I remember we hurried thru House on the Rock in Wisconsin once, and would like to take Suzn and spend a day there - it's a fantasy thing where musical instruments play themselves, whole thing is set up so objects get bigger as you progress thru the rooms - sorta shrinks you into a kid again.
So let's try something: If you had a month to wander around the country before diving into field work, what have you wondered about & would you like to see?

When I was younger I used to spend the winters going across country on a motorcycle. I guess if I had the time in the summer would like to go across the northern part, from here in CT to Washington. I'm sure there's a lot of good country and good people to meet out that way. And I'd do it in a car or truck now!

Probably head out to Alaska to hunt and fish in the BIG woods.

Like to know how it feels to NOT neccesarily be the dominant predator on the mountain.

Well, a bit outside the country but I'd like to take the ride up to Valcort, Qubec and see the J.A. Bombardier museum...

I just recently found out about a muesem called the martyrs muesem in Tulsa, OK It's supposed to be an entire muesem dedicated to the history and historical evidence of thousands of men and women that have given their lives trying to share the love of Christ. There is supposed to be a wall at the end of the building that has little wooden crosses representing people who have been killed for the cause of Christ around the world during the previous month, the number of crosses is usualy about twenty thousand. I think my family and I will go see this sometime this month.

Yes there is a museum like that in Tulsa. I have seen it on the T.V., but have not been there in person. If you want I can look in the Tulsa phone book and try to find the address.

DeadCarp - caverns?    Posted 03-08-2003 at 13:40:41       [Reply]  [No Email]
Is Oklahoma where they have those big underground caverns where they keep stamp collections and stuff? Or is that in Kansas? I think they harvested salt or something to make them and guess they're big enough to drive semis around in --- 8 football fields-worth or something.

DC, I used to load out of the "CAVES" in Kansas, not only can you turn a rig around in there, they have warehouses in there. Ya can go in, turn around and back in, roads going everywhere. Loading docks are carved out of rock. Winter or summer, no difference. However the temp. and humidity are ideal for storing food. I always loaded Kellogs out of there.
Well worth the trip to see it.
