| Where are some unusual places you’ve been? What was the most interesting or surprising thing you learned or discovered about those places?
I'm not sure what is unusual? I married Young, I was 18. Our first home was on a farm in North Dakota. We rented a 2nd floor apartment. The farm had a large windmill that made it energy efficient. All the energy was provided by their own abilities. The woman of the family was very friendly. She took me to town with her once in awhile. It was a lovely house and home.
We used to troll for pike on the Mississippi in a rented boat. That was the most water fun.
When I was in the Panama Canal Zone we went exploring small streams along the canal. Once we saw a water hippo, so we left the area in a hurry. because they are known to capsize small water craft.
Traveling home from Texas to Pennsylvania for a vacation we drove long hours without a stop. Late one very dark night we stopped along a grassy bank and took a couple hours sleep to revive. I don't remember what state we were in or what route we were on. At dawn I woke up and we were parked beside a large sign that said, " Danger, No stopping or parking in this area, state prison." We quickly moved on our way.
I did like driving from place to place in the USA. Because, I saw a lot of the countryside as we past through.
