Hello,

Some few of you may know me but let me take this time to introduce myself. I go by the name of Kodi usually on the net. My real name is Hank or Henry, whichever you prefer. I was born in West Virginia (jokes are appreciated, I love them) but my family lived in Va. WVa was just nearby and that was the best hospital. Rural....trust me. Family moved to Maryland when I was two so steamed crabs are pretty much in my blood.

Grew up here and am still here more years later than I care to think about, even though I hate the winters. I met my wife, Patricia, 20 years ago and she's been the absolute best thing to EVER happen to me! I say that for the ladies out there to just show that men think about these things too. I did have a first marriage but I won't go into that.......bad......very bad. Happy now though!

I started cooking when the first marriage ended and found that I liked it. I'm now hooked on the Food Network and all things like that. And I have to say that while I'm no chef I am quite a good cook, ask my wife.

In addition to cooking, which relaxes me after a 9 hour day staring at a computer screen, I enjoy reading (science fiction, fantasy, horror, science fact....quantum physics facinates me), motorcycles, guns (yes I'm one of those guys....we're not all bad), comic books (I have about 5000 of them.......never quit since I was a kid), movies, beer (home brewer off and on for over 10 years) and martial arts.

My wife and I have one daughter who is out of the nest with her own offspring (grandfather status bothers me not at all) and we have one dog. She's a Norweigan Elkhound who is 17 years old. We had a Husky named Kodi who died about 4 years ago........and yes that's where I got the name. Sad time then. Oh yeah at one time my wife had over 60 frogs. Exotics from all over the world. But that's another story.

I work in the area of engineering/drafting/design so I'm somewhat of a science guy but it's offset by my motorcycle/gun interests. A "philosopher cowboy" I was once called.......I liked that.

In a nutshell that's me and that's my 2 cents.

Hi, my name is Tom Jackson, and I am a cheesesteak-a-holic.....

*pauses while the assembled crowd says 'Hi Tom' loudly and somewhat out of sync*

I......

*tears well up*

....have never had a real Philadelphia cheesteak!

*crowd issues a collective gasp*

....and until a year ago, thought a real Philly cheesesteak was made with...with...

*crowd leans in to better hear this revelation*

....steakums *groans loudly*

*moderators step forward to comfort and pull Tom off the podium, as he is too broken up to continue*

I'm Matt.
Big Stern fan for years, never took a road trip without "The Good Book". Currently live in MD, near DC, but am orininally from NJ and spent some time in NC as well. So I am familiar with good pizza, BBQ, and certain ethnic foods(DC had the best Asian and Indian around.
Play music as a hobby. I will havet o keep this short since I am (GASP!) at work.

My name is Rob. I live and eat mostly in Chicago, but I relish the chance to eat all over the place.

I am sure, like a lot of people, the Stern's books were huge revelations. You mean there is someone like me out there. I've been buying editions since high school, and the books have provided invaluable reference. I am especially glad to have been led to Pope's Cafe in the middle of nowhere TN. I was less enamored with the famous Loveless Cafe.

I've been posting on various foodie Internet sites for many years, and finally started my own "blog" a while back: http://vitalinformation.blogspot.com/

I am a chef and have been cooking professionally for many years. My husband and daughter are as obsessed with food as I am. Searching for great new things to cook and eat is our main reason to travel. We want to experience regional food as many places as we can before Applebee's makes it extinct. I can experience it with roadfood.com without leaving my house. Thank you Sterns!

Having said that, there is a restaurant, not listed on this site, that is about an hour or so northeast of Bloomington in the tiny town of Morristown, Indiana called The Kopper Kettle. Jane and Michael Stern listed it in their 1997 book "Eat Your Way Across the U.S.A." In my book that's recommendation enough to check it out. I was there in 1999 and this restaurant has got to be seen to be believed. It is one eccentric looking place, both inside and outside. Words fail to describe it adequately. Someone who has a digital camera should go up there and take pictures of it and review it here. They are closed on Mondays. They are famous for their skillet fried chicken. If you have time, I'd suggest you check it out and report your fresh culinary investigation for the rest of us.
The address and phone number: Kopper Kettle Inn, 135 East Main Street, Morristown, IN 46161; Phone: (765) 763-6767.

I seriously considered buying the house next to the Kopper Kettle when it was for sale 10 years ago but I was afraid my 5 kids would create too much noise for the diners next door.

