Not Stony Hill (sorry). Ours does not have an overhang.
A.C. Rich - 12/01/09 - 17:11

I have Great Expectations for the solving of this mystery. Ha!
Legeros - 12/01/09 - 18:37

Definitely something Charles Dickens based….marshy area?
Silver - 12/01/09 - 18:54

It’s all there in the clues!
Legeros - 12/01/09 - 18:55

Kill Devil Hills?
Silver - 12/01/09 - 18:57

Portsmouth Island, NC?
Silver - 12/01/09 - 18:59

Is it on the coast?
Adam Brown - 12/01/09 - 19:58

To make these hints seem even stranger, one of them is also an allusion to the title of a heavy-metal song.

That might just give it away.
Legeros - 12/01/09 - 21:48

Nope…..still nothin.

Guns and Roses, “Use Your Allusion Two”???????????? I’m lost…..
Silver - 12/01/09 - 22:55

The building looks a little like the simple brick stations that used to be all over Wayne COunty. OF course, there is no long a “Fork” fire station. Maybe it is the Rosewood station, since it took over from Fork.

Hint #4. Second photo added.
Legeros - 12/02/09 - 08:09

Could it be Wyse Fork FD?
Chris - 12/02/09 - 08:55

No doesn’t look like Rosewood’s station they have a mostly metal building
car3550 - 12/02/09 - 18:31

Yeah…Wyse Fork, down off of US70 just east of Kinston. That could coincide with Mikey’s jaunt down to the Crystal Coast. As I recall it is just a simple brick building.
DJ (Email) (Web Site) - 12/02/09 - 19:22

Wyse Fork it is!

Here’s an explanation of the clues…

“It was the best of tines, it was the worst of tines” – Tines, or part of a FORK. Also an allusion to the Charles Dickens novel.

“You don’t have to be old to be it.” – WISE. Also, the title of a song by Judas Priest, “You Don’t Have to be Old to be Wise,” from their 1978 album “Stained Class.
