It’s funny because I rolled into Franklin wondering where the courthouse was. I looked left and right but couldn’t spot it. Then all of a sudden, BOOM! How could I have missed this? Interesting note: as I was walking around the place, I noticed that the cornerstone was noted as being laid in 2011 (it was also Masonically laid, which is a different interesting). Apparently, it was fairly recently rebuilt to emulate an 1882 courthouse so this is one I haven’t seen before: a newer courthouse built in a much older style.
So I went for a stroll around the corner to grab a nearby cache. It had rained both while I was driving there and just before I parked so I was sweating like something that sweats a whole lot. But it was worth it.
Guess which one is the cache? I don’t usually like going on private property, but at least it was close enough to the property edge to not have to feel too worried. That and the light traffic/muggle level made it reasonable. Log signed, swag traded, water dripping from my brow, I headed back to the car to head off to…
[ADDENDUM] On the way to Franklin, I decided to take a quick side trip to hit a cemetery just off the road. There were visible livestock and no lines on the road, which are the defining conditions for “beyond [freaking] Egypt”.
Nothing special… Just a camoed [Noxema?] jar in a crack in a tree. But it was there and I need cemeteries, too.
