The Road To Chandlersville

Road To Chandlersville

Ohio State Route 146 out of Zanesville led me to this abandoned home. The rot was beginning and nature was staking it’s claim on this property.

I’m sure it’s just coincidence, but this is the last photo posted before a series of technological and social breakdowns of people and equipment. As I sit looking back at what’s occurred since I posted this photo, I have to wonder how things work though. Are there curses?

If there are curses, they don’t last. You work around them. If a drug-addled madman effects lives and livelihoods, you work around that. If your camera or computer breaks, you work around that until a solution happens. Resorting to other resources that are unfamiliar can be educational and exhilarating.

Still, like looking at this home, when you look at the events, wondering what the hell happened is understandable. This was a home that was ones somebody’s place of refuge. What happened?

I’ve got a block of material on hard drives that is just going to sit there for a while. I’m not sure I want to get back into them just yet.

Hancock County, Ohio Trip This Weekend

Hancock County, Ohio Visit

I made a visit to Hancock County, Ohio this weekend. I’ll have more photos ready to add to my Ohio County Photo Project soon.

About This Yellow Honda Goldwing

We stopped at a light and I mentioned that I wanted a hitch on my Goldwing if for no other reason than it’s a great way to carry a cooler. The rider heard us and told me that he made his own rack for his cooler.

As we rode I noticed that he had a car tire on the rear, highway pegs, and an aftermarket exhaust. I bet there are quite a few modifications that I didn’t see. ¬†What a cool Goldwing.

Route 23 Hate

I hate Ohio State Route 23. It’s flat and boring. What’s worse, it’s lined with Ohio State Highway Patrol, so any attempts at speeding through your travels on it can get expensive.

Today though, I just let those low-lying clouds in the photo roll over and enjoyed the pleasant weather with the cruise control on.

About Hancock County

Findlay turned out to be the focus once we started looking around. Hancock County is flat farm country. In these types of Ohio counties, I head to the cities to find points of interest to photograph.

This painting was one of the more interesting sights I found in Findlay. I’ll be working on the project photos this week.

The ride home was beautiful as the weather was nice and the sun was setting just as we arrived back to Licking County. I watched the farms roll by one after the other.
