The Sunbelt Exposition

The Sunbelt Exposition in Moultrie, Georgia, may be the largest Farm Show in the country. It is certainly the most diverse that I've ever attended. There was equipment and services represented for poultry, swine, dairy, beef, bees, alpacas, cotton, soybeans, corn, vegetables, peanuts, tobacco, pine trees, catfish, shrimp, pecans, hay, grass, large farms, small farms, red fish, blue fish -- wait, that's Dr. Seuss -- anyway, maybe you get the picture. I have posted a few of my favorite pictures from the show below. Maybe you can figure out how they fit into Agriculture.

I think this last one is the one that I want. An air boat would be a blast. The only trouble that I see is that in West Texas it would have to have wheels!

How do you like Georgians, and Georgia? I'm curious. Back in the 1830's through the end of the Reconstruction lots of Georgians moved to Texas, so we should have some traits in common.

Hermit: I love Georgia. I think it would be among my top choices for a place to relocate to if ever I do so. My family roots came out of Dekalb County during reconstruction. I'm certain there are many relatives in Georgia but our "black sheep" branch lost the connection when we escaped west. Much of the family history terminates at the burning of the courthouse in Atlanta.

I knew there was a reason I liked you.
