Hanging in Independence

Arrived in Independence Missouri tonight. It is about 8 miles east of Kansas City, MO and we are going to head into KC to check things out a bit tomorrow before making our way to Nebraska. I will hopefully get a geocache in KC, KS so I can count KS as one of my states. I found one at a rest stop in Missouri today so that state has been added to my map.

We visited this house in Independence today....just did a drive by really but it was so awesome looking and I am sure it has been used in movies, that I just had to post a pic of it. It is called the Vaile Mansion. I will try to see if I can find out more about it. Internet lore discusses it possibly being haunted but I am not sure if that is the real deal or just a matter of looking at the place and thinking it would definitely be just that....

Anyhow, this is just a small update on our travels...will write more tomorrow when we get settled in Nebraska at Gpa's or the hotel....

I will have to look that one up - I love haunted houses as long as I am just visiting and do not have to live in it! Keep posting those pics!