Welcome, all new members.
I am DaveM, and my new wife (as of April 18) is HeatherB.
We are in Woburn,Ma, about 20 min outside Boston in the "route 128 belt", considered Greater Boston.
I have lived in Nashua,NH, as well as in the Boston area since my birth, and Heather has lived in Maine, Erie,PA, and Ohio.
Heather has actually driven a cab in the city of Boston years back.
She was accepted at the Culinary Institute, but never went, and now attends some classes at the Cambridge Culinary School in Cambridge,MA.
My "family" home has been in Arundel,ME (Kennebunkport), and I have travelled through most parts of Maine, NH,VT, the Maritime provinces except Newfoundland, and Montreal, Quebec.
Please email us or ask any questions regarding our area-we love to help, and to give back to those who have helped us on our trips.

Hello fellow Roadfooders, my name is Dave and it's great to be part of the scene! I am a native of New Britain, Connecticut, but now live in New York City. When I was a teenager during the Eighties, I can remember reading the Stern's restaurant reviews in the local press! During the last twenty years I haved lived in Boston, Chicago, and Miami, and have always been facinated by great local food culture. I would always be the first of my friends to discover the hidden, homestyle foods that exist right in front of our eyes. Working my whole life in the Hotel business, I've seen trends come and go. Roadfood and the funky and different will always be around! When I was very young, my family took me to Capitol Lunch in my hometown of New Britain for the first time to get one of their famous hot dogs! I guess you could say from that moment on I've been seeking out the tasty, unusual, and the offbeat paths to finding cheap and inspiring food! Well look out Manhattan, 'cause I'm on a mission to find out "eats on the street" and everything else that comes in my way! Hey, if you ever come here folks, I'm the guy who dines on top of a newsbox on the corner, chowing down on the best Middle Eastern food that five bucks can buy at three in the morning! You can catch me walking down the street in the East Village with a huge "slice" on a paper plate in my hand, dodging yellow cabs and alternatively taking bites. Well, it's nice meeting all you fellow Roadfooder and thanks for keeping it real.

Good morning! I've been reading the Sterns work for years-have always gotten a good chuckle out of them!I've been reading the forums for the last few days-REALLY rainy here outside of Chicago-some real pistols on this site! I've cooked professionally for over 25 years-I'm "slumming" right now-cooking for a private preschool,but always enjoy reading cookbooks and collecting menus-my passion!I'd love to know if there are any many threads or menu website that you roadfooders know about-be thrilled to hear about them!

Hi ~ I am Amy, from Weston Vermont. Although I now work at in an office, I grew up in a restaurant family (my brother and father run 3 in Connecticut)and my sisters CA and Maggie each have one in Massachusetts (actually CA's is opening in a couple of weeks in Gill...a hamburger stand! with picnic tables outside, under an awning! ~ I will provide more details to those interested!). Somehow, I escaped the food service vortex (note the latent resentment due to never being allowed in the kitchen at Thanksgiving, while all the professionals were at work)...but I am actually a very good home cook. And I LOVE Roadfood of any type. It all started in high school, when CA and I decided the best food on earth was diner food. There were some very good diners near where we grew up...the Windmills (New Milford and Danbury), the Blue Colony in Newtown. I think nothing of driving almost a whole day to get to a snack shack that I like. I really enjoy this website!

Hey yall,

I went with my friend Victoria on a trip across the US in 1993. We took the Roadfood book and went out of our way to stick to the Roadfood program. It was fabulous. I've been a fan ever since and just found this forum. As a therpist I don't want to say I've ever lurked anywhere. Might be bad for business. Unless you count that time when the Allman Brothers were playing... Oops I'm being tangential!

I now live in Mt Pleasant SC between Charleston and Sullivan's Island. I am NC born and bred so don't try to convince me anyway but my way is the right way, LOL!
I'm happy to meet you all!

Sue Shankle (MSW)

Thx for the info. I live in Natchitoches, so will look for the places. Don't know Red's Ribs. I think Mama's has the best catfish I've run across (and I'm not a catfish fan); and believe it or not, the ribs at Brookshire's on Keyser are the best I've had outside of West Tennessee!

