I found a card, next up- the elusive stamp, which is probably hanging out with the band-aids and other sundry items I can never find when I need them.

Whenever I travel to that part of the state I think about the history there.

 

Here is a essay about the Centralia Massacre, I am in a rush or I would dig for something better. Worth the read anyway.

Has the phrase "Gang Banging in Mossy Rock" ever crossed your mind?

Re: Travel Log - 2011 - USA

 

A reply to MemphisorDie's letter - thanks!!

 

Also I am going to the post office after this to mail out FIVE letters and packages!! Thanks and please keep in touch. Some of you will be getting some early christmas persnts. And if anyone is still interested, I have this much meat to go through in the next 3 weeks, when I leave here. So... you can let me know by PM or Keepitrail@gmail.com. A relative got me a plane ticket and is flying me to Tennessee for the holidays. Going to leave my car here on the West Coast and then come back and resume the journey early January. I'm so excited to see California.... I am also trying to rig up some way to go to Cuba, if anyone has had experience with that sort of thing.
