“Hey! Welcome to the next installment of the Adventures of Oericthegn! Well, we're going to play another round of the game again of 'Where Am I Now?' It's been a few hours since my last report, so here are some clues.
The first one: When you walk across the chasm, faces are smiling back at you.
Number 2: It goes both ways.
And number 3: I named a D&D character after this location.
I'll give you a moment to think about it.
Okay. So, I'm currently at the half-way point to Pennsic, or at least that's what those of us from Syracuse call it -- the half-way point. Yes, it is the Eden Angola rest area!
So, some hints about these clues:
The Faces: If you walk across the bridge to the rest area, you look down on the road, you'll see a couple of smiley faces staring up. Somebody made these faces out of the tar that they used on the road.
It goes both ways: It's one of the few rest areas that's actually in the middle of I-90 in New York State. It sits right on the middle island so either direction you're going, you have to walk across a bridge to get to it.
And D&D: Well, just for fun I decided to roll up a character, made it female, and called her Eden Angola. Unfortunately the campaign didn't last as long as the character.
Well, that's it for now. I'll be back again when I reach my next stopping point. See ya!”
