Why work for people who think your output is worthless?
Eli! Seems you like art and neat historical towns. If your trek back east finds you close to my neck of the woods you may enjoy checking out Nashville, IN in the hills of BC. It is a fairly high traffic tourist town April-Oct. You can look up the history, but is/was an Artist Colony. It also has a KOA in Gnawbone about 5 min away.
