Decatur, AL and the 3M Facility.

Much nicer Decatur in Alabama vs our Decatur in Georgia.... by far!

I did some minor research on the 3M facility there after we left. Funny...

So the safety and introduction video I watched, I wish I had recorded it. Funny. In the video it's stated how "3M is known for its environmental friendly-ness"... bla bla bla.

BUT...

If you do a simple Google search for "3M Decatur" the auto fill in the search bar (I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about) you can see where you have an option to add the common search term "al lawsuite". So I was curious. I ran the search "3m Decatur al lawsuit". The results were... ? Not good. It's not funny but I found it funny after I saw the safety and introduction video at the facility and how they claim all that bullspit.

Apparently the lawsuit was over how they had known for some 30+ years they were dumping toxic waste into the Tennessee River and how for another 14 some odd years failed to clean it up or something; resulting in a massive lawsuit.

You can search it out yourself and read the details if you wish.

Here's the article I read about it. I wish i got a recording of the... what I would call a pathetic lie in the safety video about how "environmentally conscious" and how "they're known for it"... quite the opposite. They're known for being extremely environmentally irresponsible if you ask me...

Anyway here's the article I read. From a local news station.

https://whnt.com/2019/04/26/3m-settl...n-lawsuit/amp/

Funny thing is they apparently settled just days before we arrived there.

The day we were there, they had a chemical spill of sorts. Nuts!

Some Honorable Mentions of the Week!

Unlike the last "honorable" mention, Jasper Motors ...

This time I'm being serious. Actual honorable mentions.

#1 Talladega. Nuff said.

#2 Lucas Oil School of Racing. Good school, up there with Skip Barber.

#3/4 "52 BBQ" The best darned BBQ I've had in some time!!! Located off TN State Hwy #52 a few miles south of the Kentucky/Tennessee state line. Darn good! Making me hungry thinking about it. Yum!!!! YUM!!!!!

5/11/19 pics look like the county court house in Celina,TN, Cumberland River, and then the "new" gas station in Moss. Been past those countless times on the way to the in-laws in Fairfield Glade from Indy. Be glad 52 has mostly been upgraded - it would have been miserable in a big rig about 10 years ago, especially east of Celina toward Livingston.

Loving the trip pics!
