The receipts in Jarndyke’s wallet document the mundane purchases most people make on a day-to-day basis. Given the other artifacts in the Jarndyke Ark, however, receipts for items such as bolt cutters and gasoline cans take on a potentially darker dimension. The dates and locations on the receipts were used to establish the path Jarndyke took from Aurora down to Springfield and back up to Stillwater. The documents appear below in chronological order. The last is a parking ticket received in Stillwater in present-day Minnesota on 12/14/NE021; the Jarndyke Ark was found in Luck, Wisconsin, 45 miles to the northeast.
