Hello from Birmingham, Alabama

Welcome. I've been in Alabama just once. Drove through in 1969... the proverbial hippy... long hair, the blonde, the painted up VW bus (peace symbol, rainbows, etc.)... taking the summer off to 'look for America.' We had no trouble but when we would stop for gas or food, the looks we got from some of the 'good old boys' was kind of scary. We didn't stop until we got to New Orleans.