Hello all! Well, I just spent about 5 hours reading posts, and this place is so neat! I live in southern Illinois, and have most of my life. I had a brief stint (6 yrs) in central Illinois and then came back here. I work in law enforcement, am married and have 2 little boys. 2 and 6 (well almost anyways). We're taking our first family road trip in less than 2 weeks, which is how I ended up here. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and your eating habits

RE: NEW POSTERS! Introduce yourselves! - Wed, 06/2/04 5:20 AM
I'm not exactly new anymore, but I've somehow managed to miss this thread in the past few months. Better late than never. My name is Bill (my Roadfood name comes from a botched pronunciation of "William" by one of my Wiedemann-inspired college buddies,) and I've been a Northern Kentucky resident for all of my 41+ years. I consider myself an expert on Cincinnati chili due to my 40+ years of gastric daredevilry in that particular discipline. (Okay, so I'm not an expert, but I've eaten a lot of local chili in a lot of different ways at a lot of different hours, so that's got to be worth something.) I enjoy traveling and finding little out of the way places with oddball menu items or different takes on classic tastes. I'm partial to beaches, but I've been known to spend a vacation day on a two lane road with nothing but my camera, sunglasses and XM radio. (Geez, I get dressed first. Don't be gross.) I have the requisite wife and two kids, have been a baseball, basketball and soccer coach in the recent past and even spent time as a Brownie troop co-leader. (An experience I encourage everyone to avoid in this lifetime.) Other areas of gastric interest include burgers, pizza, steak, seafood, root beer, micro brews, barbecue, dusty candy that's spent quality time on the floor and anything I can throw on the grill.

Hi all!

I've been lurking for a while, but you all seem so nice and I've been wanting to put my two cents into a lot of these threads, so I think it's time to jump in!

I'm a native Pittsburgher, home of putting fries on everything! I seriously never realized this was weird until my boyfriend from California pointed out that this trend is pretty much exclusive to the 'Burgh. Go figure! I LOOOOOOOOVE food, and I'll try anything. Except that duck egg with the fetus inside thing they eat in the Philippines. Organ meats and brains kinda freak me out. I don't really like pork, and those sandwiches they have at gas stations are just wrong. Dense fishes are pretty gross...OK, maybe I won't try anything. But I'm pretty open.

I love cooking and baking. Sometimes. I love the feeling of finding a good recipe, cooking it up and thinking, "Wow! I made this and it's really good!" However, the time put into making an involved dish can be frustrating, and I don't so much like doing the dishes after (no dishwasher here) or cleaning up the inevitable mess in the kitchen. It's really worth it to have your own homemade lasagna, quiche, tiramisu, shortbread cookies, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, etc. I wish I had the capacity to create my own dishes. The most I'll do is put different stuff in my scrambled eggs. The best I've done is a good chunky salsa with colby jack cheese topped with fresh chopped cilantro, Tabasco sauce and sour cream. Make it into a breakfast burrito and it's divine! My other creation is shrimp with malt vinegar (uh, not in eggs though). Why has no one tapped into this yet?

Anyhoo, I look forward to chatting with all of you! I'm still a young'in (I'll be 25 in a month and a half) so I'm hoping to learn a bit here.I haven't travelled as much as I'd like, but I'll be picking your brains before my next road trip! Thanks everyone for creating such a friendly and entertaining corner of the net!

Not to worry: A few guns (I prefer to call them "instruments of individualized destruction"), a couple of motorcycles (not now, regrettably), a tattoo, an earring, a taste for fantasy & SF, a bootlegging misunderstanding, an unfortunate predilection for ethnic jokes at anybody's expense including my own. . . . Oh, yes: and I just retired after 25 years as a priest. Recently joined ACLU and am about to rejoin Mensa and join the NRA just to keep conventionalists confused!

No, we're not all bad, we're all individuals.

Hi ya'll,

Let this be my first introductory post, on topic and filled with glee at such a great website. I'm an almost 40 year old who spent a few weeks every summer hanging around my aunt Ermie's cafe in Ripley, Mississippi handing out cokes and eating her variant of the slug burger. The restaurant's still there and it's open sporadically since she's in her 70's. It's called Crum's Cafe and if you visit tell her Philip Wallace sent you. Some of my other aunt's sometimes tend the place too. I reside in Smithville, TN, but I do go on the road quite often for business so this forum is a godsend.
The posts here are superlative. I especially love the nostalgic ones.
I was also overjoyed to find the food musings of Ort at this site. I've been a fan of Mr. Carlton since the mid-80's when I used to read his column in Tasty World (not about food, but an Athens music rag).
Wally is an old nickname, and of course the Bangs bit is a tribute to Lester Bangs. I'll answer to Philip or Wally.

