I got down, way down, in Calipatria. — 6 Comments

  1. I love your worlds biggest, tallest, strangest method of choosing your stops. The quest for the Worlds *** est can lead you to some very interesting people and places. Add Albert, the Worlds Largest Bull in Audobon, IA to your list. Stop in to see Judy at Judy’s Cafe if you ever get up that way.

  2. Have you been back to the Slabs? Where are you in Texas ?? Good grief, I’d bet I was somewhere close to you last week!! If’n I’d known you’s comin’ to Texas, I’d have invited ya here to the piney woods area to see some of the worlds funniest rednecks!!

  3. The claims made by the nice, and generally honest unincarcerated citizens of Calipat (as it is known by true locals) are in fact true, with the following caveats:

    The city is the lowest incorporated city in the western hemisphere. None of the lower (in elevation) habitated locations on the wiki list are true municipalities.

    The flagpole is in fact the tallest free-standing flagpole in the world with the flag flying at sea level.
