    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.

  19. 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! :rolleyes: o_O I call Harrisonburg home.

    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.
