Travel Tips for Parkersburg

Pete and Re-Pete--the walking men....

by kevanrijn

No doubt you've heard Pete and Re-Pete jokes. Example: two men, Pete and Re-Pete went out fishing in a boat. Pete fell in. Who was left in the boat? Re-Pete. Well, Parkersburg is home to the real Pete and Re-Pete--John and Gerald Beckett. You may find yourself doing a double take if you encounter them. No need to get your eyes checked--or worry that you've had too much to drink--you aren't seeing double. No, you have just had an encounter with Parkersburg's two most famous eccentrics!

Pete and Re-Pete are two elderly, identical-looking men. They look alike, they dress alike--from their hats to their footwear. According to what I've heard, they are brothers--but not twins.

That is not so unusual perhaps--two grown men who aren't twins dressing as if they are--but their behavior is the kicker. The two men do nothing but walk. All day long. All night long too, from what we can tell. I've encountered them walking around at 2 am. 6am. Middle of day. Late in the evening. All hours, all weathers.

And it isn't even that they dress like twins when they aren't, and spend all their time walking together. It's the way they walk. Not side by side, as you might expect. Nope. They are always walking the same way.... single file, one in front of the other. Not close together though. Not even within talking distance. Usually one of them is a quarter to half a block behind the other. They don't talk. Not even to coordinate where they are going.

If one of them gets too far ahead of the other, he stops for a bit and waits for the other to get closer--but not close enough to walk together. I've even seen them stop and lie down under a shade tree--one laid down on one side of the tree and one laid down on the opposite side. Keeping an eye out for Pete and Re-Pete is a local custom of sorts.

Update: John was struck by a car in August 2006 while walking at night. His leg was broken but he is recooperating nicely. His brother still walks around town...while pushing John in his wheelchair.

Watch the River roll by....

by kevanrijn

Heaven help me, I've discovered yet another park with lovely views. This one is very obscure--I've never heard about it but just discovered it by accident this week. It was a wonderful place to watch dawn breaking over the city and the river. The park is equipped with a few swings, benches, a covered picnic pavilion and a small dock. Ducks hang out around the dock, looking for handouts.

If you are looking for real peace and quiet, and gorgeous serene views, this might be a really good bet. It would be a great place to take a date on a romantic picnic. Perhaps, in other seasons and at other times, the park is not so deserted and quiet...but on a cold and snowy January morning near dawn, you could not ask for a better place for private contemplation.

To find this hidden gem of a park, you must find your way to Kokomo's first. Kokomos is a bar and restaurant located at the confluence of the Little Kanawha River and the Ohio River across from downtown Parkersburg. Getting there is complicated.... From downtown Parkersburg, take East Street (one way so you can't go the wrong direction) across the East Bridge to Camden Avenue. Turn right on Camden Avenue. Turn right on Johnson Street. Turn right on 4th Avenue. Follow 4th Avenue around the curve and take the right hand fork down the hill onto Milton Street. Stay on Milton Street, which turns into 1st Avenue. 1st Avenue dead ends at Kokomos. The park is right next to Kokomos rear parking lot.

"Driving through the older section of town"

This photo was taken from the car. We were driving through town on our way to the Parkersburg Mall.
My kids needed to go there for School close shopping and we like to go to the Movie Theater while there.
