    He's talking about Etna Green, it's right on 19/us30. Little tiny town, makes LaPorte look like NYC. I know cause I'm from just down the road in Warsaw.

    The Crown Bicycle, made by the Great Western Manufacturing Company of La Porte, is one of this museum's prized possessions. It is mostly original and although repainted, it maintains the original pattern of stripes. The carbide '-'Solar" brand light is a period accessory. The bicycle was also donated by Clarence R. Smith.

    a couple new pics... the woods are Right outside my front door, about 30 feet away. My daughters and I made a trail through it a few years ago and re-did it this year. Cant tell from the pics but it goes down a bit then comes back up on the other side.
    Ive been riding it alot lately.
    There is a family of foxes living there and a deer or two. One night some owls were making quite a racket...mating season...we heard a tree branch break!! :shock:
    the deer pic is about 40 feet out from the back door :D
