    This one was easy, but I like it anyhow.

    I'm not an architect but, when I saw this place in Langtry, Texas last year, I knew it wasn't going to be standing very long:

    I was there yesterday, exactly one year later:

    Your cases look nekkid. :deal

    And what a difference a year makes, certainly a different palate of colors for the sky.

    I was there last year, too. Time marches on. Mike, how many miles do you put on your GS every year? You seem to be everywhere.

    They cut and laid the roadbed for a new interstate, then packed up and left.

    Uke, those cases are pretty nekkid 'cause I haven't messed them up. I'm sure that'll change!

    Bomose, I try to be everywhere and my wife wishes I'd try harder. This GSA doesn't have too many miles . . . just crossed 10,000 in Big Bend NP yesterday.

    Where’s that? They really should delay paving til they are ready to open exit to exit.

    It's the "Northern Beltline" in north Jefferson County (Pinson, Alabama). This is the first 2 miles of a proposed @ 35 mile northern loop around Birmingham, AL....this section spans between AL75 and AL79.

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/3...!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d33.7332731!4d-86.6518322

    The entire loop has been in the works for 30 years or so and they finally started construction on this initial section about 5 years ago. Looks like they got the initial cuts, grading and gravel done and when it came time to bridge the two hollows, they decided to pack their toys and go home (the State probably raided the funds). There's no fence, gate or signs, it's completely accessible. At first, it was smooth groomed gravel about 6 inches deep...but now that kids have discovered it, it's been roosted unmercifully.

    Yeah that caution tape, saw horse & cones will keep somebody from getting killed when it collapses.

    Its started to collapse and that's when they put that up, the over hang fell during a recent storm and the city pushed the debris back with a bulldozer so it all looks like a pile of rubble now

    I worked at the Leland Oil Mill. the Leland mill and the Port Gibson mill were owned by the same people,would have to go to the mill in Port Gibson sometimes and work . The Leland mill is all gone now ,the two was very much alike.
