->> I have no idea where the pictures are, but after a night of shooting I pulled into the plaza of one of the local thrift stores and a Chinese restaurant. Both had blown letters on their neon signs, leading to "Goodwill Ions" and "Chin Buffet". Now that I think of it, maybe it wasn't all that funny...oh well.

->> Best one I don't have a picture of...was traveling through Minnesota following a friend's directions for the 'direct route' to get to Iowa City...was winter and the road turned from poor pavement to frozen dirt for miles and miles.

Was just about to turn around when a flashing sign read: "You're not lost, you're in Iowa".

(Maybe you had to be there...road construction didn't finish before winter, so it really was a highway at one point...)
