« on: July 03, 2021, 10:03:53 AM »

Celebrate the Fourth on the third with a fifth - by poppin' open a keg or three and enjoying 100 Scholaring photos from April's trip to New River Gorge National Park!

You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll be back for more (as Ratt would say)!

Top-notch commentary and an interesting deep dive! (and a cool domain name -- I know people are going to offer you lots of money for it, but I hope you keep it)

The boxer Tunney from the Tunney-Hunsaker bridge -- I'm wondering why a bridge in WV would be named after a Canadian boxer, that being Frank Tunney. His nephew Jack Tunney would go on to be "President" of the WWF back in the days when us kids had no idea that the announcer Vince McMahon owned the WWF. We thought Jack Tunney was running the show. His character always came across as square and by-the-book, seemingly depressed and disappointed by all the "chaos" in wrestling.

The "balance beam" roads are my favorite! It's enough to keep the dust away from houses (and cars or pedestrians) and if you need to give way to allow a passing car to get by, you just pull off onto the gravel shoulders and proceed generally at speed.

They gave this treatment to the county road that parallels the turnpike between the Pax and Mossy interchanges, probably because of all the shunpikers using that road to avoid the toll booth.
