Do you ever just sit back and think about what life would have been like 300-400+ years ago. It would be about 1716 or 1616. There's a reason I'm asking you this, don't worry.
There's a tree just outside of Charleston South Carolina, that is about that age. It's been there for a really long time and it's massive. We drove down a slightly bumpy, unpaved road and stood in awe of this huge tree.
If you were alive 400 years ago, what do you think you would be doing? Do you think you'd like it? I don't really know if I would, everything now has made life so much easier.
