Whiskey Six #2
The “whiskey sixes” would run to Canada and back in the late spring through the fall, until the snow came. They did not run in the winter due to the danger of getting stuck in snow or mud, also the cars would be easier to follow. The price paid to the runners for running from their start to Canada and back varied. The amount ranged from $100.00 to $500.00 per trip. A lot of money was made in a very short time if you wanted to take the risk.
