The highest point in these areas must be 8 - 10 feet above sea level.

That's like Texas calling their hills "mountains". Guess they haven't seem Alaska. Heck, Alaska doesn't bother naming a mountain unless it's over 10,000 feet in the air.
Maybe its because they believe in the power of positive thinking? Someday, a hill may appear.

^^^ Steve - is it possible the Hill family investment trust is behind this. No actual "hills" involved. Just a very big family with lots of money?

Texas has the "Hill Country" and some that I have seen are 6 and 7% grade but not really mountains!

That's a good one, Steve. I suspect that there may be a barely perceptable bump at those points. Perhaps the local constabulary was trying to lure businesses to a high point with possibility of a public overlook?
In MN in my teens, we went to ski and eye the chicks at a place called Buck Hill. We called it Buck Bump. Folks from MN that went out West to REAL ski places were easily picked out on the slopes, as they had a habit of "shushing" side-to-side very rapidly. In MN at Buck Bump, you got in as many "shushes" as possible!
True story!

Actually, the "dry heat" works so well here in AZ that they dry wrinke-free while moving from the washer to the hangers.
YMMV 😂

Oh my! I hope that wasn't in an RV!

When we had breakfast we met a couple travelling north who said they had been held up in the mountains by an accident. A DP went off the road and rolled, killing 2 occupants, so they said. Be safe, fellow mutants!

"CARYVILLE (WATE) - Two people from Indiana were killed in a crash Monday morning that resulted in the closure of Interstate 75 northbound in Campbell County.

Tennesee Highway Patrol troopers say a large motor home was going northbound around 7:40 a.m. near mile marker 147 when it ran off the roadway and hit a guard rail. The vehicle then went down an embankment striking a tree before coming to a final rest.

Jacqueline and Larry Sparks, of Pittsboro, Indiana, were both killed. Debra Dorrell, also of Pittsboro, Indiana was injured. Crews worked for hours to free her from the vehicle.

No one in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt. Officials say that may have made a difference.

The northbound lanes reopened just before 5 p.m. Southbound traffic was not affected."

Papa Steve.... When my boys were growing up, we lived in SE Arkansas, which is flatter than flat... My youngest one called the river levee the mountain.... It's all relative...... Btw, he now lives in north central Arkansas in the almost mountains...

Night...

Hey... Duet... hows that for a name for your MOHO Mel?
We're open to nominations, but I think we're close. We're gonna do one more weekend in the coach and then settle on a name ... which will make Dilly Down very happy.

Vanilla is #1 with me too... sometimes celebration is in order. I even like vanilla air freshener - incense - waffle mix.. you name it, if it's vanilla count me in.
