This was the period during prohibition too. And a lot of these people were rum runners, bootleggers. They had smoke screens attached to their cars, and if they were being chased by a cop they would just pull a wire and it would let some kind of a chemical go into the exhaust and just engulf the whole road. It was just like going into a cloud bank. The cop wouldn't know where the heck he was, y'know. That was how they eluded pursuit in the old days. Smoke screens and speed.
Hunting Creek used to be a big creek. They had arks floating on Hunting Creek. People lived in these arks, like people live in trailers. These people didn't pay any taxes, just lived on these arks. Bootlegging and all kinds of illicit stuff going on.
