The Boys in the Woods (aka BITW) took a little overnight pilgrimage back to our old camp grounds deep in the hills of Talladega, Alabama to unplug and unwind. Up here, there's no cell phone reception, no electricity, no running water, no streets, and no stress for miles. We shoot guns, we eat meat, and tell a lot of funny stories. It's good times.
RC Cola was first developed in Columbus, GA (my hometown) back in 1905 and is known as the cola of choice for real Southern folks (not rednecks - I think they drink Mountain Dew).
