Now let me tell ya .. This was a very cool thing to do... HB had to stay home ..
So I ran alone to grab it again... Being in the mine along was spooky..
As the ladies that run the mine said sure you can go in just don't go to far...

Yes I did ask if I could take my Valk in there...

Oh BTW LOL I had a dickens of a time turning TheBlack around..
I had to go in deeper to find the flat spot so I could K turn it ...

HB & I have been here a few times...
This was back in 07...

Most excellent!! Saved me a detour to Boyer on Friday. Still wanna go there and check it out tho'.

Nice!!!

According the published history of the place, they used to let cars drive through there. Gotta be an interesting place to see.

Cuz's grab

Grab.

Cuz's Uptown BBQ Pounding Mill, VA

http://www.cuzs.us/



Wanted to see the Pocahontas mine and stopped off at Cuz's on the way. To say that Cuz's is eclectic is an understatement.

New tag

This is in a town whose name is not too wide. Tag is a hotel named after the "I shall return" U.S. Army General.
