    As a former resident of Parkersburg, West Virginia, I was wondering if there were any other members here from WV.
    If so how's business up there? Me and my wife thought about moving back but the last time I lived there in 1993 good jobs were hard to come by. I would like to continue in the lawn business but not sure how well it would go.

    I went to member list, advanced search, then in the location field I typed in West Virginia. I also tried W. Virginia, and W. Va

    I was only able to find 6 members, and none of them had more than 3 posts each.

    Might be others out there, but that's all I could find.

    I did the same search and found 15 using wv as the search in location. One member has 107 posts.

    Thanks 1MajorTom and Eric. I found those members. I thought maybe there would be more. Maybe more lurkers than members.

    Harpers Ferry... I did a couple of Home Theater installs up that way... I think. Is there a correctional facility up that way?

    I'll take you up on the offer :) It would be a trip but I'd actually like to meet and talk with you.

    Lee: I am from Fairmont, and my brother who is in business with me, lived in Parkersbug for about 8 years. We are just part time right now(second season) but hoping to build up to full time in the near future. Seems to be plenty of lawn maintenance & landscaping work in this area, due to the aging population. The job market in WV is still not great, but probably better than it was in 93.
