Out for a spin

Cool, thanks for sharing. The town I grew up in was Haysville Kansas. While I was a kid, it was called the Peach Capital of the World. There were thousands of trees in huge orchards. I worked at one when I was in my early teens.
If you go to Haysville now, I don't think you would find a single peach tree.
It is believed that the oil companies pumped salt water underground to extract more oil which killed off all the peach trees along with thousands of the huge elm trees in that area.
I used to go out in the summer, sit in those peach trees and eat them all day. Wonderful memories. Larry
