We all woke up hungry and ready to get moving. The showers at the campground were all under construction so no showers for us. We also discovered our tent was covered in sugar ants, they were inside and out which made it impossible to get rid of them.
We decided to strap the tent down to the roof outside of the rain bag. It needed to be cleaned when we got home and we didn’t need the ants finding their way into our suitcases while we drove. We loaded up the car for the last leg of the trip then headed out of Eufaula, Alabama on Highway 6 toward Albany, Georgia to catch I-75 down to Florida. Our trip is almost over.
Along the highway through South Georgia we saw mile after mile of kudzu covering everything. It is amazing that anyone would have thought it was a good idea to plant this stuff. It costs around $500 million a year in lost crops and attempts to control it’s growth. I’ll bet back in it’s day Kudzu sounded like as good of an idea as Universal Healthcare sounds to some people now, while the rest of us can only warn of the damage control and expenses we will all have to deal with later.
