GOOGLE MAP PAGE OF X-DAY LOCI OF INTEREST
From Stang, Wei, Pisces, Suds, Rev. Nigel and Rev Joy after a full late-May survey of the entire area:
Forget Pomeroy, Ohio. Pretend it doesn't even exist. It's drab and crappy, and in terms of curvy bad roads, too far from Wisteria. Center your trip on ATHENS, OHIO, and use Wisteria's written directions from Athens to the campground. (A GPS will get you there, but not as quickly in the long run, as it may take you down a freakishly curvy state road.) Athens is a very nice and, pardon the expression, "hip" college town with a plethora of good but cheap motels, excellent bars and restaurants, and quirky music and clothing shops. Best of all, a gigantic Kroger grocery (with state liquor store), a Super-8 Motel and a vast WalMart are on the side of town closest to Wisteria, maybe 20 minutes from the campground if you are a slow and careful driver. The bars, stores, restaurants and hang-outs of Athens would make for a great weekend trip just by themselves. FORGET POMEROY. It's nothing but a convenient mailing address for Wisteria.
From Pater Nostril:
"Ravenswood, WV, which is very close to Wisteria (10 minutes or so) is a good place for stores and there are a few restaurants too. Ripley, WV, a bit farther (located on I77), is also a close destination for shopping & eating needs.
Rev Felix Automaton made the Google Map for X-Day at Wisteria with push-pins for Wisteria, nearby stores, gas, beer, liquor, whatnot, as well as some roadside weirdness on the way.