Hi, everyone, I'm DP. I'm originally from Mississippi (grew up a few blocks from The Dinner Bell) but have been living in St. Louis for 20 years now. I've had the Roadfood books for years and have given quite a few as presents. I've been trolling the site for a long time and checking out the reviews. I travel a bit for work and always scope out my destinations. My favorite find was the late Ruth and Jimmy's in Abbeville and my current favorite find is DaKine's in San Diego. I've only started posting lately (as if you couldn't tell). I have some new recommendations for the Stern's when they come through St. Louis, namely Iron Barley, La Tropicana, and Billie's Fine Foods.

Hi gang! I'm Joan, and I've been a disciple of the Sterns' for about 20 years. Way back when, I was a music teacher in upstate NH, and I worked at Polly's Pancake Parlor in the summer for extra money. The 'Goodfood' book was being sold in the gift shop, and I bought one, and have since tried many of the recommendations. It's always fun to go to a new town, and eat at one of the listed restaurants, and have a local person be surprised that I knew about the place.

I live in Columbia, MD, home of 80000000000 chain restaurants, and they are ALL crowded. The joke here is that no one ever eats at home!

I am currently a full time student (and wife, and mother). Should be getting my PharmD in just under two years. Until that time, there isn't a lot of time to get out to fun places. I DO occasionally go to Lexington Market, since it's right up the street from the pharmacy school.

Nice to "meet" you all -- let me know if there is another crabcake gathering in this area!

I feel like I'm visiting AA for the first time, or in this case FA. "Hi, my name is Patty, I've been a foodaholic for 44 years".

I live in Southern California by way of Chicago. My birthday is this coming Monday, June 28, and I'm planning on a Road Trip to Windy C's Chicago Hot Dogs in Upland, CA this weekend to celebrate. You see, as a Chicago ex-patriot I have to search out staple foods like Chicago Dogs, Italian Beef sandwiches, GOOD pizza, and BBQ'd ribs. All those things that I took for granted living in Chi-town have now become an adventure to find, but that's the fun part!

Sorry I missed the Rancho Cucamonga 1st (Annual?) Road Trip Food-a-thon. It would have been fun to share the comraderey of a meal shared with foodies.

Thanks for giving me something to do when I come home from work that isn't more work. It's such a pleasure to take a break and see what's on everyone's mind and (hopefully) get a few tips on some local Road Trip opportunties.

Hi group -

I'm from Milford CT, and I'm a dog-aholic living deep in the middle of Hummel's country. I can even walk there from my office in New Haven.

Spent the first 28 years of my life on the East Side of Bridgeport, the next 8 in Stratford, and I've been in Milford for the last 10 years.

I've been around the site for a couple of months, mostly in the hot dog site.

Always enjoyed dogs growing up, but saw the Hot Dog show on PBS a couple of years ago, and they started to become more of a staple in the diet

From reading posts in the dog forum, I realized that the only thing I really know about hot dogs is how to eat them.

I was never concerned about the nuances of the brands and such.

But now, I'm becoming more conscious of all aspects of the dog - the type of meat, the type of roll, how they're prepared and the condiments.

I'm always willing to explore any and all dog places in my travels, and would love to sample every dog and burger place in Connecticut - purely for research purposes, of course.

Hi everybody, I'm Nancy. I'm very new to the site, but a longtime Sterns fan. I have made several road trips with "Eat Your Way" in the backseat and for a while I was even organized enough to make notes and insert snaps of the places I visited. Now I just wipe my chin and keep driving.

I live in central SC (hello there scbuzz and dixiebrave), work in college administration. I visit the Lowcountry real often, as well as the NC Triangle area, the entire length of eastern Minnesota (the in-laws), LA (my mother's territory), and less often, the Seattle area (grandparentville). I'll be adding the Bloomington IN environs to the list starting in the fall because my son will be making me a Hoosier Mama.

I managed to convince a Minnesotan to come live with me and be my love over a plate of FGTs at Jestine's Kitchen in Charleston, so it will always have a warm spot in my heart.

Sue I may just take you up on that; is it on the Vickery's side of the creek?

Buzz, I guess we SCers get spoiled by all the fairly decent local chains around here, like Rush's and Zesto's and (although it shows its age from time to time) Lizard's Thicket.

