Where's AH #11

One clue, city specific.

We are in the hometown of a very famous, very rich creepy guy who has done so many things to a fictional town it shouldn't even exist, even in our imaginations.
(Extra credit for naming the creepy guy and his fictional town)

Cheers!

(Typo in title: Should be Where's AJ. Dog was licking my arm.)

Okay, what about Waukegan, Illinois?

stephen king? (no idea, that's just what came to mind first.)

I was thinking of Ray Bradbury's Green Town loosely based on his home town of Waukegan. He used it in Dandelion Wine and Something Wicked This Way Comes.

I'm thinking Steven King and Norway, Maine …. That's my guess 🙂

I'll go with Stephen King too. His hometown is Durham Maine, but everyone usually says it is Bangor, so I'll go with Bangor Maine - can't think of any industry in Durham. ;).

I just read the part about extra credit about the creepy town - I'll guess Durham. 🙂

I should have said "Where he currently makes his home." But I think everyone basically got it….except the fictional town he has destroyed over the years. Keep going....:D

Yes, ma'am. You get the extra credit for naming the town.

Agile gets it for naming the creepy guy.

We stayed the night in Bangor.

Cheers!

Did you stay at Dysart's?

Yes, and I'm here again. Went up north to drop and picked up at the same place. No big hurry to get to next location, but probably pull out tomorrow morning. I went through Monticello and Mars Hill. Love that area. I actually started looking at real estate up there.

Every time I go through Mars Hill, I wonder if it was the idea town for Derry….the name of the town SK used in the book IT.

Talking of Steven King, my favourite book/film is the shining. I have watched it loads of times and find it realy scary and atmospheric 😮

Ha, ha…there are a lot of towns in Maine like that! I love Stephen King - his writing has improved so much over the years. BTW, did you know that his house now has wrought iron fencing around it that has bats, cobwebs, etc. :D:D

I usually love Maine, but I'm so over power outages - we had another one yesterday, 5 hrs because of the high wind! Should be our last though at my house as we're putting in a propane generator that automatically goes on the minute the power goes out. YAY!

Houston

…Oh, I want one of those generators too..they are just so darn expensive..We need them down here too, if we have a storm, our neighborhood of 25 or so homes are one of the last on the list to get our power back..it sucks..
We do have a generator that is large enough to either run the fridge and a few lamps, OR our waterpump..so you have to pick your battles when the electricity goes..

Yeah, see my problem is I want the whole house automatically on when the power goes out - gone are the days when I find it an adventure! As it is, I've compromised and were only doing the first floor (including all kitchen, laundry, office, bedrooms, bath, basement - furnace, well/water) and the only thing on the 2nd floor will be the bathroom.

During the ice storm last winter we lost power for 4 days. During the ice storm of 98 (?) we lost power for 17days - CNN was filming right in front of our house. :eek:
