End of the road.

This map was a tribute to good barbecue, a map documenting the travels of hundreds of hungry diners who at one point or another made their way to Backwoods BBQ in Greenbrier.  Alas, with the passing of Doug Chrestman, the restaurant is no more.  Earlier today I noticed the sign out front as I passed, the sign announcing the restaurant is closed and searching for a new owner.  A fund has been set up for Doug's wife Sharon and their children to handle expenses.  I sure hate to see it go... it was one of the first restaurants I ever blogged about, and even mentioned in USA Today.
