Over the last week, Kim and I got to enjoy some of the best Pizza ever!. It is from the New Bethel Ordinary. For a write up about it, check out this waymark. One thing I love about the pizza is how filling it is. One to two slices will fill even the hungriest adult. Yum! I think it was amusing that when we were trying to figure out the logistics of going, we checked out the waymark we had made rather than googling for a website. I look waymarking and using it for the information we need. That's why the website was made.
Speaking of waymarking, I got to enjoy doing some benchmark hunting, geocaching and waymarking. It was nice to get a mix in since I have been finding way too many micro caches lately. Yuck! Micros have their place but a steady diet of them is less than satisfying. Having a mix is a great solution if you are in any kind of rut.

There is a category of waymarks called Static Artillery Displays. I recently listed the one pictured above. This is the information I found out about the Armory and the Hotwitzer.
A little history on the Lebanon National Guard Armory and the HOwitzer
Battery C, 2ND Battalion 150TH Field Artillery Regiment
The building was dedicated on July 4, 1941 to replace the old armory located on Indianapolis Avenue. At that time, the howitzers were pulled by horses.
The piece sitting in front of the Armory is an M110A2 Self-Propelled, 8-inch howitzer. This piece was fielded to the unit in 1972 when the battery changed from towed 8-inch to self-propelled.
In 1996, the Battery changed back to a towed unit and changed from Battery D to Battery C. At that time, this 8-inch howitzer was demilitarized and placed in front of the armory on display.
The M110A2 Self-Propelled 8 inch was manned by a crew of 7 and could fire its 200-plus pound shell up to 18.6 miles with devastating accuracy. The howitzer’s lethality was defined by a 75-meter kill radius and a 200-meter burst area. This howitzer was last fired at Camp Atterbury in June 1996 before being demilitarized for display.
The link for this waymark is here.

Second of all, they change their name from the Wizards to the Tin Caps. This is to honor Johnny Appleseed. I find this funny since they are moving their stadium further away from his grave site.
Third os all, one part of this project of getting a new stadium was to make some more condos. Since there is such a down turn in reality due to the banking crisis, they are having to make this a smaller project. I wondered from the start if this a project born of Cadillac eyes and now I am getting more certain of it. Dumb, really dumb.
Check out their website here.