I've lived in Knoxville for 11 years but originally from Cincinnati area so I guess I'm still a "Damn Yankee". I discovered roadfood site a couple weeks ago and have enjoyed it so much and have learned a lot already. I hope I can contribute also.
I travel a lot so I get to sample a lot of places and dfifferent kinds of foods, and I love to cook as well so I hope I can add some ideas as well as get some new ones.

What a novel idea, introducing myself. D'oh! Pardon my ignorance, I'm from the South

Anyhow, I'm David & I live in North Louisiana (Ruston, home of Louisiana Tech University). I've lived in Mississippi, and Hawai'i (where I was born) , and have traveled the right side of the continental states pretty extensively. I believe that fried chicken is the greatest food ever, followed closely by dry ribs from the Rendezvous.

So, Aloha & Howdy!

Welcome, Carlton & cleveland66. You'll enjoy it here: it seems to be more of a community than other sites I've heard about. Cleveland, if you're ever down Natchitoches way, give me a buzz!

I live now in rural Calhoun County, southern Michigan (near Battle Creek, home of Kellogg's, Post and Purina cereals), after forty-five years in south east Los Angeles County of Califoria. I check into this site daily, mostly hoping to learn of dives that serve great burgers, fries, onion rings, etc. Looking forward to my first Superdawg and Chicago-style pizza. Have been learning lots of late about bbq, and plan on a road trip soon to sample some different varieties. If you need advice about great breakfasts and/or burgers in LaLa Land, I'm your man.

I grew up in Silver Spring, MD and spent a lot of time on weekends boating and fishing on the Chesapeake through my teens. Then spent 4 years in school in Baltimore and 4 more in Durham, NC and a couple more in Gainesville, FL. Then I went into the Navy as a medical officer and spent 20 years during which I lived in Florida, California, Japan, New Zealand, and Antarctica and visited Korea, Thailand, Australia, the Phillipines, and most of Europe. The last 10 years of my Navy career were spent in the San Francisco Bay Area and I retired here. I've now been here 22 years but recently I began spending winters (which are rainy and dreery in northern CA) in Green Valley in southern Arizona (30 miles from the border, 20 miles south of Tucson).

Although cooking is a life-long hobby, my tastes in food are pretty basic and the usual stuff discussed as "roadfood" is just the kind of thing that makes me drool.

Hi!
I live in Wisconsin and have been using the Roadfood and Goodfood books since the early 80's when I picked them up at Sangamon State University in Springfield, Il. We have been fortunate to try lots of the places mentioned in them. We are 20 years away from retirement, but enjoy travel whenever we can. Good to meet you all!

Hi Everyone,

I'm Robert, turned 42 this month, happily single, living in Chipley,
FL., 50 miles north of Panama City Beach (home to Pineapple Willy's
"Jack Daniel's BBQ Ribs"). I found the site in USA TODAY a few weeks
ago.
My three favorite Roadfood memories are:
1. Celebrating a birthday on the road to Chicago with lunch
at Ponderosa in Lebanon, IN (1993)
2. Making a stop with my college friends at Skeeters Big
Biscuits in Gainesville, FL (love that biscuit and gravy!)
(1983)
3. Celebrating my mom's birthday (the three of us heading to
Detroit/Canada on vacation) at Mark Pi's China Gourmet in
Franklin, OH (1995)

Plus, I cook a mean corn souffle/casserole...
Glad to be here!!

Robert

I've taken AMTRAK from New Orleans to Jacksonville any number of times and I always remember thinking as we stopped in Chipley, "I bet there's good eating here!" Closest I ever came was a month I spent in Mayo, FL. Can't remember the name of the place, but there was a good "down home" restaurant there.

BT: Well, in Chipley, we have a few "down-home" places, such as
the Chuck Wagon House (on Fridays for their lunch buffet of $6.95,
you can get three whole fried catfish with all the fixings: hush
puppies, greens, cheese grits, baked beans, butterbeans, and a
slice of pie (lots to choose from!);
Gary's Flamin' Grill serves up its 12oz. "Bubba Burger" (not bad!);
Saldana's is a new place that is trying to cater to the Sunday lunch
crowd. Back in the 70's, the Hardy House was the place to go for
the catfish, Granny's Country Kitchen at the top of the hill served
the noontime lunch crowd, and yes, Chipley was even the home base
of "Big Sam's Fried Chicken",("It's as good as Mom's!"), it's
founder a FL congressman who passed away a year ago (they had
about 10 outlets).
If you really want good seafood, Panama City has a place called
the "House of Seafood" which is located at the foot of North Bay:
small, and sometimes a wait, but well worth it! Alas, one of my
favorite places called Miller's closed this year: family-run, also
small and packed, and an excellent, inexpensive lunch seafood
platter, but the father also passed away and the family decided
to close in the name of progress as the hwy. between here and
PC is getting four-laned.
BT, there's a lot more: Apalachicola?

