  5. I stumbled across your website by accident and have spent all of my spare time over the past three days reading your stories of roadside attractions and oddities! I LOVE stuff like this and your vacations are what my dreams are made of. Unfortunately, my family is nearly as willing to travel off the beaten path! I don't know if you often travel to the eastern part of the state, but we have some pretty interesting stuff over this way too! If you're ever in eastern NC you definitely need to check out our little girl buried in a rum keg (Beaufort NC), our Weeping Arch (New Bern, NC), and most importantly out Belhaven Memorial Museum. It's another one of those incredibly interesting place under the guise of a boring and unassuming name. It's also featured on the great website of Roadside America. You can find it here: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2144

  6. I watched your videos regarding Ghost Town and Gold City. I visited Ghost Town many times as a child and went to Gold City a time or two. So tragic it was allowed to simply fall apart. Why was it allowed to fall into disarray? It was busy when I visited all those years ago. Have you ever heard of Echo Valley? It was an "old" western town that operated in the 1960s. Dr. S.M.
