I didn't know Old Man McDonald was buried around here...
Is it just me, or does the little map on the cache page have Colorado route numbers?
Top of the page says it is in Ohio.

I think it was the burial site of the McRib.

Looks like the Colorado state flag over those Ohio route numbers. Those are county roads, maybe something confused the COunty road number with COlorado.

Check out the power trail about 10-12 miles west of this cache.

Isn't that the Power trail that Mr. Thunter did on his bike last year.

At the East Swanton cemetery on Scott Rd.

If it's a bit too inappropriate, I can "fix" it.

Thanks Cheech for the technical help. I had heard about this one from a guy that was doing family research. My grandparents grave site is just a couple of rows away, you can see the headstone in the big photo above, just over the top of the Campbell stone.

Looks like Russ of Handyman & Fam may have found out more than he bargained for in South Plainfield, NJ.

Unusual is an understatement for that one. Wow!
