I'd love to see interior shots.
That second one is pretty cool, I must say.

I also wish we had pictures of the buildings 70 years ago, with the people who owned them. I love looking at the way people lived in the early 20th century.

No interior shots, unfortunately. We had already gotten shot at once that day, that was enough excitement for us. -:)

It is buck season in WV for another week or two, if you're not wearing the minimum 200 sq in of blaze orange it can be tough to tell the difference from a distance. Solution? Wear your orange and stay away from private property and public property legal for hunting.

I wondered if it might be; it's deer season in MN and WI as well. I'm so glad I don't live out in the country, I'd be scared to death for myself and my dogs. When we lived in Kansas, I knew a lot of people who'd put blaze orange blankets on their horses or paint "HORSE" on their sides in orange to keep hunters from shooting them, especially if the pastures bordered on wooded areas.

Just for amusement, I'd like it if they painted something like "CAT" on the side of the horses.

I was driving my Prius down an abandoned railroad grade in search of the train orders office in Jerome, WV that wasn't torn down after the railroad was abandoned. We were almost there when we realized it was someone's driveway and started turning around. Apparently whoever lives there who doesn't like them thar fancy 'lectric vehicles. -:)

I just want to say, if you're in WV more it IS buck season. If you're out in the bush PLEASE make sure you're wearing a minimum of 200 sq inches of blaze orange! This is for your safety.

Also, make sure you don't venture onto private property where there are no restrictions on hunting because, again, it is buck season. We have a wonderful abandoned house on one of our properties but would not want an explorer to get shot accidentally this time of year!
