after resuming my crash-stalled transam from last year, found some gems in the first couple of days. spending the night at the fire station. could not have been nicer, and hot water, laundry, etc. also in this town: "the diner" no other name. excellent, cheap food.

Good to learn of you being back at it fastrog.
I am looking forward to following your progress as you post.
'Way to go' on being back on it.
I have found Loretto where you crashed last July.
I am unable to locate Fordstown via either GoogleMaps or Mapquest.
C u at your next post.
- Best wishes on a great transam continuation.

No storms last night?  Lots of thunderstorms and tornadoes on Ohio.

must have been a little tired last night. it is fordsVILLE, and is about one-third inside ACA map 121 westbound. the weather was fine last night but got very black this morning and opened up about the time i had planned to leave. big light show and torrents for several hours finally. rolled on to glenville.

I heard of others having the good fortune of staying in the fire station. My wife and I stayed in the county park last year, a park that we would not recommend to others. Good luck with your travels.

we had tried to make contact with the fire chief, and were waiting for a call. went to look at the county park. kept hearing the theme from "deiverance." and there were piles of brush along the camp area. there is a nasty venemous snake in kentucky called a copperhead. that loves bush piles.
 kind of sealed it for me.
