Many memories. We would tie up our boats at Johnny's dock and eat lunch at the restaurant. Had plenty of good times at Halls too. Greg and I were driving by Allman's one Sunday morning and saw smoke coming from the restaurant. I grabbed a water hose and broke into the basement and went up the stairs to put out the fire. Greg turned on the water. Nothing came out. The water relied on a electric pump and there was no power. I had to retreat. I remember Johnny Sr. arriving on the scene to see his restaurant burn pretty much to the ground. He was upset. There was nothing anyone could do. I grew up about 5 miles from there on Boonesborough Road about 2 miles from I75. Are you from that area?
