I did some more of my "take off and explore" this weekend. If you want to try something fun - do this: using the sun as a guide, get in your car and take off in a single direction. Use different roads to adjust accordingly. No maps, just go. You never know where you'll end up, or what you will find! Here are some things I happened upon this weekend:
An interesting dam for a mill, and then - suddenly - a Native American village! You never know when you will happen upon one.
An Indian longhouse. I can totally live in one of these....and I'm absolutely serious
Cool view somewhere in the middle of Connecticut. I also ended up at West Point - here are Napoleon's pistols and sword (the real thing)
General Yamashita's Sword. A WWI tank - or the first "SUV"
Remains of Fort Montgomery - a Revolutionary War Fort taken by the British. We were fighting with the British about something - probably who can hold the remote control.
Sing it with me - "sunnnset on the waaaaateerrr"
That's all, folks. Carry on.
