It's not the age of the vehicle, it's the mileage.

I just missed it, but I think Fred was there.
Fred is pretty incredible in my book. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

I thought we all could use a little lesson in geologic time. It might help us feel a little younger, and if not about us at least about our wives. "Gee Honey, you're a lot younger than that glacier. Now why are you getting all frigid on me now".

The Mississippi Valley suffered a similar fate. The last continental glacier pushed up a huge moraine in front of it as it crept south, which acted as a dam when the glacier started to recede, holding back a large quantity of water that eventually breached the dam and caused a huge flood. That is why the south banks of the Missouri and Ohio Rivers border hills, and the north banks of the same rivers border flatlands, at least as far up river as the first fall lines.

Since modern man had only a verbal tradition at end of last ice age is is understandable that some 6,000 plus flood stories abound around the planet as memories of massive releases of formerly ice-bound water get passed down from generation to generation. Scholars may argue if our biblical flood story was inspired by breach of Bosphorus linking Mediterranean with Black Sea but countless other myths exist in cultures isolated from Mediterranean influences. All I know is that in north america there is widespread evidence of massive floods, sometimes we humorously exploit them like this sign in Idaho where stream rounded basalt boulders abound. th-31.jpeg

I love Idaho, just like teasing you guys from the Gem State. And Athol really is a much nicer little town than you'd think from the name. :p
