A Traveler and his Cat exploring America.

A new state for me!  They are all new for Beans

We passed through an Amish area.  Really, your beliefs are unsafe.
Cars, trucks and big rigs were whipping around these buggies at 50 mph.
Also, it was miserably humid and hot and this horse was at a, what do they call it a canter?  
To us humans it would be jogging.  Poor horses, I felt bad for them.

On a related note we passed through a country intersection where a non-injury head on crash occurred.  The local sheriffs were there taking statements waiting for the wrecker to come and disentangle the two cars, one of which was a hearse.  Now you don't see that everyday.
Couldn't see if there was someone in back of the hearse or not.

Amish parking lot at Walmart, Ashland, Ohio.  Seriously, no joke.

This is one of the worst creations of modern times.  These mini TVs at the gas station pumps.  I don't want to be hearing this garbage trying to sell me something I don't want or need.  What is even more annoying?  When you start pumping the fuel the volume increases twice as loud.  There is no escape!

At a rest stop.  A unhappy cat.
Dad, I don't like this place.  Its too loud with cars and trucks.

This historical marker was at the rest stop.  I thought it interesting enough to share with you.

If you're going to be involved in a head-on crash then undoubtedly the best time to have one is on the way to your funeral.

You see some remarkable items on your road tour!

One of the saddest signs you've posted. 21 unclaimed bodies. It hurts to read it.

Wow, John. So glad you posted this plaque. Being a Buckeye, I've been through this town a few times. Never knew this story, though. Next time we go home, I'm going to visit the site. Tis a shame so many folks were "unclaimed". Saddly, its still true that many are forgotten while nearing the end.
