ePodunk.com

What a great domain name.

And a wonderfully useful website as well.

All manner of information and features including lots of links to find out more about anyplace you're curious about.

Excellent for checking out the little town you grew up in to see what other people have to say about it.

How is it that this site is unknown?

It's not right and I'm doing my darndest to change that.
