Still Headin’ East

Linda & I had a leisurely morning, I arose at 8:30 and put on the coffee. I think the smell of coffee woke my girl around nine. After a breakfast of scrambled egg with chopped sausage on mini bagel and coffee we started to prepare to hit the road. I don’t really know what time we got on the road after dumping the tanks.

We hooked up with US 33 east to I-75 north to Findlay, OH where we would find US 224. We were gonna take US 30 east but there seemed to be too many larger towns & cities so we opted for US 224 which we took west a week ago.

As we’re comin’ up I-75 Linda says is there anything along our route we should see? Yeah, just south of Findlay the state map says there’s a ghost town out in the country. A ghost town? In Ohio? Well maybe it’s an old abandoned town. So we start wonderin’ around lookin’ fer this ghost town, LOST. We got turned around 3 or 4 times, found roads that we wanted to take closed off, so we stopped at a local restaurant and asked. The ghost town? Yeah it’s just down the road. they used to be a sign, it’s still there, no it’s gone. After 4 different opinions we walked out determined to find it. A young lady entering the restaurant said “ Straight down the road, third right turn, there’s Boy Scout Camp sign”.

Well we finally found the ‘Ghost Town”.


Seems like this was just a local attraction but is livin’ up to it’s name.


Nobody’s home


Looks Like even the Sheriff left town.

Guess it was some kind o’ ‘Tourista Trap’ that had seen better days. Leave it to me to trust the state of Ohio when it comes to landmarks & points of interest. Oh well we’re off down the road headin’ east towards Pennsylvania.

Hope to see ya’ down the road as we’re;

Dancin’ on the Wind.
