What are the Odds of THIS?

Post by Big Daddy O'Reilly » Mon Sep 17, 2012 2:59 pm

Every now and then, I'll play around with Google Maps, trying to pin-point the spot in Malibu Creek State Park where the show used to be filmed, but I never seem to be able to find it. So today, I started goofing off even more, and just randomly started typing "MASH 4077" in the search box, and guess what I happened to find? Right here, in my own hometown, here in K-town Tenny, there is an actual address in this town that is "4077 Mash Lane".

No fooling, look it up yourself on Google Maps if you don't believe me.

What are the odds of something like this? And in my own hometown!

That must be one long lane to have a house number so high.

Try this link...I used this to help find the exact spot for the site when my family and I went to Malibu Creek State Park last year. It's good because it shows the position of some of the buildings.

Nice map, Chuck. Did you take any pictures you could post on here for us? Last time I was there, M*A*S*H wasn't even on the air. Yeah, I'm old.

I tried to upload the pictures I have, but they wouldn't upload or don't show up for some reason or another. Although it was a hike to get there, the MASH set at Malibu Creek is one of my most favorite visited places.

Dang! If you're talking about the MASH lane in Knoxville, TN, I'm only 30 minutes from there. I may have to drive over and see it.

Yes, looking at the map, the actual address of 4077 Mash Lane is right where it meets Cunningham Road.

Maybe he'll make like a refuge camp for posters running away from the other board. However, I insist on having my own tent and Jeeter can do the cooking. Of course, Big Daddy must be the company clerk and protect us from all evil communications.

By the way, what is on 4077 Mash Lane? Is it housing or commercial? Show us a picture.

Either that, or I'll open up a mall. That sells nothing but M*A*S*H memorabilia. Yeah.
