Another southern Indiana road trip, and a meetup reminder

In two weeks, I’ll be hosting my inaugural “I’m going wandering and you’re welcome to join me” event.

Yesterday would have been a good day, actually, but then I wouldn’t have felt free to stop and check out a Cherokee XJ that might just make the cut.

Based on roads I drove yesterday, and more that I glimpsed, I’ve changed my plans for this month’s drive; instead of Cataract Falls area, I’m going to explore south of Paoli. Let me know at oppo@epep.us if you’re seriously considering coming along.

I’ll start with the vehicles. There was a car show underway that I skipped, sadly, and the few cars I caught roaming as it was breaking up I also missed taking photos of. But, still, there was plenty to see.

This party was continuing on a boat somewhere on Lake Monroe. Sad I wasn’t out there with them.

It’s an auto, but the price is right and there’s an off-road shop down the road from it that could turn it into the vehicle I want (probably minus a transmission conversion, but you never know...)

This wasn’t southern Indiana, but it was brown and boxy so forgive me. Also sounded terribly obnoxious.

Paoli is a very photogenic town. A few years ago it lost its historic bridge to someone who couldn’t read and clearly shouldn’t have been driving a semi.

Fortunately they’ve rebuilt and reopened.

I’m not sure how many markers celebrate both George Washington and Tecumseh. I need to spend some more time digging into this one.

Paoli’s town square still feels very much like old-time Indiana

I stopped at a farmhouse to buy some sweet corn. Turned out to be an Amish family.

It’s a shame that “motorcycle church” wasn’t on the Oppo scavenger hunt.

I couldn’t pass near a town named “Doolittle Mills” without visiting, could I? Oil Township has a population of 2500.

Trying to capture sunset here cost me a chance to capture it over Patoka Lake, but I’ll get it eventually.
