Ghost Town

I’ve got a package heading my way by means of UPS and of course I’m tracking it via their web-interface.

This morning I noticed that it had gone from Hodgkins, IN to Hodgkins, IL, taking about an hour to go from one to the other, and that caught my attention. I looked for both towns on Google Local and MapQuest, but no dice, it would only find the one in Illinois.

I also verified this by searching Dict.org‘s U.S. Gazetteer Places (2000) database, which turned up only one Hodgkins in the entire U.S…

This of course begs the question: Where the hell was the package during that half hour stay in Hodgkins, IN??
