Salem Location Revealed

We received this inquiry this week which we never got around to answering.

Q: Vampire Bear said... Prevuze, help! This is driving me nuts now that I am actually seeing it. How can they sail around the world if they are leaving from a port somewhere in the MidWest? Unless they are leaving from a suburb of Chicago which could in theory be connected to Lake Michigan which I think may somehow lead outside of the country somehow.

A: After years of searching, based on information in the show, knowing such things as Salem is near the sea, a convenient drive from New York, a convenient drive from Chicago, near the 32nd parallel, has cold winters, is located in the Midwest and other things, researchers have finally determined the location of Salem...

Your're SO right! I have often wondered this myself. This can be the only answer! I love your site. It's the first one I check every morning, and it always starts my day off with a good laugh. I love the way you see the humor in even the lamest of storylines. I am just as devoted to your site as I am to DOOL.

I really began to wonder, too, exactly how Salem could be in the Midwest when they took a kid out one time "to gather seashells".

I'm glad Prevuze finally answered this mystery! HAHAHAHAHHAHA

Thanks for the weekend edition, it's alway a great Prevuze treat. :D

Just a thought but, it almost looks like something in that picture has already been enlarged...

This MUST be the answer to where Salem is! Not only Because of all the locator clues that Prevuze lists, but Salem is within a half-hour drive from the mountains and Green Mountain Lodge, within 5-10 minute small-engine plane ride to the Caribbean, accessible to the Hawaain islands by private submarine, not to mention large enough to have an airport that handles non-stop flights to every city in the world at 30 minute intervals!

I believe the DOOL writers need a geography lesson. HAHAHA

Another Salem a small town or a big city? Seems like years ago, they always made like it was a smallish town. Then when they started the whole Stephano/organized crime thing, it turned into a big city (international airport, "mean streets", etc.) However, characters still say things like "Everyone in Salem knows..." as if it's a small town. Last week Will refered to "Salem High" as if there's only one high school in the town.

Thanks Prevuze. I'm so glad I found this site; now I don't have to waste an hour every day watching the show.
