    I keep coming across TR in Bag of bones. Im not sure if it means truck route? or some type of coordinates? It seems as though this TR is used as different meanings throughout the book. Could someone please explain to me what this TR means?

    I know what you're referring to but I can't remember the exact meaning of the term. I want to say Transportation Route? Or maybe it's Township Route?

    I'm struggling to remember also... "The Trail"? "Trail Road/Route"? They're large tracts of land that don't necessarily fit into being labelled as a township.... Marsha will probably know. [ Moderator ]

    Township & Range...I believe Maine has some sort of grid, much the way city streets are numbered...and the number designation that accompanies the "TR" signifies placement on that map or grid...north to south, right to left. We have something even more mysterious here in Michigan but I imagine if one looked at the map and numbers it would begin to make sense...after a six-pack and consulting with others at the bar.

    "TR" is never defined outright in the novel -- it is a Maine zoning code for an unincorporated residential area.

    Walter had it--Township Range followed by a number--and Scott had it for it being an unincorporated residential area.
