No-Info Tuesday.......

Hi Everybody...
A buddy of mine's Father-In-Law passed away recently.
His family has owned over 640 acres in the Mountains of
West Virginia for decades.
He has been buggin me to
go with him to visit the place for several years, and since I am
in Dire Need of a vacation, I finally relented.
So this Thursday Morning I am setting out for a very remote
and rustic getaway. All I know at this point is that I drive South on US-77 until I get to The Possum Hollow exit. Any way, I suspect that internet access is quite limited, but I have made arrangements for Friday Flash 55 to go on without skipping a beat.
Details will be disclosed later this week.
Mr. Knowitall has been very busy as of late, and has NOTHING to say tonight!
My Buddy also alluded to the fact that his FIL quite possibly may have dabbled in illegal distillation of alcoholic beveridges....
Really? In God-Fearing Rural West Virginia?
We shall soon find out....
See you tomorrow for One Shot Wednesday...
Peace...!!!

Can't have Mis-spellings, sorry. Possum Hollow! that is Arthur Rackam at his best!! sorry about the circumstances though.

Serena said...

Sorry about the passing of your friend's FIL, but do have yourself a high ol' time in Possum Hollow. You may need the illegally distilled beverage after all that rural communing.

Thom said...

Sorry to hear about the passing of your friends FIL. May he rest in peace. Say hi to Granny for me. She makes fine moonshine!!!

West Virginia is a beautiful state. My first husband went to school in Charleston, W. Va. and I visited. I saw many of the "hollers".

Have a fabulous time. Glad you decided to treat yourself to accepting this kind invitation. We'll be waiting to hear all about it.

I wish someone would explain all the "yahtzee"ing to me.

The closer his land is to Virginia the more likely he'd been brewing up some likker. Have a good trip and find a good stout stick about five feet in length to help you up and down the back country trails.

drive safe.

Woot! Woot! Burly-biker-Braves the Wilderness! Now you have my interest piqued! Can't wait to hear the limerics/short stories/adventures! And photos! Lots of scenic photos!

Eric Alder said...

The problem with West Virginia acreage is that most of it is measured vertically! (LOL!)

Have a great time and bring me back some of that moonshine, G-Man!

Mama Zen said...

Drive safe, G-Man!

Sorry to hear about the loss. But I hope you find some enjoyment from your trip.

Now repeat after me, "No, I did NOT know hope was going to take a vacation next week." :)

Moonshine - blech. I've had it, of course, but I do not like it. But West Virginia is a beautiful place.
