    Me, my brother, and my friend found 2 tumbleweeds, at 6 feet each. (one was 5 feet actually). We named them Brownie and Carl. They were good friends. Then my mom made us put them back on the gravel covered road by my house. I put them where we originally found them, in a gigantic ditch (couple hundred feet wide/length.

    I'm sure your 'friend' appreciates you helping it to spread seed all the way to your house.

    Maybe next year you will have a whole crop of 'friends'!

    actually there's this hill behind my house with live tumbleweed plants on it but its the small species. The large one (the 6 foot ones) are pretty far away.

    Wow! That sounds cool. Probably because I've never seen a tumbleweed.
