Jun 5, 2018 - Day 2 - Bellefonte, PA to Lewisburg, WV

What a day!!! We are still dizzy from the drive! We left Bellefonte, PA at 7:30 AM with the sun shining through the clouds and temperature 57 degrees. In Western Pennsylvania we saw lots of wind turbines in the distance - and learned that Western PA had multiple wind farms, these 23 being part of the Casselman Wind Project. The Casselman Wind Farm, located in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, is putting land reclaimed from a former coal mine to productive use. Eight of the project's 23 wind turbines sit atop a rehabilitated surface mine. In...

Jun 10, 2017 - Lewisburg WV

Our time at the rally, without getting into too much detail, was spent going to seminars, looking at the new coaches on display, hanging out with our next door neighbors from Wake Forest, NC, getting the house washed and waxed, the holding tanks pressure cleaned, buying some stuff and eating...all of which was plenty to keep us very busy from Monday till Friday morning. And no, we did not buy a new coach. And yes, we were tempted; but rational thinking prevailed. We actually had a very good time and overall things went well. In fact, the...

May 25, 2017 - Day 9

Day 9 Today was a great day. There was 100% chance of rain but it didn't rain at all!! We began the day by winning 3 pairs of leather gloves and a book about the Vietnam wall. There is a raffle drawing every morning. After another delicious breakfast and the usual meeting, we headed for the capital city of Charleston, WV. This was only an 18 mile ride. We parked in the circular drive in front of the capital building. The capital building and ground are beautiful. We walked around and looked at the war memorials and took a group picture on...

Sep 18, 2014 - Day One of the Great Adventure

We caught up with Jean and Dave at the mm 213 rest area. After a brief pit stop and photo op, we headed west on I-64. We needed to refuel before hitting W. Va and decided on the Pilot Service Center on I-81/64. Dave and Jean had told us they were really looking forward to this extended trip with two old camping pros like us. So on our first refueling we led them on a merry-go-round trying to approach the diesel pumps in a not-RV-friendly station. We finally accomplished the refueling but there was no place to park the rigs for our lunch...

New Mexico Trek 2014

May 22, 2014 - Day 9

After Hurricane the group headed to the capital in Charleston. It was recommended that I not follow them as the area streets are very narrow and there is darn little parking for my truck and trailer. So I followed the other chase vehicles onto Hwy 60 a ways to a café where we could wait. Hwy 60 turned out to be about 100 miles of twisty 2-lane with lots of ups and downs. The riders love this stuff but not a lot of fun in my rig. But the scenery is superb. We arrived in Rainelle just after noon. Now I must tell you a little about Rainelle....

Oct 15, 2013 - West Virginia

From State Fairgrounds of West Virginia Lewisburg, WV Another long drive today. We left Indiana, drove through Kentucky and West Virginia. We are just a few miles from the Virginia line. We wanted to stop here to see our friends, Sandy and Jerry Dawson. This campground is at the fairgrounds which is about 3 miles from Sandy and Jerry. It’s very nice and level. There are 7 other RV’s here too. It’s very open so we had no trouble getting a satellite signal. Bill was happy to be able to watch the Redskins and Cowboys game. Monday morning,...

Oct 2, 2012 - Dayton, Ohio to Lewisburg, WV

We left Dayton in overcast skies, threatening rain. The further south we traveled, the more it looked like it was going to clear up. We traveled south on Route 35 and enjoyed it, because there wasn't much semi-tractor trailer traffic (at this point). Reached Chillicothe, Ohio which is set beside the Scioto River in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. Went to the Hopewell Culture National Historic Park. They have a wonderful intro movie in the visitor's center, and their small museum has wonder artifacts from the mound excavations....

May 12, 2010 - Riding in the rain

Thought we finally caught a break in the weather..left this morning under blue skies and warm weather headed to the incredible roads of WV. About two hours down the road, it was apparent that our good luck was about to go south. You know the weather map when you see the red and yellow crap (the bad stuff), we rode under that most of the day...rained like a son-of-bitch. This is my second time touring west Virginia, and both times it was constant rain. Remember that Lou? Starting to think, I bring the rain to west Virgina. Oh well, that is...
