“We took the latest print edition of The Lansing Journal — hot off the presses on Friday — with us for our Memorial Day Weekend camping trip,” wrote Tom and Terri Stallinga. On their way down, explained Terri, they stopped in the small town of Gays, Illinois, to visit “what they affectionately call, ‘The Skycrapper,’ a two-story outhouse. It used to have a two-story motel attached to it, but that is long gone.”

About The Lansing Journal Journeys
The Lansing Journal Journeys is an award-winning feature that showcases people displaying The Lansing Journal in creative locations.
We initiated the series because we are a community newspaper, and we like to see community faces in our pages and community names in our photo credits.
To participate, your location doesn’t have to be exotic or far; it just has to have The Lansing Journal in it somewhere. Email photos to [email protected] and tell us:
- The names of any people (or animals) in the photo
- Some information about the location
- The name of the person who took the photo
We’ll publish them online as soon as possible. Make sure you are subscribed, so you see your photos when we post them!
