#3 : hell

so, my dad and i are huge fans of survivor...

and one of the cast members (erik) is from... HELL! (michigan that is!)

erik works at an ice cream shop in hell, michigan. my dad lives only about 30 minutes from HELL, so off we went! we even had ice cream at "Screams", the shop where erik works! let me tell you... it is really good to know that there is ice cream in hell... i would have missed it! lol!

erik is known for being the dumbest survivor ever... however, i think he was great. he is a very trusting guy that got suckered by the girls!

here is his bio from the show...

"Erik Reichenbach, a true SURVIVOR junkie, was too young to be in the first 14 seasons of Survivor. Reichenbach religiously studied the game from the comfort of his home, until he was of age to audition. Determined to play the game, Erik practiced his survival skills last summer off a small island in Florida. Reichenbach was born and raised in Pinckney, Michigan.

He is currently in his senior year of studying art at Eastern Michigan University, and is a member of the college's track team. Reichenbach works at an ice cream parlor called "Screams" in Hell, Michigan, where he also designs t-shirts, hauls canoes and entertains his customers. He previously worked in landscaping, construction and as a freelance graphic designer. His hobbies include drawing, writing comic books, rock-climbing and studying philosophy/religion. He describes himself as animated, earnest and familiar. He is very proud of his running accomplishments during his senior year of high school, where he set the school's 400 yard record (49.3 seconds), and being able to run in the Nike Outdoor Nationals in Carolina. Reichenbach is a member of the Eastern Michigan Cross Country and Track team, Pinckney Pirate Track and Field Alumni and a rock climbing club.

Reichenbach believes he'll go far on SURVIVOR because he is a good listener, entertaining, optimistic, athletic, a creative thinker and can easily be a leader or a follower. Reichenbach is currently single and lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, with his cats, Furrball and Kittyfizzle (K-Fizz for short). His birth date is November 27, 1985. "

we started chatting with a couple of ladies that were working in the country store and then at screams! they were so nice and very proud of erik!

screams is also a halloween store! i love halloween! it was so fun! lots of little things for the holiday... most of them were for the scary halloween and i do much more of the cute and fun halloween... but it was still amazing!

i have to say... my overall experience to hell was great! i would love to go back! lol!

Funny! We have this place in our county called Hell Fer Certain. From the stories I have heard, the midwives rode out there on thier horse and said this is Hell Fer Certain and that is how it got its name. The post office though was not allowed to use that name so it went by something else, lol! Well anyways I like Survivor too and I think that is great that you got to go visit there.
