My Way and No Highway
Cleveland to BG and Back
I have a dream to one day drive from the east coast to the west coast, with basically my camera and maybe a toothbrush. No plans, no reservations, just go and drive and take photos at my own pace. I started small, real small.
I recently drove from Cleveland to Bowling Green, then Toledo to Findlay and then back east to Cleveland. All without the highway. I learned it was fun and I want to do more, but also that it also takes longer than I thought.
I set out with a map on my phone of cool or abandoned places between Toledo and Cleveland. Some of the places were more like scouting trips than actual site visits. I was able to explore a good handful of abandoned places, but also enjoyed the spur of the moment stops as I saw something that caught my attention. I found some amazing buildings and beautiful houses along the way.
And darn it, I am going to have to take another road trip. My cell phone coverage crapped out on me and my map app was not working properly so I missed a lot of places. I guess I will go back out…
Overall the trip was a success and I cannot wait to do it again. Here are some of the random things I saw over a course of two days. [/one_third]
