great for tick c...
