New England 2013 travel blog

I can almost hear John Denver: country roads take me home to the place I belong. We decided to take a slightly more direct, but possibly longer, route home via I-79 and I-64 through West Virginia and Kentucky rather than fight the trucks on I-70 all the way. We'll pick it up soon enough in St. Louis. So far, that has turned out to be a great decision. The drive through western Maryland and then down through West Virginia was absolutely beautiful. Lots of hilly country, gorgeous fall colors in the trees, and farmland that looks like the picture books. We landed in the strangest KOA campground I've ever seen in either Sutton or Flatwoods, depending on which sign you believe. It's actually attached to a conference hotel but you can't see the hotel from here, or the campground from there. Campers are allowed to use the hotel facilities -- workout room, pool, hot tub, etc. We had dinner in the hotel dining room. As I said, a little strange but nice. There is finally some grass and large enough sites that the "girls" could go out for a while tonight. They seem to be holding up pretty well. The only down side is that the nearest grocery store is five miles away, so we'll stop there in the morning since it's in the direction we're going.
