Fredericksburg is a pretty neat little city, I go there on weekends to Central Park. We usually go to Bailey's Grill and Pub, they have some good food, not to mention I just like the bar. Never really went to any of the historical sites though, are they any good?




if you aren't a civil war buff, there is nothing to do in fredericksburg except eat and get pregnant....some of the HS's there have the highest in the state and far beyond.....my parents live there


my adopted hometown, BLACKSBURG, VA

as made famous last spring by CNN, Fox news, CNBC, etc and basically everyone else with a camera

also it seems to have been home to one of the best engineering schools in the country...for some 136 odd years

It was in the news a few years ago. Shanksville was where the fourth plane crashed on 9/11.

The next summer, we had the "9 for 9" frenzy when nine miners got trapped underground and subsequently rescued.

Somerset, PA and the surrounding area is notable for a lot of colonial history. The Whiskey Rebellion happened here, and George Washington passed through here as a soldier in the French & Indian War.
My junior and senior year I played in the Windber Rotary basketball tournament. My coach is originally from Windber. My girlfriend's aunt, uncle, and cousins live in Somerset.If you're ever up for a search, check the memorial wall for a "Lakeview Basketball" beanie. I put it on there last year when we visited.


Cool, next time I'm up there, I'll search for it...pics if I find it.

I forget which boat company, but its the boat that is small and fast.  Anyways, they originated in my town, Marysville Michigan, and were originally built for running alcohol from Canada to Michigan.

Not true, you guys have hot chicks that work at the drive-through coffee stand in that one shopping area. Have no idea what it's called. My buddy was in charge of your Maple Valley Police Explorer thing even in to his 20's.

Sammamish Washington/Seattl. Ted Bundy abducted two girls from the State Park on Lake Sammamish that I hung out at when I was younger. The girl who won that TV Show The Swan was from Sammamish. That's about all that I can think of really for Sammamish.

As for seattle. Well, tons of crap. Obviously Sleepless in Seattle was filmed here. Again, Ted Bundy was around as his first wave of killings were in Washington. He attended the same University as I, although it was called University of Puget Sound at the time. Space Needle is popular, Pike Place Market is widely visited. The boat The Northwestern from Deadliest Catch calls Seattle's port home. WAYY to much stuff for me to list.

I love that whole state.  Did you guys happen to hear about the stuff going on in Skykomish where they have to dig up all the contaminated dirt from when trains used to refuel there?  Well my uncles company was hired to move all of the buildings/houses out of the way.  Anyways, its an absolutely beautiful state, I'd like to live there.
