You guys are sure sparking some memories in me. I grew up in the south, in Texas to be exact. One of my most vivid memories is the smell of burning refuse from the cotton gins in the area. There is nothing that smells quite the same that I have ever found. I still find it rather a pleasant smell.


I also find the smell of rain on a long parched desert with sage brush very very pleasant. It can be rather strong a times though.

Yes, thanks for the memories.

Ah, Jackie--I'm with you. I remember the lovely smell of burning leaves in the autumn, and the fun as a child of running and jumping into the pile of raked leaves. And there is a another, indefinable smell of autumn in New England--a sort of crispness--something in the air other than burning leaves. Every once in a while here in California in the morning I get a whiff that reminds me.

Enjoy your stay, Chris and Susan, and your trip along the way.

Have fun & be safe, Chris & Susan. The northeast is
so beautiful in
the fall, w/all the autumn colors. I don't know how
late into October
you'll be staying but hopefully long enough for Susan
to see those. As
for u, fall has many scents & feels which u can enjoy,
too, though I
don't believe my favorite, e.g., the smell of burning
leaves, is
permitted anymore.
