[edit] Expedition

My wife was out and about with the GPS this afternoon, so when she was heading home I had her swing by the office to drop it off for me to use after work. I left the office shortly after 4:00 and drove to the cemetery without issue. It took a little walking around to get the coordinates to line up, plus I was trying not to walk on the graves. But I did it in the end, and found the resident Coffin Potato to be one Gertrude Wenzel, wife of Henry, died age 71. I took a few pictures and left after about 5 minutes.
