    The mission was to get New England UrbEx Alliance members to
    come to the off limits graveyard at Danvers State Hospital and plant
    tulips next to all the grave markers that still did'nt have names.
    First off many thanks to Anna Schuleit for donating all the flowers we
    planted last night. Its quite fitting that the tulips used for bloom made
    their way to this location. Also many thanks to Paula, Karen and all
    the help they got at MMHC for picking up the flowers on thursday.
    Many thanks to John Archer for letting us keep the flowers in his yard.
    Thanks to John G for making sure this dream came alive. But most of
    all thank you to , Mark, Ethan, Nine, Ross, Kate, Sher and Tia for
    lumping all those flowers up the hill and for helping us plant them.

    Tonight was a night for UrbExers to give back, And oh did we ever

    Thursday I get a call from DSIA, saying my little idea
    of getting Anna to give us some flowers is underway.
    He tells me mark is really gung ho for it and we
    should start really setting this up. After 3 days of plans
    backfiring. Karen ( fascinated ) offers to pick up 200
    tulips from bloom with Paula from visceral axis and
    bring them to John Archers house till it was time for
    OTT. Somewhere midafternoon on friday yours truly
    shows up at John A's house to load my truck with
    tulips. Then off to the path in the woods, where I
    draged the tulips to the base of the hill at the corner of
    the graveyard. 9:30 pm, we meet at stop and shop.
    Only to have Nine say. " how are we going to plant
    these we don't have shovels ?". Well we decide to go
    into Stop and shop to see if they carry garden tools

    Nope, and I tell you I was really close to buying a soup spoon to
    dig with. So we split up. Half our group goes to home depot for
    tools and the other half heads for the hill to start placement of the
    flowers. We didnt have enough for every head stone, but we did
    have enough for the people who just had a numbered stone
    without a name, For me I felt these were the people who really
    should have the tulips planted next to them.

    All in all the mission was a success. Thank you soooo much to
    everyone who helped make this happen,

    And don't think after the shovels were put away that the flashlights
    did'nt come out. We are urban explorers you know =)
