Another form of transportation we are well aware of in East Texass is the log trucks, which go by our place day and night en route to the paper mill at Evadale. The loaded log trucks come from the west on Hwy 327 and stop at the traffic light at 327 and 96. They do make a racket as they take off on their way to hwy. 96 and east to Evadale aka Stinkydale or Evil Smells. Again, people who work "at the mill" and their families say "that's the smell of money". The paper mill is owned by Meadwestvaco. and I just researched a bit and found that Meadwestvaco is much more than just a paper mill. I also found this site with skadoodles of log truck pictures.
This all being said about, I turned my thoughts to travel and searched ESN photos for places one might go. Preferably quiet, serene places, like Hawaii.
