Cemeteries

One of the interesting, common sightings along the road are the local cemeteries in all the small towns.


Not only do the gravestones dating back to the 1700s remind us how long ago people were living and surviving on this same land in Ohio and Indiana, they expose a reality that living in urban cities might not openly confront so easily. Cemeteries are usually more obsolete, in less populated areas of the city. These cemeteries are on the main road (normally named Main Street) across the street from the one room school house.

In addition to great photos, we also needed soft patches of grass to stretch on and nearby
cemeteries, we normally found open grass. JP was using a stump as a stretching post and inside, he found a small bottle with a piece of paper folded away. We decided that whatever was written on the paper would be our fortune for the rest of the day. As we slowly unfolded the paper, we saw it was entirely blank.
We wrote our own message before we took off for another 40 miles: ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
