As I unpacked my meager belongings, hunger suddenly engulfed me, a restaurant was across the street, that would be my next destination. With a full stomach, the only thing on my mind was getting a good nights rest, I wanted to fully enjoy the next day visiting Fredericksburg, Virginia.

That was not to be, I found myself wide awake at 2:30 in the morning, my mind was racing. Realizing there was no need to try and sleep I got up and opened my atlas of the United States and began thumbing through the pages, I had no idea what I was looking for. Soon I was checking the maps of Virginia, Indiana, and New Mexico. I began drawing lines on the United States map, noticing that US highway 60 runs from Richmond Virginia to Clovis New Mexico and beyond.

There seemed to be a correlation between Clovis and Roswell, the site of the 1947 UFO crash. While drawing my little circles and lines, I also noticed that if one would draw a line from Richmond Virginia to southern Indiana, my home, and on to Roswell and back to Richmond Virginia, it would form a perfect triangle.

It is now several years later and I still have no clue as to the significance of all this. Since I lost a good nights sleep over it, I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me. It seems the more I learn the less I know.
