This is a photo of the very large sign "advertising" him. As far as we could tell and from what I read about him later, he really does live in this cabin and makes walking sticks to sell and charges money to people who want to take his picture (I have to admit, I toyed with the idea of having my photo taken with him, but the place smelled and I wasn't sure what might be living in that beard--so I just settled for a wave as we drove by.
I decided it would be fun to make everyone their very own Hillbilly Earl (the better looking brother of Hillbilly Sam). This is the open page--when the door is shut, Hillbilly Earl is safely enclosed in his very own outhouse). You can move his arms and legs and if you gently pull his beard you can see his partly tootlhless grin...wouldn't you pay 10 cents for a kiss????
