That B-25 pic is cool. When I was growing up in Macon in the 50s-60s and fireants were becoming a serious problem across GA, USDA, or GADNR, or whomever obtained a small fleet of them surplus. Fitted with pesticide spreading equipment they were given regular and good workouts. Imagine the equivalent of a crop duster but with bomber payload capacity.

Was used for target practice

Thinking it would stop 50 cal bullets fired into it

Of course there was nothing but woods behind it back then too

The structure at Z-Hills (looked exactly the same) was used to sight the machine guns on aircraft. There were very large "U" bolts that held the front landing gear in place and a small platform elevated the tail (most WWII planes were tail-draggers) on the apron at different locations in front of the structure. After the war the local police sometimes used the location as a shooting range. As kids we would dig up the spent lead, melt it down and sell it as scrap. I only wish I had saved a few of the .50 cal bullets I dug up.

Replacement for WW II

There hasn't been a tag over here in a while. The clue is this bridge leads to a very popular west coast beach.

..... and what West Coast Beach would that be, since there are a lot of them... and we usually don't look at them from the bottom.... and what is a Clemontvillian doing in Pinellas this often?


I asked the Google for Krazy 8's..... talk about "you wanna have to go there to know how to get there".... boonies!

Without giving it away, if you ride over the bridge you'll come to a very popular Pier 60.

As for Pinellas, I used to live in Palm Harbor a long time ago and still have family there. I went to look at a car for my nephew yesterday.


Yes Krazy 8's is out in the bush!
