Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sun Feb 24, 2013, 08:16 AM

In three months, I will become a resident of West Virginia...

Morgantown, to be specific.
Suggestions on good eats, drinks, things to do?

I am so, so excited.

Thanks in advance!

1. Go Mountaineers

Buck Wheat Pancakes and 'whole-hog' sausage every Sunday (kingwood buck wheat festival, yum) , ‘Gabe’s & & Pechins 1/2 cost of living, White Water rafting, biking and snowmobiling in mountains. Deep creek, Canaan Valley Resort /cheat lake (& resort) / Ohio Pile /falling waters/ Blackwater falls /greenbrier and a thousand mountains, are Beautiful.. Snow Shoe best keep secret east of MS, Pittsburgh best keep secret in US (40 minutes). , Everybody can 'weld'. Every body works hard, from grandma to children except during hunting season where Morgantown most resembles a ghost town.

6. Well, I can't eat sausage...

but pancakes are one of my favorite foods.
I guess I'll have to learn how to weld. I will never hunt, but don't preach about it either.
I ski and mountain bike, and hope to learn climbing.
I'll root for WVU...unless they're playing Oklahoma.

8. I like the cold quite a bit...as long as there's snow!

I grew up in the northeast, so it will be nice to be closer to home.
I'm also a gigantic college football fan. I've been informed I should root for WVU I think I'll pass when they play Oklahoma though.

10. You definitely should root for WVU!

(daughter attended.)

Won't ALWAYS be snow, and sure doesn't look like Oklahoma, but if you're an easterner (as I am,) you should be happy to be back!

5. Oh no, not attending.

I've done more post-high school work than most people. I'll be working in town.
