where i lived in this state


where i lived, originally uploaded by skippy haha.


this map kicks so much ass. i didn't realize where all these places were until i saw them lined up with elevation relief. i can't help getting lost in it, looking at all the town names thinking "who were they?" (who named the town, who settled the town, who's living there now? what are they doing?)

Wouldn't it be great to do a Charles Kuralt and visit, stay, and study all these places? Dig into why they are there. Each with it's own different, fascinating story. What a way to go.

BH, i think that could be extremely interesting. everybody's got a story. why don't you & henry get a winnebago & go for it?

Every little hamlet has a gathering place, maybe just someone's home where they love to talk about their history. How do they know it? Because it's still proudly passed on by family and friends, not by the internet. Part of the fun would be figuring out how to get past their shields so they would "want" to tell all to a stranger. I'd like that challenge.

with henry by your side & mom behind the wheel of the winnebago i think its a nobrainer. people would spill their guts.
