    Nice Veterans' Memorial - stop for a visit when you're in town.

    I didn't try the water out of the Salt Sulphur well, even though it was 101* temps. :eek1

    This courthouse is located in the city where Gen Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was born.

    Bonus points for the Stonewall Jackson statue located just to the left of the front steps. (See next photos)

    Seriously, though, I took several court house photos on my loop, but I thought I'd move it north to see if it gets any activity. Giving it a break from the fast pace it's had the past few months. :lol3

    Well, I don't have a thermometer picture for you...but I can PROMISE you it was NOT 101 deg out tonight when I went tagging! It's been a long time since this thread has seen any action, but it did have an epic Buff/Duck tag team so I had to bring it back from the dead! Anyhow, incase you haven't figured it our, it's the Harrison County courthouse in Clarksburg WV.

    TAG!

    Crap! Wish I'd have known I'd have stopped bye! I sat at Hardees and warmed my butt there for a few and sipped a coke. I slogged clear up to Bruceton Mills and back last night. Felt good to get out and stretch the beemers legs. Haven't figured my new courthouse location though. I'm gonna try not to do my usual pleastants or tyler county areas. I'm gonna try to pick another. There's two I have in mind, we'll see how the post-christmas weather and time frame shape up. Although based off last nights ride, it would just have to not snow alot and I'll ride :lol3
    Also even if I did resurect it for a day, it did manage to give me a deuce tag lastnight. Far from the trifecta, but not to shabby for a dreary winters night.

    PS: I did think of how bad TOR misses you last night by the way. I was thinking "a married guy with kids isn't meant to be the pseudo-pnoman" There never will be another pnoman or any other tagger like you so we gotta get you back on wheels some day!

    Thanks. You're too kind. Maybe someday, but probably not too soon. :cry

    Maybe I'll start a WV Hiking Tag-O-Rama. :lol3

    In the meantime, enjoy your riding!

    Hiking TOR sounds fun! I used to backpack more than I do now. Back before kids and marriage. Now the farthest I go to pitch a tent is the front yard with the kids :lol3 I'll enjoy my riding very much, thanks :D I usually ride with my dad so it's a good father-son sport for us. Today wouldn't be a half bad day to place a new tag, but I'd rather spend it with the kiddos.

    New Tag!

    This court house can be found in the county seat, which was settled by William Beauchamp in 1796. It was known as "Beauchamp's Mills" until 1817 when the name of the town was changed to that of William Beuchamp's wife. It is also the ONLY incorporated town in this county. Let me know if you need more clues (so I can smack you):deal

    Nice choice there, bholmes. This town was also in the national spotlight about 8 years ago. :D

    Yes sir! Home of a certain POW. I am pretty fond of the tag. It's a nice area and the courthouse is pretty I think.
