Well, I figured out where it is and will be going by there on Thursday... but in the car. The car is a Honda, does that count?

Is Mrs. Sol going? Maybe you could stuff the Zuma into the trunk... I'd do it, but that probably means it's not a good idea.

I swear! I think I find an out of the way tag that might take some Googlin' and EVERYONE knows about it or finds it instantly. I thought the underbrush was covering the sign well enough to make it at least a little difficult...

Well there go my afternoon plans. I guess it's air conditioning and guitar for me.

Nice grab!

If it makes you feel better, I didn't know where it was.

I sent a FB message to the granddaughter of the man who founded Royal Land and whom I went to school with for many years, and told her we met her uncle and that they really need to save the sign... I've been watching Pickers too much and that sign would be awesome on the wall somewhere as a decor piece!!!

New Tag

Tag Photo


Where Swoosh is hiding (orangish pipe to the left of the gate).


View from the road.


What you would see if you took the long walk in from the gate to the historical site.


The tag is located on a road named after the site. The site itself gained its fame for two events that happened in the mid 60's that put Mississippi into a small group of 5 states in which similar events have taken place. In fact, Mississippi is the only state east of the Mississippi River subjected to such an event. The first site is at White Sands, NM.
