On the Road Again

Dr. Lobo loves to travel. "How soon can we go on another trip?" he asked a couple of weeks ago.
"Anytime after my writing conference on March 27th," I said. So today, without wasting any time after March 27th, we started out on another trip.
I have to admit that I spent much of today catching up on my sleep while Dr. Lobo drove. It's been a very busy week, culminating in an amazing SCBWI Oklahoma conference yesterday. And this morning started at 6:15 a.m., since I needed to take an editor and an art director to the airport before starting my own trip.
Since only a few people know where I am tonight, I thought it would be fun to see who could figure out what area we drove through today. So here's a little geography quiz for you.
Can you identify this area? Here are a few photos to help you out.
It's a rural area, as you can see.

Here's the local school.

Okay, here are some good clues for you.

Can you name the nearest town in this area? The first person who comes up with the correct answer will win a prize (which is unnamed because it is undetermined at the present time). List the town and state in the comments below. Have fun!
Tomorrow morning we'll be back on the road, heading off for more adventures. (I love retirement!)

Don't forget the prize.

I'm surprised no one has a guess! Maybe all your readers are out on road trips of their own. I have an inkling, but I think I might be disqualified from answering.

Ah, looks like you have to approve your comments, so maybe they are all piled up in a queue waiting for you to get to them!

Strang to the south, Geneva to the North, Shickley to the west and Ohiowa to the east?

Have fun!

Hi, Jeannie!

Loving hearing about your adventures. So glad you are having fun! Is it Strang, Nebraska?

Strang, Nebraska?
I have to admit, I used Google maps. Some might call that cheating, but I call it being resourceful...
Do they pronounce it "strange" or do the locals say something else? I'm very curious to know...

Carol said...

I think you were in Geneva, NE, but now I am afraid I overthought it and everyone will guess right but me!

Even with the clues I'm not going to embarrass myself by taking a guess. Have a blast!

God Bless,
