You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Bellbrook, Oh Bellbrook


Sunday, Aug 12, 2007 from Bellbrook, Ohio

I got a late start leaving Columbus this afternoon. Slept in late, watched a movie, ordered pizza, filled up my tank, and visited. Finally, along the road I went, making my way west once again and driving into more sunsets. I’m surrounded by fields of corn and it feels like the beginning of the trip, but it’s the end. Strange! Bellbrook, OH is my latest stop of the trip, a town of about 7,000 people just outside of Dayton. It seems to be the quiet Midwest life. Maybe after being out of the Midwest for so long it’ll seem strange to submerge myself in the Midwest life again. I’m rambling again…

My connection to Bellbrook goes like this. My old boss from Michigan State now lives in St. Petersburg, FL. Her boss nominated his brother Jim. So that’s that. A wonderful family of four, Jim, Cathy, and their two daughters Keeley (20) and Morgan (17). You can never go wrong by being greeted with a steak and potato dinner. It was a good start.

Something I haven’t commented on is the first night at a host, especially this late in the trip. At the beginning there just weren’t any stories to tell and not as many questions asked. But now the questions start coming fast from every direction! It’s a blast. First nights with hosts are some of the best. Those first nights are usually full of long conversations into the night and good food.
