ScottCLE saidThere's a town called Helena in Ohio that is about 15 miles east of Bowling Green State University.
The place is in the middle of a corn field. You'd never see a person or any activity. Until you're suddenly being followed by a state trooper.
For years I just assumed that it's propped up store fronts with cop cars parked behind them. Big speed trap!
My home town is like that surrounded by corn, soybean, and peanut fields. Nothing there but a handful of houses, a Dollar General Store, a post office, a fire station, and big grain elevator just east of town. Back when I was in college people would ask me where I was from and I would tell them, sure that they had never heard of it because it is in the middle of bumfuck nowhere and they would all say "Oh yeah I know exactly where that is, I got stopped by a State Trooper there on the way to the beach"
