Ready to hit the road?
May 19th... the Scoobies blazed a trail
across North Jersey in search of legendary castles, tombs, churches and paths... and boy,
did we find what we were seeking. It was for sure one of the best Lost trips yet! Special
thanks to our new buddy Ryan,
who we met unexpectedly while exploring the Tomb, and who was cool enough to share his
impressive knowledge of the area's local history about the Tomb, and other weird local
stuff, with us.
We left our apartment early, around 10 am (well, that's early for
the likes of us), and hopped into the Shady Lady. We had to come up with some creative seating arrangements
to fit everyone into the truck-
I surrendered my co-pilot spot, and I ended up alllll the way in the very back,
riding in the cargo area for the entire trip. In all actuality, it really wasn't too bad
back there (besides bringing on flashbacks from the 70's of riding in the back of the
family station wagon during our many Griswold-like family vacations!) I always bring my
laptop, battery charger, power adapter, external disc drives, etc along with me when we go
on a trip (call me Poindexter), and usually all this equipment is stacked
precariously on my lap in the front seat. It's very unwieldy, not to mention the fact that
the bottom of my laptop gets so super-HOT on my lap that it feels like my jeans are gonna
be fused to my legs by the end of the day...lol! So, it was cool to be able to set up a
little "office" back in the cargo area, I could sit comfortably cross-legged
back there, and easily had room to set up all my stuff like a traveling mini-office (note
to self: next time, bring butt-buffering pillow to sit on- it's bumpy back
Our main objective of the day was the find
Kinnelon castle, which we had all heard of, but never been to. We were also planning to
hit up some other spots along the way that I had seen before, but the other
Scoobs hadn't (the Satanic Church & the Dover Mental Cage), as well as to try and find
the mysterious Tomb of 12 Nuns, which we had attempted (and failed) to find once
before. Everyone was ready, and the Shady Lady's tank was full, so we hit the road and
headed North in search of mystery & adventure...
ON TO KINNELON
to purchase one of these, or any of my other photos...?
