My first job ever, other than delivering newspapers as a kid, was the full service boy at the BP gas station located at Cedar & Green: South Euclid, Ohio - or was it University Heights, but should have been Beachwood.  Not many old Sohio gas stations in Cali, so pretty cool seeing Cleveland written across the job that paid for my college; Cleveland State University.  Go Vikings!

It's refreshing writing this post, actually trampling through the forest on a legit trail.  Missouri, Show Me!  If you're going to drive from St. Louis to KC, venture south of the freeway and travel through the Ozarks and climb to the highest point.  So much more to see in Mizzou and I will return.  For now, on our way to Cleveland, MO...

This Cleveland was not found in my original research, but I had to drive through Iowa to get back to Cali and I discovered this area on Google.  So, we took the slight detour through the middle of nowhere and found absolutely nothing at all - not even a sign.  There were some side gravel roads, well graded, but we didn't drive down there in the bus.  Unlikely any signs or stores, just some agricultural residential.  Cleveland is not far from the bigger town of Bloomfield.  By the way, in doing my research, I later found another Township of Cleveland in Iowa in the northwest corridor near Sioux Falls.  We'll save that one for another trip.  Exciting, huh?!
