SB's map link to his new place inspired a Googlemap journey. Probably a was was, but that's no reason to not post.

The Garage (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=w+valley+road+crosby+pa&sll=41.728002,-78.391662&sspn=0.001037,0.001725&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=W+Valley+Rd,+Smethport,+McKean,+Pennsylvania +16749&ll=41.728114,-78.391662&spn=0.001029,0.001725&t=h&z=19&layer=c&cbll=41.728207,-78.391661&panoid=nb7IMfJa3tZFdoIV7RucEw&cbp=12,291.88,,0,0.24)

My dad built this garage, thirty years ago. He had someone come in and lay the foundation block and then built the rest with a few friends.

I can't see our actual house anymore, it's hidden in the pines. It might have fallen in, it was built in 1911 and was in constant need of attention even in the 1970's. There's something there on the overhead view, but I can't really tell if it's intact.

The driveway is gone, the yard has gone all to weeds, and the pines have gone from just huge to humongous.

Dad went back to visit many years ago, and claimed that behind the garage up along the treeline was a line of boxes with coonhounds, pity they're gone. :lol:

The Allegheny Hills have a certain reputation IIRC…:D

I once drove along route 15 between Corning and Williamsport on the way from Toronto towards D.C.. Beautiful country!:beer:

Probably, if we can sync up the time difference. My work hours are pretty flexible about 3 days a week, so it might not be as difficult as I first thought.

Ah that might make all the difference.

Neighbors two doors down have 4 cars - one minivan, one old car, and two pickups.

Used to be the Rifle/Brown place (the mother divorced and remarried). My best friends were Charlie (Chuckie) Brown and his sister Leslie, who was never certain whether she was a Rifle, Brown, or someone else's kid entirely. A bit sad, a bit funny.

You need Google Map to figure that out?

I wonder just how naive he is to say he "might" be. :cute:
