Oct 31, 2013 - A visit with Charles WB8SL and Don KE8NK

Entering West Virginia, known as West By God! We had a wonderful visit with Charles Dotson WB8SL and Don Bowyer KE8NK. The lunch was great "and really big" at the Crossroads Restaurant in Pennsboro, WV. After lunch Charles then took us to "Davis Marbles", "Dumpster Divers Antiques" shop where I bought my grand daughter's first autographed book "If I had it my way". It is a story about a little girl and her daddy. Since her mom is an author I thought it would be a neat gift for the baby. Then we had our own personalized tour by the tour...

It's a very good 4-lane divided highway with very light traffic and runs through heavily forested hilly terrain.

Jul 26, 2006 - Salem, WV

Left Flintstone, MD traveling East on I-68 to West Virginia then South on I-79 to Clarksburg and on to Salem. We stopped at Wilderness Waterpark & Campground. Very mountainous roads with sharpturns and overhanging branches. We made it in OK, but its definately not recommend for big rigs. This park is in bad shape and is not recommended for overnight campers. We are planning to visit Elkins tomorrow to finish up over visits for the season.
