From the Gibson County HP, I made my way south to my next destination, the HP of Vanderburgh County.

0.0 - Parked at Gibson County HP – Proceed north on Old Petersburg Road
0.4 - Turn left (west) on CR 225N - aka Bald Hill Road
1.8 - Arrive at Old US 41 - continue straight (west)

26.9 - Turn left (south) on Bromm Road and wind east

28.1 - Arrive and park next to a large tree, near mailbox "11925"

As I stepped out of my car, I scanned the surroundings and noted that the highest ground was right next my car, near this large tree. I walked over to the large main house, signed as “11921”. A sign on the porch stated “homeowner since 1997”, so I was expecting to meet the same people that had greeted Bob S. on his 2001 visit.

I knocked at the door and could hear the Colts football game playing on the TV. A man answered the door and introduced himself as John Talley. I apologized for interrupting the football. He told me it didn’t matter much because he is now a Denver Broncos’ fan, following Peyton Manning when the Colts traded him.

He led me off the porch and over to the tree where I had parked. “You’re on the highest ground”, he proclaimed. We talked a bit more, and then I thanked him for allowing me to visit his property. I returned to my car, pleased with how easy this county was conquered. I was ready to visit my next stop, Posey County, less than 10 miles away.
