Here are your not-so-subtle hints to help you on your trail!
Stop 1 -
In ‘Donia, they say “come on over”
If good luck is what you seek
Just find that 4-leaf clover
Welcoming you to their Main Street.
Stop 2 -
Perhaps 2020 was a blessing in disguise
Yet, let this Carson theater speak
To all that the name implies
For all to have a lucky streak
Stop 3 -
You’ll find this landmark
In Treynor’s city park
A symbol of pioneer’s brilliance
And a sign of 2021 resilience!
Stop 4 -
Some may say 2020 flew
And some called it a giant pain
Either way, it’s “time” to start a-new
So “Clock” your miles to McClelland’s Main
Stop 5 -
When on this trek you embark
To find that better “path” you’ve sought
Find yourself that Underwood park
Which hints to a fresh, new starting spot
Stop 6 -
In Crescent, it is there for you to see
Just rub the sign and say your prayers
At the Shiny and Newest local DG
In hopes that ’21 does not compare!
Stop 7 -
In Minden, you can create a turn of events
By engaging in legendary rumor
Standing amidst all the triangle represents
Your past, your present, and your future.
Stop 8 -
They say all great works of art
Come from the strongest at heart
So let’s all give ours a fresh new start
By embracing this Shelby Convenience Mart
Stop 9 -
For our 2021, just look a-top
This Avoca Main Stay and keep thinkin’
Journey would say “Don’t Stop…”
While Fred’s would say “Drinkin’”
Stop 10 -
The “signs” we often search
With a dove that has soared
We hunt the Walnut church
To seek hope, calm, and accord
Stop 11 -
To Hancock we shall go
You and the buffalo statue in the snow
To Native Americans, a sign of definite substance
For a chance at life in abundance!
Last Stop 12 -
It’s noticed very seldom
But when you get to Oakland
Find the Centennial welcome
For a super lucky token!
Our wish for you:
When all is said and done
may you have had a little fun
And found your sense of hope
for a peaceful, happy 2021!
We can’t wait to see your fun photos to keep those January blahs at bay!
Happy MLK Weekend!
