You know you are close to home when you pull into a gas station and you see all of the “Crackers” with their toys on a Saturday afternoon. In this picture you can see an airboat, a 4×4 that is ready to try to keep up with the Swamp Buggy’s, and there were others out of frame with ATV’s ready to roll around in the muddy back country of the swamps.airboat.jpg

PS while the name “Cracker” has some negative associations further north in Georgia where the cotton plantations used slaves. In Florida the term “Cracker” was a proud title like Cowboy. In fact the cowboys many Cuban used their whips to make a cracking sound that would drive the cattle. In Georgia they weren’t using their whips on cattle, see what I mean.
