Oct 3, 2015 - We Found the Sun

After a nice time with Cindy and her mom in Grantsville, MD, we were ready to resume the trip into West Virginia. The nice thing about RV travel is that you can change your plans on the fly. The plan was to head south into West Virginia to get to Durbin for a ride on the Durbin Rocket, a steam train from the old logging days, but after a night of heavy rain and a look at the radars for the area it looked like more of the same for the next couple of days. The campgrounds that we were looking at were both along creeks and one only had grassy...

Jun 10, 2014 - Flatwoods, WV

Spent last night in Flatwoods, WV. A beautiful campground but not many campers. The log cabin pavilion was its main building: showers, game room, laundry, and a large room with a rear wall that rolled up to be a stage for an outdoor amphitheater. The amphitheater was built into a hill so there would not be a bad seat. Next to the building was a brick outdoor fireplace. Would love to know how all of this is used during peak season. I meant to take pictures but got distracted by laundry and lightening bugs. The dryer didn't work well and,...

Dec 19, 2013 - Finally on the move! Flatwoods KOA

We finished our 2013 corn harvest yesterday. We didn’t expect to pull a quick get-a-way, but that is exactly what happened. The weather forecast didn’t look very optimistic for the next few days, and Glenna had everything packed and ready to go, so we got an early start and headed south. We decided to travel the QEW to Fort Erie, cross into the U.S.A. at Buffalo, and head west to Erie, Pa. before heading south on I-79 to Pittsburgh. The roads were perfect and the weather beautiful. The temperature got up to 60F as we entered West...

Aug 2, 2012 - West Virginia mountain momma

Today we left the junkyard and started back to bowling green KY. We made it a little more than half way before stopping in Flatwoods West Virginia, which is almost to Charleston (another slightly larger town you probably haven't heard of). Today's drive was all up and down mountains and through forests and farmland. Very pretty. Goodnight.

Aug 8, 2010 - Our trip south!!

We have had a wonderful trip and have decided it was time to head home. It has been too long since we have seen our family and didn’t realize how much we would miss all of them. We spent a couple of weeks in Youngstown, Ohio visiting family and friends. Got to spend some extended time with Jan’s mother as well as see many friends. As we packed up to leave it was hard to say goodbye. We commented on what an easy trip it had been with no breakdowns or setbacks. What a surprise in store for us. We had only driven about 5 miles on our way out...

Apr 11, 2010 - Flatwoods, WV

We are in Flatwoods, West Virginia at the KOA - only 150 miles from home now. We were greeted by a small deer as we headed for our site. During the entire trip north we were looking at all the spring flowering trees and wildflowers. That is, until we hit the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia - not a leaf on the trees. What happened to spring? I guess we will just have to wait for it to catch up with us. It is in the 70's - so that's good. Tomorrow we hope to be home early so we can de-winterize the house and start unloading the...
