You might think, "No big deal". Right? But it was.... We drove from Troy to Ortonville to Fenton to Milford to Ferndale. It took us 10 hours and 147 miles to grab 9 WITW caches... plus a few extra!

|What do you do on YOUR dates?|
|Very well-tended spot|
|What an epitaph! That's it?|
|Ok, the 3 year old came out in me. What's funnier?|
"Cockawasaw" or Dibbleville?
I couldn't find anything, really, online about either.
|Continental Army - Revolutionary War|
If you make it to Fenton (or Imlay City or Davisburg or Clio or Bay City), definitely stop at Lucky's Steakhouse! The meal was FABULOUS! TaGeez had the chicken & shrimp pasta while I enjoyed the grilled pork chops. AMAZING!
We decided since we were so close to stop at the Tyrone Memorial Gardens. I told you all about the history of this gem during our February 2013 visit. We were geeked to see it not covered in ice but surrounded by lush greenery. We were excited to see the stones without having to chip away at the snow and ice. We were excited until we saw that the bridge is missing (winter fatality?) and the stones buried in a see of tall grass. Hopefully it will be repaired on our next journey out there.

This was the last solve and the last find in the Where in the World? series. We had a great time, but those last few caches were a little more challenging with the uber tall grass and skeeters the size of crows. TaGeez laughs - he says my "speed of find" is directly related to the "plethora of skeeters" - there's something in that.
