Oh yeah, there are a few of those around here!

I am working on an environmental cleanup project at the DOE and USEC operated uranium enrichment facility located just outside of Piketon. It was one of the three uranium enrichment facilities in the US that operated during the cold war. There was also Paducah and Oak Ridge. The facility used a gaseous diffusion process to enrich uranium to a fissile state. The gaseous diffusion plant is on cold shut-down while a small pilot plant of 12 centrifuges is currently operating. Approval of a large DOE funding to go full scale with the centrifuge plant is currently in waiting.

Sounds like fun :EH: If you make it down to Portsmouth try the Hamburger Inn, kind of like White Castle but better.

Well, I drove down to PORTS and I did find the Hamburger Inn. Sadly it is closed. The sign in the window says temporarily closed but it doesn't look like it has been open in a long long time. :( Thanks for the heads up though ludlow66. I was really looking forward to that even though it would have been cheating on my diet. :BEEF:

Wow this is sooooo sad to see. :cry: :cry: This place is a big piece of my childhood and my family history. Back in the late 30's this is where my father took my mother when they were dating as teenagers. They have three different pictures of my parents on the wall one from the 30's one from the 70's and one from the 90's. Even though I grew up in Cincinnati we went to Portsmouth 4-5 times a year and always went here for a hamburger.

Portsmouth is the town where my parents grew up and most of the 83 first cousins (yes I said 83) were born. I have to call my some of the cousins there to see what the deal is. Hopefully they just closed for the winter :PRAY:

August sorry you couldn't eat here hope you had an enjoyable trip anyway

WOW, I had no idea you had such a personal connection with that place. I was REALLY looking forward to going there and getting a meal and taking some pictures and writing a full on review of the place for you. I looked in the window and it doesn't look like it has been used in quite a while. I would be curious to find out what the deal is please keep me posted if you find out.
