Our neighbor's son is in high school and has decided he wants to drive this old hearse for his car. He had it out today for a spin (literally) in 18" of snow. The things gives me the creeps and reminds me of some cross between a slasher movie and Christine (I know wrong car).

During our visit to New England, we stopped for a stay at the Publick House in Strurbridge, Massachusetts. Adjacent to the Publick House is a large cemetery with many of our country's earliest heroes from the Revolutionary War buried here. It is also the final resting place of Mrs. Experience and Mrs. Desire. ;-)

This is the second of these we have found in the woods. Both had caches. Is this something you can buy on E-Bay? I can read it now... "Ever wanted to place a nice cache in the woods, but couldn't find a guardrail to hold your hide? Well, here's just what you need...."
This was a stage of a really well done multi, but the guardrail is pretty funny. There was no evidence of any road ever having been there.

We were at the Wild Wind Folk Art Festival in Pittsfield and saw this wagon full of youngsters enjoying the day with dad. I thought the linking wagons were great. The kids looked really happy. I couldn't tell if it was the cool ride they had or the great ice cream they were enjoying. I'll bet mom and dad were happy the wagons are easy to clean :-).

Ali was getting her new glasses today and stopped by at lunch. There was a new cache in a park near the office so we had a pleasant lunch-time hunt. I thought Battshack was a great idea (why don't I ever think of these?). Unfortunately, I'm Alright has been hanging out in my head as an earworm since I saw the battyshack. I also keep hearing Bill Murray say "Freeze gopher." I was surprised to see that this guy has a whole site devoted to Caddyshack. It seems like that movie was a lifetime ago.

This water tank is sure to brighten one's day. The tank fits the town's residents. They seemed quite friendly during our short visit. I wonder though if the smile doesn't come from the water tank's knowledge of the two big guns at the base that are protecting it from invasion by wandering Michigan residents. ;-)

It seems like every town has these now. When thousands come each year to hear the resident groundhog predict the weather, you can be certain that the town will be decorated with dressed up groundhogs. This is but a small sample of the Phils in Punxsutanwey. Hmmm... maybe the NEOGEO cachers could have decorated Illini Phil's all over the Summit County area? ;-)

We saw these on the porches of the cabins at Denton Hill State Park. They are great looking cabins and one of the main attractions of the park is a skiing area. The chairs were a perfect fit for the park, and the look really great.

As we approached this, Ali said it looked like a marshmallow tree. We were glad the locals thought enough of this crater to create the marshmallow tree to warn drivers. The hole would swallow our little ute. We had no idea how the locals with big trucks got around this monster.

Bits and Pieces Lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really haven't meant to ignore this section for so long, but there hasn't been much to see that's worthy of this page. This evening after I left the office I was out for a little caching and waymarking. Since it was so cold, I decided to make this my last stop. There is a cache behind the parking area and hot chocolate inside. I decided to ignore the cache with the police car in the parking lot and a highway patrol car in the drive through, but it was worth it for this picture. When I lived locally, I used to stop at a nearby donut shop called Jolly Roger. That place was a satellite station for the local police. Maybe this location has taken its place. :-)
