During our Western Trek, we picked up
several newspapers which illustrated the
diversity of activities available to those
with the adventuring spirit. For example ...
At the Astrodome in Houston, Texas...
The Second Annual Gumbo Cook Off.
June 24...National Fink Day in Fink, Texas.
Paul Valley, Oklahoma...World Championship
Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest.
Cabrito Cook Off...Includes the cook off,
cow chip throwing , goat pill flipping, and music.
And of course...Hannibal, Missouri...
Tom Sawyer Days...National Fence Painting Contest.
Whoever you are, wherever you are,
we hope you are able to enjoy some
of our more colorful Americana.
