After visiting President Garfield's House, the folks set out to find some covered bridges. Mama realized on Friday that finding the bridges was not going to be as easy as she had thought. She had a list of all the bridges, but the directions just said how far each bridge were from each other. It didn't say which direction to go. A map could be ordered for free but it could only be delivered by mail because it is a tri-fold. We are not sure why they just can't copy both sides of it and send that by email. It seems easier than mailing them. Mama saw that there was a map that could be ordered for $3.95, but again, it needed to be mailed. She called the visitors center to see if they she could buy the map in person any where. She left a message as the voice mail she reached told her to do, but no one returned her call. The visitors center is closed on Saturday. She called on Friday. So, they set out with the GPS set to the town the first covered bridge was said to be in and since the bridge seemed to be named after a road, they entered that. BINGO! They stumbled upon a sign that said "Covered Bridge Tour". They followed the sign.
