Wow, this is waking up a dead thread!

Just a touch south of Winchester
I'm from Grayson County (Mouth of Wilson) but moved west decades ago. Still have a sister and three nieces in Greenville, Staunton, Fishersville, Stuarts Draft area (niece and husband own Dominion Outdoors in Fishersville). Virginia will always be "home."
Come try a ham biscuit at the Smithfield Inn... you can get them a dozen at a time if you want!
You have a decent drive to work.
I'm in beautiful downtown Berryville, pronounced Buravil Like you're a farmer with a mouth full of tobacco, 'I'ma goin to Buravil, get some plantin seed'. Buravil.
........Now I'm hungry!...Nothing in this world is better than a good country ham biscuit.
sort of like Staunton but pronounced different.
...................well with a few exceptions, perhaps. Happy Holidays to my Virginia pals. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. Sorry for the interruption.
Always loved FronRoll (Front Royal)
Fairfax, northern Virginia. 25 miles west of the "swamp".
I was going to say , you have to wear hipwaders in that area .
Grew up in Amherst County, ended up living in Lynchburg after I got done with the Navy, and moved to Charleston South Carolina when jobs dried up in the 'Burg around 1995. Yep, Virginia is my home, but I won't go back again.
Very good observation! The "U" is silent in Staunton. You can always tell someone not from the area when they pronounce it Stau-u-nton! I call Harrisonburg home.
Byoona Vista. Tourists call it Bwayna Vista.
I'm from Stanley, just south of the Loooo ray Caverns. lol
My granddad's name was Stanley, and my grandmaws name was Virginia. But they didn't live in Stanley Virginia. I do have a good friend who lives there tho. My wife's name's wasn't Ida, and she wasn't in a flood eth'er .
UVA - Charle-ville. Had a Prof. w/a Hemi Roadrunner. Great place, winter visited on a Wednesday. Returned to the Frozen Nawth.
Always Maryland here. But did live a summer in Quicksburg outside of Mt. Jackson. A school buddy of mine had grandparents there. We spent the summer working on his dad's '57 Belair. Ride thru there on the way to my brothers in S.C. And always stop at Rt.11 potato chips. Really dig that 81-77 area.
Just a little further west than @Just Gary, in Sterling.
I thought Front Royal was called Froyal !
Who brought this thread back from the dead???? I am west of Front Royal, just short of Geo. Wash. Natl. Forest. Very north end of the Valley.
I did. My wife was born in Flint Hill

Portsmith not Portsmouth, does that make sense?!
............That's funny 'cause the guy who originally started the thread hasn't been back on here in 10 years!
