665. Erie, Neosho County (KS082)

I would probably be more disappointed in this courthouse had Fredonia not already maxed out my disappointment meter (at least, I hope it did). On any other day, this would probably have been rated 3/10 in my book at best. After the Tragedy of Fredonia, though, I’ll give it a shaky 4.5/10. That said, despite the cornerstone there, I do not believe this courthouse was erected in 1904. I only wish it were.

Once again, there’s always a cemetery. I grabbed this one on the way into town, another Micro in a tree, but this time with thorns! I sometimes worry that I’m starting to sound jaded about cemetery caches. I’m not, but I think out of the hundreds of cemeteries I’ve been to in the thousands of caches I’ve found, I can probably count the truly good cemetery caches on both hands. This day especially, I was running about 33% decent when it came to that, but I guess I shouldn’t complain too much. As I have often said, a cache is a cache is a cache. Jeebus knows I could start sorting for favorite points out on the road, but I don’t. Any lack of quality in caches I find can be significantly (though not entirely) faulted to me. But again, something something undiscovered country, something new horizon something something. At least (spoiler alert) I would be pleasantly surprised with the cache I would find on the way to…

  1. In the east, it’s hard because many cemeteries were family cemeteries from early settlements and have fallen into really bad disrepair. Many times I can’t even read the stones any more; they are so faded. I do enjoy visiting them, though. I think geocachers are about the only people who do sometimes.
