Gary's hometown that he grew up in is Pound, VA/Wise county where I grew up also, is about 10-15 miles away. Only claim to fame for that little town. His sister was married to our local shoe repairman we had back then. He is a true Hero to all of us back there.

Thanks for posting, just checked it out on foreflight; sad that the airport deli is closed permanently as it is nice to grab a bite, like the one at CGE. I will have to put this airstrip on the list.
