re: Massanutten, VA for Mardi Gras break - nctiger71
[quote]What to do at harpers ferry? Visit the fort ?[/quote]I don't think they have a fort. It is a National Historic Park and compact, so you don't have to do a lot of walking. There is very little parking so you may have to park at the visitor center and take the shuttle; about a mile or you...

re: Looking for advice on homeowners, flood ins and FEMA - nctiger71
Register with FEMA asap; there will be a deadline and you need to register before that date. I got involved with disaster recovery in NC after H Matthew in ‘16 & then Florence in ‘18. Based on my memory: FEMA expects you to use other resources before they will help. If you have insurance, you ...
