Thanks . . .
I'm originally from Fort Wayne and live in Kokomo.  I've never been in 
Terre Haute except to drive through it on I-70 and U.S. 40 (IMHO that 
doesn't really count).  Things have changed considerably in Fort Wayne 
too.  The neighborhood around the house my father had built in Fort Wayne 
is completely different.

One of my unfinished projects is photographically documenting life along 
U.S. 40 (aka the Old National Road) from Richmond (Indiana) to Terre 
Haute.  Started on it several summers ago and quickly realized it would 
require considerably more effort than a couple spring and summer months . . 
. likely several years of working on it a few months each year . . . and 
shelved it.  Haven't abandoned the idea, but it will require undivided 
attention when I pick it back up again.  I need to do more in-depth 
research before continuing, and there is other work I want to finish before 
continuing it.  In the little time already spent on U.S. 40 in Richmond and 
Terre Haute, I found both interesting.
