Let's see how good y'all are. In my last several posts, I've given you the hints to piece together within a hundred miles of where we're going.

The Promised Land

OK, you wouldn't happen to be going to Arkansas, or Maine, or Louisiana, or maybe South Carolina . . . . would you????

My guess is South Carolina.

Elvis is mentioned, so maybe somewhere near Memphis. I have a vague memory there's a religious theme park somewhere, and that could be the promised land, but for other than religious reasons, Dollywood pops into my mind (the lower, primitive brain part) and isn't that in Tennessee too? If you like country music, Nashville could be the promised land. Enough speculation.

Sorry, guys (and girls), I just showed Marie how to multi-quote. I may have created a monster!

Gene,

I believe you are thinking of Graceland.

The old TV show, “Promised Land” shot some in Natchez, but it is farther to Tupelo than I thought. That was my line of reasoning, but wish I had checked the distance first.

One more shot

Would you happen to be going to a place between two lakes? And a river runs through it . . . sort of?

Maybe that was a little to cryptic. I was thinking Canaan, Florida near the St. John's River. Where ever you two go, I wish you the best. I'll just go back to my corner now.

There is a river, sort of, sometimes. There are also several lakes, more some times than others. The land is pretty flat, except where there are hills, and there are few trees, except where they grow.

Hmmm. If he had said the "Land of Empty Promises", I'd wonder why in the world he wanted to live in DC.

It appears we have a winner...
And maybe a correct answer, too...
I took the photo below about 3 weeks ago while I was there. Most of y'all didn't even notice I was gone, I had Sophie working in the mod shack in my place. Since I heard no complaints, I guess she did all right.

Well, the Salinas Valley is flat as is the central valley, but there are many high mountains in California, including the highest in the Continental US.
