But that means you would have to live in Tennessee or visit Tennessee, both horrible options.

Walker: But that means you would have to live in Tennessee or visit Tennessee, both horrible options.


Still better than Alabama.

Also, free beer.

Tennessee has the worst littering I've ever experienced in my life. People just throw bags of garbage out the car window onto the streets. Twice I've been hiking through the mountains here (Cherokee National Forest) and come across actual porcelain toilets people have thrown out. Insane

Say what you will about Tennessee, and lord knows I have and will continue to say plenty, but they've always been on point in their anti litter game.

I was in Yosemite eating at a pikinic bench. A family was at the next bench. When they finished they drove away and left everything from the picnic meal on the tables. I couldn't believe it. There was a trash can not 30ft away. I didn't clean it up. I'm not your mom. The trash can was further than my car so I left. Kidding, my son and I cleaned it all up. All the talk about saving the environment means nothing if we don't start to put it into practice. I didn't even get a free beer.

It's pretty much all over.  What you see from the road still looks beautiful, but just over the first ridge, it begins.

They should have called it, "Pick up litter, get a liter." (I know they don't understand the metric system  but it sort of flows).

I don't know how much money Texas spent on the Don't Mess With TX thing, but it was a miserable failure.

I don't think I have ever seen a place that has more roadside trash than here.

Maybe Louisiana.
