We were driving through the small town of Myopic River, Oregon when I saw a store called "McBride's Insulation." The sign on the door read, "Shane McBride, Owner/Foundered [sic] 1926." The rust-decorated pickup out front had bumper stickers with such things as "Gas-Grass-Ass/Nobody Rides Free", "CALL ME! 1-800-BIG-STUD", and "We Have No Shame Here" on them. I have no idea what it was all about; the town was only 423 people according to the sign at the town line. I cannot conceive of THE Shame's relatives crossing the plains in a wagon or coming by boat except as stowaways or surviving the vigilantes if they did make it.
In another town there was a historical marker for "Rutledge's Hotel." Apparently it was a rooming house for working women and was run by a woman from England. It closed in 1957.
I think that was in Malchance.
