Hello there, fellow travelers of the road.

Are you intrigued yet? You should be. GO:

(Til You Get Enough)

GAZE.

That sky. That sky.

The Cracks, the Cracks, the Cracks in the Pavement

The prizes are stashed to the northeast. Find them and unwrap them and you may find your destiny. You may also meet despair. You may also meet Monty Hall. Careful, there are ghouls about.

All of the Children Are Dead

Or, they have all fled from here, their bare feet tramping the yellowed grass, all equally as dead as their souls.

WELCOME TO THE FORT.

THE GAZE.

The Flip-Flopped Wanderer

Can a wanderer catch a ride?

No, he cannot.

Why?

BECAUSE THERE IS NO ONE LEFT DUH.

Only frames and fiberglass.

Parched Times in Indiana

IS THAT CIVILIZATION IN THE DISTANCE?

Wouldn’t you like to know.
