I love ALL state parks. But not as much as character cut outs!
Maybe it was instilled in my head as a child. Some of my earliest memories involve riding around in the back of my dad's pick-up truck (hey, it was the early 80's) with my two older sisters, scouring the back roads ofToad road. I didn't know the stories and the legend about the place, but it was always creepy and certainly strange.
By my teenage years when I was able to hit the open road on my own I would always find myself drawn to the weird and odd places. The more sinister the better. My friends and I would search the rural back roads looking for anything out of the ordinary.
By my 20's I was raising a family and didn't have much time to search the underbellies of society. But as my daughter got older and the bills got higher I found myself drawn back into this odd fascination. Only this time there was no holding back. Seems as my fascination grew so did a lot of other folks. By my late 20's and early 30's I had discovered quite a bit of information on haunted, historical, abandoned, and odd spots allover. So my wife, my daughter, and myself went out in search. We discovered how much fun as a family we could have without spending much money, if any. Plus my daughter was learning about history (just don't tell her that) even if some was a little odd or macabre.
Warming up for Denny's Beer Barrel Pub Challenge.
Out running T-Rex at Knoebel's. Good thing I had on my Batman shirt.
