About J. Eric SmithExecutive Director, Salisbury House Foundation.
Having learned how to drive on the back/dirt roads in that part of the country, I admire how well you capture the wanderlust they inspire.
There is nothing quite like it here on the East coast…you never truly get lost driving around upstate NY. Out there, though, it felt like you could drive forever and not see a soul.
It really is different out here, you’re right. I did a ton of dirt road driving this weekend . . . felt good!!!
What a thrill to hear of your adventure to discover and mark THAT spot in Iowa which I randomly glanced upon in 1978!
Thank you for your documentation and the expansive writings on other Iowian phenomena!
Very best regards,
It’s always wonderful how random choices can come to have special meaning over time . . . thanks for kind feedback!
The thorough detective’s mantra is there are no coincidences!
True true true . . . so when “Senterville” became “Centerville” due to a typographical error in recording the town’s incorporation papers, it was but another small step of random occurrences creating meaning from chaos . . .
“It’s tragic magic, there are no coincidences . . . though sometimes the pattern is more obvious” (Neil Innes, “Keynsham”).
Is that Neil Innes as in The Ruttles, BDDDBand!?

I was influenced by the proximity to Centreville… A case of typographical triangulation?
It’s probably for the best that you didn’t know about Centerville’s Pancake Day, as your interrupted train of thought might have then skewed toward buttery, syrupy roundness, rather than lines of longitude and latitude . . . http://www.centerville-ia.com/pages/PancakeDay/