Hi everyone!

I guess Lone Star's right, it's time to introduce myself. I've been a fan of the Sterns for a while, and have reading everyone's posts for about a year. I'm Cheryl, currently residing in Beaufort, SC (so hey to Nancy and Sue in Mt. Pleasant). I'm a writer, married, and have an 8-year-old daughter, also a dedicated Roadfooder. So Ralph Isbill, please don't give up on the younger generation, not all of them are fast food junkies. I enjoy all the conversations and discussions here!

Sushi Girl, when was the last time you were back in Chipley?
The traffic has gotten worse because of all the flow between
downtown and everyone heading out to eat near Wal-Mart (alas,
there are only two places that can be considered "roadfood":
Chuck Wagon House and Gary's Flamin' Grill; well, maybe throw
in Cancun Mexican Restaurant). And as mentioned in another post,
thinking of four-laning 77 from here to Panama City...

BTW, sorry to hear about your kitty...we had some memorable
stories about our cats over the years....

RMC,
If my memory serves me right, Chipley is sort-of in the panhandle of Florida and the seat of Washington County.
I'm curious: is your county still dry? Years ago, there were seven dry counties left in Florida: Washington, Lafayette (Mayo), Santa Rosa (Milton), Madison (Madison), Suwanee (Live Oak), Liberty (Bristol), and Hardee (Wauchula).
I know that Santa Rosa recently legalized sales of liquor and wine at the beach areas, but I've not kept up with any other changes. My family is from Hardee County where you have a contingent of hard-line zealots who won't, for example, buy gasoline at a station that sells beer nor groceries in a store with a beer license; they have kept the county dry since 1947. (It's bound to change sooner or later, but it hasn't yet - that I know of.)
This is one of those trivial questions that get asked after two or three pints at my favorite brewpub (I hang out with some amazing characters, obviously, to bandy such trivia as that around). I just thought you might update me if you have time and inclination. Besides, if anyone wants to visit, and wants wine with their meal, they might like to know as well.
By the way, welcome to our midst. I've been by Chipley on I-10, even listened to your 1240 AM radio station for a few yerbly miles one Springtime evening around 9:30 - 9:45.
Best, Ort. Carlton in Athens, Georgia.

Hi ya'll,

Let this be my first introductory post, on topic and filled with glee at such a great website. I'm an almost 40 year old who spent a few weeks every summer hanging around my aunt Ermie's cafe in Ripley, Mississippi handing out cokes and eating her variant of the slug burger. The restaurant's still there and it's open sporadically since she's in her 70's. It's called Crum's Cafe and if you visit tell her Philip Wallace sent you. Some of my other aunt's sometimes tend the place too. I reside in Smithville, TN, but I do go on the road quite often for business so this forum is a godsend.
The posts here are superlative. I especially love the nostalgic ones.
I was also overjoyed to find the food musings of Ort at this site. I've been a fan of Mr. Carlton since the mid-80's when I used to read his column in Tasty World (not about food, but an Athens music rag).
Wally is an old nickname, and of course the Bangs bit is a tribute to Lester Bangs. I'll answer to Philip or Wally.


Wally,
You totally made my day! How many issues of Tasty World do you still have? I think there were either eleven or twelve; it is my aim to get the entire set microfilmed for (pre-?)posterity. I think I have them all.
Nowadays I write for Flagpole Magazine here in Athens. I never left. (Actualy, I did, but I came back. The Scylla-and-Charybdis thing, I guess.) You can find sporadic examples of my work (?) at our website, www.flagpole.com.
Someday I hope to motor out to Mississippi to enjoy the benefits of slugburger heaven, in and around Ripley (where William Faulkner was born, if I remember correctly), Corinth, Iuka, and environs.
Again, thank you for your kind comment about my writing. I just turned in a column on strong beers (Georgia has raised its allowable-alcohol level from 6% to 14% as of July 1, and those new products are starting to trickle in), so it'll be the next one up, we can suppose.
Again, again, thanks.
Best, Ort. Carlton in Lovely Athens, Georgia.

