Welcome to Outta the Way!

Outta the Way is your guide to places that are - well - out of the way places you may not have known about: some of historical note, some a little weird or odd, a few macabre but all are unique, and most importantly, inexpensive!

Maybe it was instilled in my head as a child. Some of my earliest memories include riding around in the back of my dad's pick-up truck with my older sisters (it was the '80's) scouring the back roads of Toad Road. I didn't know the stories and the legends about the place, but it was always creepy and certainly strange. By my teenage years when I was able to hit the open road on my own, I would always find myself drawn to the weird and odd places. The more sinister, the better. My friends and I would search the rural back roads looking for anything out of the ordinary.

By my 20's I was raising a family and didn't have much time to search the underbellies of society. But as my daughter got older and the bills got higher, I found myself drawn back into this odd fascination, only this time there was no holding me back.

Seems as my fascination grew, so did a lot of other folks. By my late 20's I had discovered quite a bit of information on haunted, historical and odd spots all over. So my girlfriend, my daughter and myself went out in search. We discovered how much fun as a family we could have, without spending much money. Plus my daughter was learning about history (just don't don't tell her that) even if some was a little odd or macabre.

As I began to share my stories of travel with others. They seemed very interested and intrigued by my adventures. They wanted to know how they could find these places. Quite a few of the spots are very rural and difficult to find. My girlfriend instilled into my mind the idea of a travel zine. A chance for others who are as disturbed as me to visit odd locales. What would I offer? Truth be told quite a few of the places we visit can be found with a bit of research.

So what I've done is combined 4-5 locations within a general area for a day full of adventure and mystery. I supply photos so you know exactly what you're looking for. And most importantly, I give you accurate driving directions to these often difficult to locate oddities. I visit all of these locations before anything else.

We feel if you into these adventures with an open mind, you'll find as much enjoyment in these trips as we have. So get Outta the Way, we're going Outta the Way!
