Things I never posted last year of my three-month cross-country rubbertramp trip with Alyssa, November 16th:
Room 8 was a stray cat who waltzed into a classroom at Elysian Heights Elementary back in 1952. He instantly became a fixture of the school, living there during the class season and disappearing during summer vacation. When a new school year would begin, he’d be back there on the first day. He was named after his favorite classroom.
In time, he became famous, and news cameras would be there waiting for his arrival at the start of each school year. The school would receive a hundred letters a day addressed to him and his fame lead to being profiled in numerous national magazines, a documentary, and a children’s book.
In his older years, he got hurt in a cat fight and was taken in by a nearby family. He still visited the school, but was returned across the street to his second forever home by the janitor every day until he died at the age of 21 in the comfort of an animal hospital. His long obituary ran in papers ranging from local all the way to the east coast and he was buried at a local pet cemetery with a grave stone funded by money raised by the students.
Today, his memory surrounds the school, and his paw prints are even imprinted in one of the many inscribed sidewalk panels around it, which include stories and drawings by past classrooms of their memories of him. A beautiful mural can also be seen behind the gate.
More proof that non-human animals make this world a more magical place.

We of course had to stop by the Elliot Smith “Figure 8” wall. I wasn’t sure when the last coat of paint was added to maintain it, but the colors were a little muted. There were only a few tags on it remembering in his memory, though. A Filipino bar opened up on one half of it, so this side is all that remains of the full mural.

...This is Larry. He is a radiator scientist. His job was to build a new radiator for our Beatrice the Bendix motorhome. No one knows radiators like Larry and our vocabularies expanded by talking with him. It was easy to appreciate his glasses, hat, rubber gloves and rubber boots. Some men know guitars. Some men know rocks. This man seriously knows radiators. He was awesome!...

Things I never posted last year of my three-month cross-country rubbertramp trip with Alyssa, November 16th:
Necromance was another oddities shop full of beautifully morbid artifacts and an unusually equal balance between human and non-human animal pieces. There were of course plenty of washed bones of dead animals and the pinned preserved bodies of insects, but unlike many other shops we felt relied too heavily on taxidermy and animal corpses, this place was also full of authentic human parts. We of course asked the woman working about how their animal parts were acquired and got told they were all allegedly scavenged naturally while other things were secondhand antiques. They also had preserved spiderwebs, antique medical and surgical tools, vintage zoological prints, rocks and minerals, and jewelry.
As always, we purchased nothing. The sale of dead animal parts will never sit well with me, though certain conditions do seem like ethical grey areas. Thankfully, we can browse these places as if they were free museums. This was one of the more tasteful curio shops we visited.

Vatican: 120 meter long corridor with 40 enormous and highly accurate maps aligned on both sides. The project began in 1580 and took just 18 months to complete. #atlasobscura

Once a cutting edge hospital to treat TB and mental illness, the ruins of Beelitz-Heilstätten Sanitorium gather dust and memories in a tranquil forest near Berlin. But not for very much longer - cranes and construction equipment parked outside indicate imminent renovation. But for now we can still slip through the gates and explore the old buildings. 
More photos to follow. .

The throwbacks keep on coming! Y’all know where this one is, so slightly off-brand, but I think it turned out great!

Have you been to Mayberry? Mt. Airy, North Carolina was the real life inspiration for the town from The Andy Griffith Show. Fans can tour the Andy Griffith Museum, which contains memorabilia from the actors career, and go on a squad car tour of the town. You can even visit during Mayberry Days, an annual festival with star appearances.
