    Next leg of journey is drive from Napa Ca to Seattle Washington with a Stop off at Mt Lassen Area then up to Portland then Seattle. Will take pics and plan on some random drone flights.

    Glad to be out of the City.

    @Skkin - this is the article

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.084927b5fd8d

    Well, it will be interesting to see how the political parties adapt to the change in demographics, but that's another story.

    -------

    While in the US, I took a train ride from DC to the mountainous part of Maryland, where another friend lives. Very beautiful countryside. Friend took me for a drive, and I felt like singing Take Me Home, Country Road at the top of my lungs.

    As a tourist, I was surprised at how large the Wal-Marts and other ordinary shopping centers were. There were also those golf buggy-like shopping carts that were used mainly by (ahem) overweight people. I also had a taste of American suburbia - the ones normally seen in TV shows & movies. It was interesting...

    White trailer trash is an awesome spectacle and the further you go into the middle US the crazier they get. It's an entire different society and one well worth a visit.

    Watch Kalifornia with Brad Pitt, if you haven't already, K-Pop.


    Also featuring a great song by a relatively small Irish group called Therapy?

    A good place to observe this species is to head to a local Walmart.

    Indeed. Those are the deplorables.

    ^^^ Think that kid is Charley Boorman of The Long Way Round fame. His dad was the director I think.

    I will be driving through Redding California. It has some top notch trailer trash parks loaded with meth heads that hang out in the Indian Casinos. I use to fly fish on the Trinity river for Steelhead and German Brown trout. I stopped because the Backwood redneck deliverance types I'd see living under tarps.

    Lake Shasta sure is beautiful though.

    Some talk of the backwardness of Thais living out in the rice country. If you want to see some really wild stuff do a trip to "Dem hills in Tennessee" or the Bayou in "Weeziana" That's some trippy folk right there.

    Half right I think Luigi. John Boorman was the Director, but the banjo kid was Billy Redden

    Just went and looked (at the risk of incurring tomcats wrath) - and apparently Boormans boy was in the movie, playing the role of "Charlie Gentry" (John Voights son).

    Took a ride into downtown today early this morning to hit some balls at the Napa Golf course with my Dad.







    Weather was perfect and hot air balloons were coming down from Calistoga. In last pic I was sizing up that 450yd drive to hit that balloon with my Wood...HAHA
