    help yourself chris!

    prior to this, the largest ex ive ever seen was a pc600 "trying" to work in the middle of a busy 4 lane street, he was trying to turn around, went one way, stick was gonna hit a pole then turned opposite and almost hit the pole on the other side, pretty funny sight!

    Ah, southern Ohio, God's country. I love it there. I grew up in Marietta, and still miss that place.
    Looks like the leaves are getting some nice colors.

    The last lock on the river, before you get to the Ohio river, is the lock at Devola. Lock #2, Devols Dam.
    Lock #1 was right in Marietta, but it was removed many years ago, when the normal pool stage was raised in all the pools up and down the Ohio River.
    There is some good fishing in the Muskingum River.
    BTW: My Grandfather's farm, northeast of Marietta, became part of the Wayne National forect acerage back in the late 1950's.
