    Budget Friendly Lodging at Snowshoe

    For a budget-friendly, but still great stay at Snowshoe, consider the Inn at Snowshoe at the base of the mountain about 6 miles away from the main skiing area. There are shuttles that run between the Inn and The Village/Silver Creek at the top of the mountain, so staying at the bottom isn't a problem. In fact, it's kind of nice to not have to drive up the mountain in poor weather - let the experienced shuttle drivers handle that. And they keep to the schedule quite well so no long waits if you know the schedule. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful and the Inn has most amenities - there is a restaurant, bar, and ski shop. The WiFi in the hotel, however, is rather poor. No reception in the rooms, so you have to go to the lobby to get signal. Also, note that there is pretty much no cell phone reception (AT&T supposedly has some reception although its unreliable) anywhere, since all of Pocahontas County is a federal quiet zone due to the nearby National Radio Astronomy Observatory. Complimentary breakfast buffet was quite good and there was a good selection of warm and cold food available. But most importantly, there's also a pool and two hot tubs - great after a chilly day of skiing to relax and warm up. The hot tubs are directly adjacent to the pool, so if you get overheated, you can jump right in the pool, cool off for a bit, then get back in the hot tub to warm back up, all without ever getting out of the water. All of this for quite a bit less than what it costs to stay at the top of the mountain. We plan to come back and stay here again. My only complaint is that there was no refrigerator or safe in the room so its hard to save money on food by bringing your own.

    ... which makes for a 90 mile loop; and possibly, a revival of some freight service. In addition, they have a Heisler -- another kind of gear driven loco. It's currently in pieces and the husk looks nearly derelict but is probably NOT beyond hope, as the Cass has thriving restoration/rebuilding shops. -- The D&G also supposedly hope to add some 4-6-0 Baldwins for use on much of the (hypothetically) restored-loop, though the grade and the ...

    ... it's the largest one on Earth. You can look it up on the internet. It's the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. 485 feet tall and 110 meters in diameter. And the exhibits in their exhibit hall inside were also really interesting.

    Back in Durbin, we noticed a door open at the firehouse, so Walt went in and struck up a conversation with the firefighter/EMT who was there. We chatted and ...

    ... is only sort of marginally cold enough, and I think tomorrow it will be time for a meal in a restaurant.

    so much for my complaints. Today we drove from Chambersburg, PA, to Durbin, West Virginia. The last 50 or 60 miles were beautiful, and would have been even nicer if it hadn't been too cloudy to see what must have been spectacular views from 3700 fee high. The campground we're in Is adjacent to the tracks and station of ...
