In Which I reveal to You Where Odyssey (from AIO) Is

Grab your atlas, running shoes, (Spanish to English translator,) and a good book! You ready? Let’s go, fam!

Alright, before I start, I’d like to say a few things. 1) CWW HAS ENDED!!! *sad* Neither the Fire, Water, nor Air Team won. The Fire Team was ahead in words, while the Water Team was ahead in hours. 2) I JOINED YWW AGAIN!!! After…*counts* *despises math* Um… around four months… yeah.

Now on with the post!!

I know, I know, this doesn’t have anything to do with writing, and not really much about Christianity, but I did say I would post random things every once in a while.

Anyway… I shall begin!

Many people have argued over where Odyssey (from Adventures in Odyssey) is located. I had an assumption based on several different facts. Then… I listened to an episode where it revealed the location. (Coincidentally, it was one of the very first episodes that started AIO, and is only available to members of the AIO club).

Where is Odyssey?








 My friends,




 is in Ohio.




Yep. Before I reveal in which episode I found out factually, let me give you my reasons why I believed it was in Odyssey before.

  1. Odyssey is a drive, plane ride, and train ride from Chicago. It takes a day to get there by car and less by train and plane, and that’s the time it takes for people from Odyssey, not to mention that they often go to and talk about Chicago. To prove the car distance… when I went to Ohio once, it took a day to drive there, and planes and trains are quicker.
  2. In the episode Unsinkable, part 2, a character mentioned that Odyssey was around halfway between Chicago and New York, but closer to Chicago. That also means that Odyssey is east of Chicago, limiting many options.
  3. Just their general lives could be considered very midwestern.

Those are a few bits of reasons.

Now for the hardcore fact: Here is the first sentance in the episode (bonus, really) BONUS! Whit’s Visitor: “This is family portraits. A look at life as it’s lived day to day in the small town of Odyssey, Ohio.”

*when he hears this for the first time, his eyes widen and his jaw drops*

Of course it’s in Ohio.


As for the more absolute location of Odyssey, this area is where I believe Odyssey is (I sent it to a friend before I actually discovered  that Odyssey was in Ohio):

My reasons are basically the same as stated earlier( 1) around halfway between New York and Chicago, but closer to Chicago 2) day-long car drive from Chicago 3) midwestern) except for one: in at least one episode they mention that Odyssey is close to the state border.


There you have it friends. Tell all those questioning listeners about this post (and don’t forget to tell them to subscribe!) so they will know them FACTS. *whispers* The not-that-dirty secret of Odyssey!

With God’s Help,
