My son and I are heading out in a few minutes. Were traveling from Ypsilanti MI. to Jasper AL (actually Pinedale Place).

Don't know if were driving straight through. If we stop, we don't know where yet. I have a "meh" back. We will drive as long as my back/sleepiness allows it. Goal is 7-8 hours.

My boy is 18, he is hopefully doing a solid chunk of the driving.

I'll try to take lots of hillybilly pictures!!

94-69-65 ? or 75-24-59 ? how 'bout 75-71-65 ? All pretty nice routes, done each one a bunch in my lifetime. You'll end up about 3 hours due west of me & MrTree (no, that's not a song....)

Drive safe.

get a 5 hour energy shot at piggly wiggly. You'll be fine for the last minute, change the friggin' plan go straight to Roswell and the extra 3 hour drive to play at the Hitching Post for the all-nighter 3-way with Tree and BG. That should be a song, right?

The only good thing about the trip is visiting with my father whom I hadn't seen in three years. Jake and I drove straight through on SUN. MON. morning about 4 am I wake up and start vomiting. That goes on for about 6 hours with a small fever and chills. Then it starts coming out all ends..........fucking horrible. Anything I ate through yesterday came out very quickly one way or another. So much for fried chicken, fried crappie, home made wine/beer/whiskey. I usually put on 5 pounds down here. I'm pretty sure I lost weight this trip.

The game plan was to leave this morning. We (Jasper Alabama) got hit with 6 inches of snow. To the north of us they got 12 inches. Oh, and little to none snow removal. While I'm figuring out what were going to do my son informs me that he is now sick.........Were staying for another day or two. Stranded in the snow. Hopefully he gets through it with less misery than I did.

Here are some pictures.

We thought it would be funny to send this to momma shortly after we left Michigan

6 gallons of home made Black Cherry Wine that we then bottled. Jake bottled and I corked them.

I'm bringing back about 20-30 bottles of wine, 2 bottles of corn whiskey, 12 pack of wheat beer. Dad makes it all.

I cut a bunch of antlers off a couple of racks my dad had. My dog loves chewing on these. They are the only thing that lasts more than a day (each one lasts about 4 months). Their about 15 bucks a pop at Tractor Supply.

HillyBilly Glazed Ham. He buys the ham and has them slice it. They he coats it in honey and brown sugar. Holy shit was this good.

If the boy is feeling better tomorrow we'll come home. If not, we delay our trip home until he is better.

no comments on the hillbilly ham..........surprised, lol.

We were supposed to leave yesterday. My boy appears to have the virus now. Might leave today if he feels better. Otherwise it'll be tomorrow...I am definitely ready to be home. Other than hanging out with dad. Not been a good trip. Everyone has been sick, snow storm.........could be worse.

Hey. I thought the only people still making their own booze live in Saudi! Nice pics. Nice looking family, pretty wife, too much going good to let snow and ass faucet keep you down. When are you playing cards?

i thought 'hillbilly ham is awesome' went without saying... :) Antlers also our kid's fav chew item, but I refuse to pay hostage prices most places charge. Couple of local places have 'em at reasonable cost.

Sorry 'bout your minor downer of a trip, but glad you're feeling better. Safe travels home....

Interested in a trade? What size dog do you have? I have a standard one like they sell at tractor supply, aproximately 8 inches long for 15 bucks. I have a thicker, larger antler that would probably be valued at their crazy prices at 30 bucks or more. More suited for a larger dog.

If your interested in a trade. I could send you an Antler in a small flat rate box. You could send me cards, chips, ect....... of equal vale. Fuck it. I would ship the antler to you first, and then we could decide on the value?
