I think of that place as the Fuddruckers that went in where Three Chefs was when I was a kid.

That must have been one of the original Fuddrucker's, at least around here, as it opened in 1985.  I loved going there as a kid and I'll be sad to see it go.  I can't believe they're putting a Walgreen's in there with at least four other pharmacies in the immediate vicinity (Giant, Safeway, CVS, Kmart).

No, that closed several years ago and it's (no surprise here) a Korean joint.

There's been no confirmation about whether it's true that Fuddruckers is closing because the Koreans thought the entry on the menu for "Hot Dogs" meant something else.

Me too.

They had this Philipino woman who made THE BEST milkshakes I've ever had. My Dad and I would always vote for Fudd's just so we could get the milkshakes. When she left, it wasn't the same.

And I liked Ribsters. They were one of the first places that offered free refills when I was a kid.

Another possibility I didn't think of earlier: Fairfax's Cross County Trail. ....[/url]

Following up on my comment before about the Cross County Trail, here are a few pictures I took last week on the southernmost part of the trail. (Southern trailhead is at the end of Wadebrook Terrace, off Pohick Road immediately west of its overpass above I-95.) I went about 2.4 miles before turning around. Pictures are in order from south to north and were all taken using an iPhone camera around mid-afternoon on a weekday. There were actually four deer along the trail when I took that final picture, but they ran into the woods before I got close enough to get a good picture. Too bad I didn't have the SLR with me.

Mid county that trail gets pretty small at times, and there are numerous fallen trees across it.
