Although I was born in FL, I was raised in Alabama. I left there in 1976 for the USAF, returned in 1980 for an engineering degree and left upon graduation in 1985 when my services weren’t needed in Birmingham. I was optioned out to another location for work which turned out to be another adventure in my life.
I am very proud of my state for a variety of reasons and this trip only confirmed that the people here are warm, generous and deeply caring even for strangers in funny red kayaks.
Despite that, I fully acknowledge that AL still has its fair share of rednecks.
The following pictures, while taken from a distance should prove this.
Don’t have dock? Use an old pontoon boat:
How do you get down to the water? Use a ladder of course:
Need to move your grill to the campsite? No truck? Put a young-un in the trunk and he can hold it in place:
Again, I love the people in AL – I just found these to be amusing.
