I decided to create this page to let everyone know what I'm doing. Any plans for adventures, and general updates about this site or new pages can be found below:

This is the last update to the site via this webpage. From now on, all future updates will be detailed via the Site Blog. Feel free to check there for any future updates.

This is a HUGE update (if you have not seen). I got my own domain name and started moving everything over. Please excuse the mess, and any broken links you come across. This is a big learning curve and I'm working to make everything better than it was originally. Please be patient and feel free to contact me if you see any broken links or any comments you may have.

On 9/9/2006,myself, Beth, and two other members of Grave Addiction took a trip out to Egypt Valley. We hit the Murder Site, Salem Cemetery, Circle Cemetary, the area where the bridge is out on Salem Ridge Road, the town of Egypt, Ohio, Hendrysburg Cemetery, Union Township Cemetery, and Pioneer Cemetery.

The past few weeks have been insane. I hit 7 different cemeteries in a week's time. Three of these cemetaries where in Michigan, two in the Columbus area, and two in Morristown, Ohio. Not to mention, I'm planning another visit to Egypt Valley to search for the town of Egypt, Ohio. This will be a joint mission with Beth from Grave Addiction and several others from her site. Needless to say, I am very excited

This was more of an update on the back end. I fixed some spelling errors, cleaned up some broken links, and modified the contact me link from a horrific mailto tag to a nifty PHP form. I've started to dabble in PHP, and a friend of mine (who is a PHP devoloper) said I need to find projects to learn PHP faster. This was one of those projects.

I've been slightly busy over the past few weeks. Afew weeks back I was back home and went into Egypt Valley. I had forgotten my camera, so this was going to be a scouting mission. I visited the murder site, and as I was driving away towards Salem Cemetary, I realized I had my cell phone. I didn't feel like going back to take pictures so I'll have to get then next time. I did get some pictures of The Old Egypt Cemetary (Circle Cemetary) and I ventured to find the other "End of 40". This would be the western terminus. And speaking of US-40 in Belmont County, I finally made up a page for my Route 40 project. So far it highlights both terminuses of 40.

If that wasn't good enough, (what do you people want from me), I also started on Columbus attractions. First off is the faux Columbus Subway entrance. I also updated the maps page.

I'm still working on the blog idea, but I've decided to start a maps section. With the advent of Google Earth, locations can be saved, and shared more easily. Not to mention I discovered the nifty churches & cemetaries feature. Both the Salem Cemetary & the Old Egypt Cemetary (Circle Cemetary) are listed.

The next thing I'm going to try to work on is a blog on this site. I've looked into several, but being as I don't have root access or command line access on this domain. I've found nothing that suits my needs. I'm also considering just registering a domain of my own that should give me the ability to create a blog for this hobby.

Yeah...Yeah...Yeah... I know it's been close to a year and a half. I finally got around to doing some work to the site. First off I updated some info on here and added an ad thing to each page. No worries, it's at the bottom to be as easy to ignore as possible; while still hopefully generating some extra cash for me.

I reorganized the pages on the site and started adding content from my recent visit to Belmont County. The basics of these updates are addition of pictures to the Egypt Vallery Page, more pictures to "The End of 40" page, and some addational information about the St. Clairsville page. It was during this trip that I came up with the idea of "The Route 40 Project".
