hmmmm, I know where that is, now to find the time to go up there, and dodge the rain drops that seem to have moved in.

Found your tag, but would've meant I wouldn't get home until well after dark. So decided against it.

Good tag man.

That's funny, I spent the afternoon in the rain grabbing and dropping the tag.

A little history of S.N.P.J.

From Wikipedia:

S.N.P.J. is a borough located in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. According to the 2000 U.S. census, it has a population of zero, although the borough itself counted 14 residents in 2003.[1]

S.N.P.J. stands for Slovenska Narodna Podporna Jednota (Slovene National Benefit Society), a fraternal society and financial co-operative based in Imperial, Pennsylvania.

The society applied to have their 500 acre (2 km²) recreation center in western Pennsylvania designated as a separate municipality in 1977. The S.N.P.J. borough was created so that the society could, among other things, get their own liquor license.[1] North Beaver Township, Pennsylvania, the municipality in which the center was originally located, restricted the sale of alcohol on Sundays.

S.N.P.J. once had the distinction of being the least-populated borough in the state until a mine fire beneath Centralia made that borough unsafe to live in.

As of 2007, Centralia had a population of 9. I rode there this past weekend and there are still at least 3 or 4 houses being lived in.

Don't know when Google maps photos are taken, but note the green lawns.

Nice spot.

If I wasn't in the middle of the 28 hr. oil change on the 950 I would have went after it tonight. Might have to get the Hardley Drivenson out tomorrow.

Believe it or not, the PA ToR map is fully updated.

Please remember to give a good location after the tag is grabbed, either in the thread, or by sending me a PM.
