    Well, there is no place named Titanic. Couldn't be something as silly as Anchorage, Kentucky....?

    Wednesday night stay: How about one side of the ship is the first part of the city name and the last part is some where a ship can not go. It is in TN does that help?

    WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!!!!!!

    Boxcab with 1 1/2 points

    LegomanBill with 2 count em two full points.

    So now to recap We left out Monday morning after checking the radar one more time then we moved every thing from the bike trailer to the car and pulled out heading for Columbus, IN (boxcab)first night. Then it was travel in the sunshine to Frakes KY stop over Tuesday night at Henderson Settlement. Wed morn visit with the family that are now living in the house I helped build in 2009. Then heading to Portland TN (LegomanBill)we stopped to see Church Hill Downs horse race track and seen a couple horses run by during practice. Leaving there we stopped in Bowling Green to see the The Historic Railpark and Train Museum. Last stop was Salem IL (LegomanBill)after riding across the river on a nice ferry (boxcab 1/2). The next stop would be home but not with out driving 3hrs in rain. Maybe we take the Wing on the next trip?!?

    LegomanBill some one will be in touch with your prize. Thanks every one for playing!!:)

    I will be on the road again!
    This time just a short trip to get some schooling for work. Leave out Wed home late on Thursday.
    Place your first guess any time I will give out the first clue Wed night after class. Good luck!

    Don't forget the guessing can start any time. I will need some guessing to give clues.

    Hmmm. I can't think of what to guess. Schooling. Must be lot of places where that could be done, in many directions from your home? Back late on Thursday. So possibly a couple of hundred miles or less from home?

    Well, seeing as you said that you went to a class, I figured, you must have gone to a college possibly, so did you happen to go to Ames, IA, where Iowa State University is?
