Weird U.S.

Caroline and I are currently searching for a place to spend Spring Break and we're feeling the need for an unusual adventure, rather than the ordinary vacation destination.

Our first thought was Roswell, New Mexico to check out the U.F.O.'s. Carter is joining us and he shares our love for history and all things haunted and unique.

While thinking all of this through, I remembered a book given to Blake by Caroline a couple of years ago called Weird U.S. I checked out their website and it is as good as the book. People write in with "weird" stories about travel.

If you're interested, take a look here at just one example of what the site contains. It's a story about a castle under constant construction a couple of hours south of us here in Colorado. The man building it started at age 25 and is now 60. It started as a cottage and he's continued adding on. Quite a peculiar story. Can't wait to visit once we're in that area again!

Thought you all would enjoy checking out oddities in your own state. They're all there. Enjoy!
