Welcome back Ned

I swear I walked all over the area last time and found nothing, and I'm pretty good at where's Waldo!!

I picked up Ned around 2pm then rode about 130mi before coming home to post :)

Ned was at the base of the sign welcoming you into Morgan co. on rt522






We stopped for lunch on the way to tag


If you come to get this tag, bring a pillion and picnic and stay awhile.





I'm am way out there placing Ned in the trunk of a hollow tree.


Now you see him...


Now you don't....

Cool history regarding that road...

Responsibilities at church kept me from going.

Almost a year since I tagged that spot... Of course that was with Lucky, so no harm in letting Ned visit Lucky's old stomping grounds

I'll be back in the game soon... Had both me and the bike down for maintenance.

Riding season starts next week! (aka daughter's back in school)

Ned decided he really liked the place that phrank took him for lunch the other day so we decided to stop there.
He was having fun chatting up all the waitresses and I had to go so I left him there... Last I heard he was saying something about hiding behind some shrubbery with one of the waitresses

9-2-13 Labor Day

Okay morning tag... at NCTC... One of the many projects that deceased Sen. Byrd... brought to WV...

No file pics. here...... Ned... sitting there just wanting to go some place new....




Ned on Helmet... saying hurry up...



NEW TAG... Figured since most kids around here are in school now... it is History Time....

xxxxxxxxx is located at the intersection of two trails used by Native Americans: one trail ran southward from Packhorse Ford (near present day Shepherdstown) and the other ran east and west. Besides the transportation advantages these trails afforded, Turkey Run which comes from a large underground spring which forms Lake Louise about one mile east of the village, provided pure water for the area. xxxxxxxxx occupies a small part of the original land grant made to Lord Fairfax by the King of England. When John Smith visited the area in 1729, he found these features attractive. By 1734, he and his son together with John's brother, Rees, had established grist and hemp mills along Turkey Run.
By the time of the Revolutionary War, a small farming and milling community had developed. The Smith family had the town surveyed in 1794 and began selling town lots in 1795. The promotion of the village was quite successful, and in 1798 the town of Smithfield was incorporated.
In 1807, a post office under the name of xxxxxxxxx was established. This name was used to avoid confusion with the other Smithfield in Tidewater Virginia. This post office was located in various buildings in the village at different times. It operated until 1905, when it was closed due to the inception of Rural Free Delivery.
In the early 1800s, the town was a prosperous regional trading center with a main street lined with shops and houses. According to Charles Varle, in 1810 the town had two churches as well as three well assorted stores, an apothecary shop, one distillery, four shoemakers, five weavers, one wagon maker, one saddle-tree maker, one hatter, three blacksmiths, three tailors, and one tanner; and that there was an attorney at law and a physician.
In the 1830s, when the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was planning a railroad line from Harpers Ferry to Winchester, many people assumed its path would follow the traditional travel route through xxxxxxxxx. When the railroad bypassed xxxxxxxxx, and went through yyyyy yyyyy instead, the town began a slow process of attrition. However, the commercial decline helped the village retain its early nineteenth century character, as there was little incentive to tear old buildings down and replace them with newer, bigger, more modern ones.
xxxxxxxxx suffered, along with the rest of the countryside, during the Civil War. For northern armies, Jefferson County was a gateway to the South through the Shenandoah Valley. xxxxxxxxx was at the intersection of two important roads, and it was located close to major trade centers. Soldiers from both the Union and Confederate armies came through the village throughout the war, and several skirmishes occurred in and around the town. At least four doctors lived in xxxxxxxxx, and a building, which still stands, served as a hospital. After the battle of Antietam in 1862, wagons brought wounded soldiers to the hospital, straining its capacity of 50 patients.
The largest engagement in the town was the battle of Smithfield in August 1864. Union losses were placed at 35 killed or wounded, and Confederate losses at 10 killed and 75 wounded. Among the soldiers who died in the fighting were several from North Carolina, who are buried behind the Masonic Hall. Another local reminder of the Civil War is a bullet that is still lodged above the vestry room door of Grace Episcopal Church.


Ned at corner of bldg. nearest bike.

Ned said cover me up said he is afraid of Ghost...

Some more history....

The town has also been known as "Wizard Clip" or "Clip", and townspeople as "Clippers". This is the result of a legend from the 1790s, in which A traveler lodged with Adam Livingston and his family. During the night, the traveler died, calling for a priest. After the stranger's burial, Livingston saw coals popping from his fireplace and tried to remove a phantom rope from the road in front of the house. A constant clipping sound, like that of scissors, pervaded the house. Anyone entering the house had their clothes cut into tatters or half-moon crescents. Livingston contacted a priest in Shepherdstown, Father Dennis Cahill, who exorcised the spirit.



Looks like another nice day... maybe someone has time to get Ned today.

Hope all had a good Weekend....
