    Dodgy mobile phone service

    as useful as a fur-lined bathtub in Virgilina

    Being a small town 17 miles (27 km.) from a town of any size, it should come as no surprise that mobile phone service would be dodgy here, at best. As you drive from Clarksville on Route 49, reliable service ends round about Nelson (just before the Mecklenburg and Halifax County line). Coming from the other way, it gets dodgy round about Christie. Even when you do get service, you run into the problem of roaming charges. As more younger people like my friend Daniel move in, there will be better and more numerous mobile phone towers which would put this tip obsolete. In the meantime, the dodgy mobile phone service is actually part of the charm of a town this size. Those who absolutely, positively must be in contact with everybody right now would probably not see that charm anyhow.

    Virgilina traffic jam

    Virgilina traffic jam

    Summerfest Saturday, particularly between 8 am and 12 noon, is the one day in the year where you will experience a traffic jam in the hamlet of Virgilina. If you attend a Summerfest, either come down the day before or get there as early as possible on Summerfest day. Bring your own folding chairs to set up along the parade route.

    don't drink the water

    The only drawback I see to life in Virgilina is the water. All the minerals in the town water make it so hard that if you drop it, it will break. That water can play havoc to the inner workings of those not accustomed. The best alternative I know of is to either drink juices and soft drinks or buy bottled water.

    A VT meeting here? Don't laugh, it could happen.

    A VT meeting in Virgilina?

    Of course the Summerfest (last Saturday before the last Monday in May) might be the best time to do it. The only drawback is the nearest hotel is in Clarksville. There would be relatively cheap fare served by vendors and the Volunteer Fire Department, music, and dancing in the streets (the type you might expect for a small Southern town). Just bring a folding chair and come early for the parade so you don't get caught in Virgilina's annual traffic jam.
