Is paved with gold! -well, it cost a lot
Well, after a hard spring and violent summer, the road was virtually impassable to anybody but Ozarkers-born.
Even Brother was having a hard time clambering over the deep gouges (about 1 foot deep) that criss-crossed as they went down.
Now, this bit is a flat and straight part anyway but it was also hard-going. The sportwagon had no problems but that’s because meself.
But mostly we needed chat. –antiquated mining term from when my family moved to the U.S. / Ozarks from Ireland. It’s basically white, toxic cast-off that’s unusable by the mining companies, so locals use it for building roads and yes, toxic. What’s better? We pay for it!