Ort,

Nice to meet you too and your many exploits!! Yep, we're still a
dry county - we're even lucky to have the Wal-Mart for ten years
even though some of the old-timers wanted to keep that image of
having the city limits end at the curve next to the funeral home -
next stop, Wausau, which is having Possum Day this Saturday!
I-10 is the "dividing line" for Sunday beer sales: north of that
is the Chipley city limits; south of that is an Exprezzit store
which proclaims "We Sell Beer on Sundays" - and guess where it's
across from: Blue Lake Baptist Church.
Ort, if you want to get wine or anything harder than that here,
you have to go up 77 past the Jackson County line: there is a
package store 2 miles south of Graceville, or sometimes head 20
miles east to Marianna. The only restaurant here that serves beer
is Pizza Hut.
Our local radio station, 1240-WBGC is still plugging away, though
sometimes it's hard to know what station they are: on Sunday's, it's
mostly gospel, the other times, it could be past hits, and the most
recognized voice, Harvey Ethridge, passed away a few years ago. I
say that because the morning program he had for years was always
the same: you knew whose ad was when, and how the program went.
But finally, it's not a bad place to be: when I graduated in 80',
some of my mates decided to test their luck raising a family in a
big city: one was in Atlanta, but decided to come back and raise
his kids in a less-hectic environment.
Nice to meet you again, Ort: if you're down this way, look me up
for a lunch buffet at Chuck Wagon or some big burgers at Gary's -
and everyone here is slowly drawing their lines in the sand for
about a month from now: FSU-Miami, and those Gators still playing
in the shadow of Spurrier....

later, Robert

I am also trying to pass on the roadfood habit to my 3 and 4 year old kids. I was taught by my Dad and Grandfather, who knew every hole in the wall eatery in NY City and surrounding areas.

Hey Rmcielwain,

I thought I knew the last people to live in Chipley, FL! My husband is from down around Marianna, and spent a lot of time in Chipley as a teenager. It doesn't sound like that area's changed much since I was last there about 12 years ago. We enjoy going to Apalach (as the natives call Apalachicola, why I don't know), but try to stay away from PCB. As for Tallahassee, I'll skip the traffic anyday.

Alfredo,

Well, take a Wal-Mart SC which is nearly 10 years old, add a few
fast-food chains and motels, and what do you get: TRAFFIC par
excellence!!
Also throw in the traffic from the West Point Stevens plant
when they all finish, put them on the two-lane roads: same result.
Yes, building boom: new schools, hospital expansion, possible
4-laning of 77 from PC to AL; I-10 connector??
Marianna has gravitated to the area around I-10/71 exit because
they opened a Wal-Mart SC in 2001, leaving shells of what was
K-Mart and their old building (now Sallie Mae) in the dust.
It's 11:10, so I may be heading out to lunch, maybe taking about
10 minutes for me to cross 77 since the downtown lunch crowd is
about to have their usual procession to the south...
And speaking of PC Beach, sad news: it's falling prey to condos -
good-bye Miracle Strip Amusement Park after Labour Day; same to the
long-time dining bastion The Breakers; plus road construction on
the heels of opening the new Hathaway Bridge...
Change? Maybe a little....

Went to PBC had a great time considering it was during one of the worst hurricanes we've had in some time. Brother-in-law has a condo right down the street from Quarterdeck couldn't tell you about the food as we had bought shrimp off the docks earlier on a particular day and chose Quarterdeck strictly for alcohol and walking distance. Went to one AUCEB(stared with an "M", Mariner mabye?) for seafood that wasn't all that great and was told for food to go to Hammerhead Fred's, unfortunatly that was the day we were headed back to G'ville. Caught the comment about the Gator's up there in posts. We'll be alright as long as we have some players!

Rusty,

Which hurricane did you go through? Back in 1975, Eloise nearly
wiped the beach clean, and in 1995, Opal came in during the night
and left fast, but not before leaving a calling card!
I think the AYCEB is Mariner Seafood Buffet, still in business.
My former pastor (R.I.P.) was a Florida grad - he would never be
satisfied unless he left a parting shot for me - Seminole Fan
(and I didn't go to FSU; went to U. West Florida in Pensacola
where the only sport we had was NAIA baseball...)!
