Reminds me of that beginning part of that great old classic "Them (the giant radio active ants)"-ya know where they come upon that wrecked trailer out in the desert and the bent 30-30 rifle with all those tumble weeds blowing around and that weird music.  Hey RONR-better not go to Mexico by way of Death Valley and the California Desert-never know, maybe they didn't kill  all those ants and some are just waiting for someone to park their camper next to one of their giant ant hills :ph34r:!




Talk about a good classic, that movie gave me nightmares as a kid. And it is really PG compared to the stuff today.

Sure was! I still remember that scene where they are looking for their sheriff friend and come across that first  giant ant hill and see this soldier ant come out with  their friends gun belt in its mandibles and drops it on a pile of bones! Black and white-don't make 'em like that anymore!

I would run over tumbleweeds left and right when I was commuting along HWY 97 between Ellensburg and Yakima. I wouldn't try that with a wall of tumbleweeds.

We saw a minor car fire in Pahrump, when a tumbleweed lodge near hot exhaust.
