    No turkeys attacked the truck, but a chicken sandwich did get in through the window. I took care of it on the drive up to Pallisades Park in Blount County, AL yesterday before enjoying the views. Tha hat is a Dobbs. According to the tag inside the model is the "Vernon" and it carried a MSRP of $22.50.
     
  2. Too bad you didn't shoot video. You could add the disclaimer,

    "No wild turkeys were harmed in the making of this film."

    This is what the woods are supposed to look like.

    This is what much of it looks like after a storm/tornado took out many of the trees last Spring.

    This weekend’s flooding of the creek did leave this nicely polished piece of pine driftwood.

    Royal Stetson for a visit to Horse Pens 40, a geological site of pre-Columbian Native American significance thats now a park and campground. Definitely a cool place to explore. There's an amphitheatre there, too, among the giant boulders, where they have a big annual bluegrass festival.

    You know you're in Southern California when this is parked in front of a local convenience store.

    That it is!
     
  16. On Lafayette Street @ 13th, Saint Joseph, Mo is where what would become the Jesse James death house stood 139 yrs ago today. Jesse James Hill as it has become known has since been lowered more than 50 ft in elevation but it is said that in 1882 looking West across the river you could see what is now Hiawatha, KS. All that remains at the original lot today is this marker.

    I thought my 1910's black Stetson BRE with Fray sweat appropriate for the occasion.

    Between 1882 & ~1940 the death house was moved at least twice. It's location since then is next to the Patee House Museum, & just 2 blocks from the original lot on Lafayette Street.

    I don’t get afield much anymore but when i do i like to dress like this and wear a hat fitting of the local population.
    Stetson No.1 skinny ribbon served well and stayed put through several fall on my a** adventures as Pops spent the day with Son on a beautiful trout stream that humbles my skills most times. Yesterday the Son was humbled.
    Be well.

  18. Alright, B! Nothing else like landing a beautiful native fish! I hope that this is the first of many such trips this year. :)

    What a great day! Your picture is the epitome of retirement and should be the official picture of TFL Hat forums. Fantastic!
