Waymarking North Carolina Historic Markers

A few weeks ago, when I was visiting Tyrrell County for the family reunion, I took some time to do some waymarking. Specifically, I was hunting finds in the North Carolina Historic Markers category. It was a very successful weekend, with me picking up all of the markers in Tyrrell County (OK, there was only one there) and all but one of the markers in Washington County.

Here's a list of the markers I found:

Tyrrell County

BB-6 and Me

Washington County

It was lots and lots of fun. I also hit about half the markers in Edgecombe County with yarbiedoll on the way back west. I'm still sorting through those pictures and working to add the waymark entries. Maybe in a week or two, I'll be done with that. In the mean time, in addition to the links to the waymarks above, if you want to look at some of the pictures I've taken while studying the highway markers, you can see them all in my gallery: North Carolina Historic Markers.

Glad you enjoy it. Geocaching and waymarking are both lots of fun. Once you become non-pregnant, you should definitely try it out! I like looking for the caches with geocaching, but I've really been enjoying learning the history I've been learning with the waymarking.

Glad you enjoyed your stop over in my journal. Feel free to add me and keep reading. My journal isn't full of historical-related entries like this, but they come up from time to time. I've really been enjoying learning about NC history via the historical marker category. There's lots of neat stuff like that over on waymarking.com.

Is that actually a pic of you? Somehow I'd come to develop a mental association between you and a pair of western boots....

Yup, that's me. I'm not wearing my boots in that picture. ;-)
