So, have you ever heard of Bugtussle? I did, I remember the episodes from the Beverly Hillbillies where the “Mayor of Bugtussle” paid a visit to its richest former citizen Jed Clampett. This fictitious Bugtussle was in Tennessee. Well, on a trip in February 2010 I became possibly the only person to ever drive from one Bugtussle to another one, all in one day (see entire trip journal).
In my research on the Bugtussles of America, I found three actual places called Bugtussle…one in Kentucky, on in Alabama and on in Texas. So, I chose the two between Lexington, KY and Keller, TX.
I left very early in the morning and got to Bugtussle, KY about 7:30 AM. There is an old Bugtussle Store there….step out the back door and you are in Tennessee. I drove almost 18 hours and got to the location of Bugtussle, TX, but couldn’t find it until I found the sign above. That is the only evidence…but I made it and got to two of them!!
