Jun 4, 2017 - Logan OH

We hit the road Wednesday fairly early so that we could get set up at the Tall Timbers KOA near Dayton in order to spend a couple hours at the National Museum of the USAF http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/. We had been there in 2011 and had not gotten to see everything, so that was today’s quest. I thought that today’s most interesting plane, to you out there in journal-land, would probably be the Air Force One that transported President Kennedy’s body back to Washington after he was assassinated in Dallas in 1963 and it was where the famous...

Aug 28, 2015 - Ohio Tidbits "Old Man's Cave" Hocking Hills State Forest, Logan Ohio

I have not been to Old Man’s Cave in over 20 years. The last time was when we took Holly, our only Granddaughter, there for a picnic. She was about 10 years old and really enjoyed her first visit to this park. I can still remember the picnic tables and area adjacent to the Old Man’s Cave entrance where we had our picnic. That has all changed. Those tables are now gone, and the area is part of a very big two level outside parking area. The park area is a safe one, but rest assure there are State employees patrolling the area, just in case...

Jun 1, 2015 - Ohio Tidbits. Lake Logan Survivor of a Ancient Sea

I started fishing in Lake Logan over 40 years ago, and even though I never got any lunkers in these waters, it remains to me, as one of my favorite lakes. Since my very first fishing boat, I have had the name Lunker Hunter on the side of it. Of all the lakes and rivers I have fished, this is the only lake I have not gotten my hole in one. When a fisherman does not catch the big fish he or she always comes up with the story, I didn’t come for the fish, I came for the relaxation and piece of mine. Well, just so you know, I always missed...

May 25, 2015 - Ohio Tidbits. Pencil Sharpener Museum, Logan Ohio

I had just left Lake Logan, and stopped at the Welcome Center at 664 and Route 33. I wanted to get some additional maps on scenic stops in the Hocking Hills. As I walked toward the entrance of the center, I came across a very small building approximately 12X20 that had a sign that simply said Paul A Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum. I was surprised to see that anyone would have a collection of over 3400 pencil sharpeners. The door was open, and as I walked in, I did expect a pencil sharpener or two. What I found was so many varieties of...

May 24, 2015 - Ohio Tidbits The Rugged and Famous Cantwell Cliffs in the Hocking Hills

I have lived in this area of Ohio for most of my life and have never been to the Cantwell Cliffs, which is located in the Hocking Hills. I am doing a trip journal series on Ohio and the small places that most travelers just might miss. As a word of caution, if you are above the age of 90, you might want to talk to your family doctor before you take this stroll. Also if you are about 80, better talk to your companion, just so they will know where you are. Well, the first thing I noticed when I arrived, I was the only one on the trail, and...

Aug 16, 2007 - 4 days and Counting

It's just after 4 o'clock in the afternoon on Thursday. We are in Logan, visiting Mike and Vickie (Chelsea's parents) for a little extra family time. Chelsea is upstairs napping and I am furiously clicking away at the keyboard. We leave sometime tomorrow afternoon for the 6 hour drive west to Chicago where we will spend a nice weekend with my mom's brother and his wife before getting on a plane just after noon on Monday. It's then 13.5 hours until we touch land again at Narita Airport in Tokyo. We will be there for only 3.5 hours before...
