    I've driven loads of ice cream from Tennessee to Henderson a few times.

    Yeah, quit trying to grow lawns in the desert would be a good start.

    Where did you load the ice cream; which town?

    I can't recall the town, but I can tell you it was a Unilever plant and it was far from the interstate. Both times I started empty from Olive Branch, MS for the pick up. They didn't have an on site scale either, but they did have free ice cream for the drivers in the shipping dept.

    I eat a lot of ice cream in China; it's delicious and not as much sugar as stateside ice cream.

    With this covid situation and travel being a major PITA, do you ever see yourself there again?

    My in-laws live in Henderson, going on 60 years now. They use to be out in the sticks and nothing around for miles.
    Now it’s urban sprawl and swallowed up.

    They also have to shut it down during high peak electrical use. Seems the ######### in CA. Solar panels can’t keep up even asking residents to curtail charging the over grown golf carts.
