The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (commonly known as Rhode Island) is geographically the smallest state in the United States, and the state with the longest official name. Rhode (pronounced "Road") Island is part of the New England region, and was one of the thirteen original American colonies that declared independence against British rule to begin the American Revolution.
Back in the 70's, I used to skydive on weekends at a field in Lugoff; I think we called it the Lugoff Sport Parachute club. The plane, a Cessna 206, used to take-off and land on the farmer's field and there was a pea stone pit we landed in. Does that field still exist? Where is it located? I seem to remember being right off a two-lane undivided highway.--Submitted by Daniel St. James
