It is a huge property. I met ancient old-timers who could recall being allowed to fish in the river and eat what they caught. For a long time they grew most of their own food.

Interesting places, both.

Some of the personnel get a little concerned when you ride the gravel and get off the beaten path. Thankfully, I have permission from the warden.
Na, we stayed on the paved road. I had a couple of freinds with me that had never been across the river there.

Thumb Shameless Plug

Always willing to try something new, I ventured out at lunch and hit the new "restaurant" that occupies the former Chillin' and Grillin' at the corner of Willson and New Market Roads.

Now called Hammy's Varina Grill, the owner is cook, waiter, and chief bottle washer. I had one of his thick (~1/2") Bologna Burgers with cheese and fries. Total was $4.97.

Interior is sparse, but the food I got was very good. He'll also fix ahead of time if you call in your order. The owner is very friendly and is obviously looking for more customers. Personally, I'll be going back.

Yes!!! They seem to be popular up here.

Nice thick slice (1/2-5/8" thick), with melted cheese (optional) and sauteed onions (also optional)...... splash of spicy mustard.

Poifect!

Guy

Good call Jimmy! Now there's definitely not room inside, but when we have some consistantly good weather we might be able to meet up for a bite outside.

Guy, is the patio set up like it was under Chillin/Grillin name?

Some good roads out that way too.

Ex-PA dude myself...... but from the other side of the state. The town I was raised was a melting pot of all cultures, so I was raised on all sorts of ethnic fare. A "burrough" of New Castle, Mahonningtown was the best - 101% Italian.

Then there was "sheep hill" and Slovacian(sp?) mom and pop restaurants.

Durn!! Fortunately, my sister married into that culture and learned to cook from the best of them - her mother-in-law (now deceased) - an immigrant from the old country. Visits to my sisters in St. Clairsville, OH has us eating all sorts of good stuff.

But for basics, Scrapple is good.... especially when cooked up with a mess of eggs.

Dayum!! I'm gettin' hungry again..

Google Map question

I know you can enter GPS coordinates directly into the Search window and get a hit, but can you get coordinates from a map location you've selected?

Thought I stumbled on that once before; maybe not.
