WE LIVED in DC when I was growing up and we always had relatives and friends visiting because it was a free place to stay and my mother gave great tours for everyone.

What really gave me chills was Arlington. Not ever thinking that I would eventually know people buried there. The changing of the Guards ceremony was just spellbinding.

Old cemeteries , as I said are fascinating.
BUt not for me.
No one will be reading my gravestone on my freshly dug grave in the 28th century just after I died and wonder "Who was that guy?

No marker of any kind.. unless erected by the multitudes in awe of my contributions to mankind... so obviously no marker.

Told the wife I get cremated and then she has to throw my ashes out over a remote glacier of her choice in ALaska. IT will be the only way I will ever get her to go there.

I learned to drive in one of the larger cemeteries in my home town. Lots of twisty roads and gentle hills, so it was a pretty good place for it.

Last summer I went to go bury a grave after a funeral and a guy came over to talk to me and somehow didn't see the big hole in the ground an fell into the open grave( with the casket in it)

I dont think I have ever seen a man so terrified. I am not sure if it was the fall, the grave, or both that scared him so much.

What if you had to chase a bad guy through a cemetery?

Beaufort, South Carolina is one of my favorite places to go to. I've been to that cemetery. There is so much history in that area. Hot as Hades in the summer, but I love it.

We have a local church, a site of a Revolutionary War event, The Battle of Long Island. There are still marks on the fašade from bullets that struck the church. Wandering around looking at head stones, I saw many founders of our towns, roads and other things named for these people.

There is another cemetery that was easy to walk through, it was a good shortcut for us. We would hang out there as kids, very quiet and peaceful. Nobody ever bothered us and we cleaned up before we left. I wonder if local kids still use the place.

Before we left Fla we lived just down the road from a large cemetery. The wife & I regularly drove to it, parked & walked laps around it for exercise.

Sometimes we left candles at the graves of a 17 year old girl who we found out died of an opioid overdose, born the same year as our son & a 14 year old girl who hung herself over bullying. The 14 year old's Mother was often there laying on her grave & the grass was worn down to the dirt. We never spoke to her though as we didn't know how she would take strangers lighting candles to her little girl.

Cemeteries are interesting to me & I wouldn't hesitate to spend the night in one if there was $100 riding on it that I'd chicken out. My biggest fear is that I'd get busted by the cops for sleeping in a grave yard.

I once lived near a graveyard and a friend and I used to walk our horses on a path skirting the edge of the graveyard at night and found it very peaceful . My friends horse was almost white so would be the only thing that shows up in the dark and my horse would just look like a huge dark void that moves . Particularily on foggy nights , I know for a fact we startled some people .

I don't like going in 1 after dark but I love looking for dead people. I had a shirt printed years ago that stated "I love looking for dead people" witha pic of a headstone. LOL, People would give me odd looks.

I've been doing the family history for over 40 years. Back before I got too sick to do it, I would look for old graveyards to see if I had any relatives buried in them. Hoping 1 of these days I can do it again.

Couldn't agree more. I've told my family to put my carcass out with the trash & save money. No reason to spend thousands on a corpse, when the family has babies that need cared for.

Not from Arlington or any other cemetery but Andersonville gave me a chill. Something in the air.

She may find a way around that. Just order some ice from Alaska and have it shipped home. Then dump your ashes on the now slushy water, and wash you off the porch with a garden hose.

I actually love walking through cemeteries. At night too. There's been a couple that i've captured some weird, unexplained images in.
