I took a 4 day trip to visit West Virgina and ride some more Blue Ridge Parkway. I didn’t ride much in WV eariler in the summer when I was there in August so I wanted to check it out a bit.
I rode 401 miles on the 23rd to get to Uniontown south of Pittsburgh. I had packed up camping gear and thought I was going to camp some of the nights at least. I didn’t camp one night due to the sun going down at around 5 Pm and the sub freezing weather. I did stop at a camp site on friday night but couldn’t get and fire wood so I found a hotel instead.

Some of the nicer rodes I rode in WV. 219, 55, 33
I stayed in a Budget Inn at Princeton, WV the second night after checking out Greenbrier State Forest Campgrounds, no firewood means no camping.
This is by the side of Skyline Drive in Shenandoah Park right off of 33. The Drive was closed due to ice storms earlier that week. If you look at the top of the trees you will see that most are cracked off.
I met up with Dave and Maria. They picked up a used Triumph speed triple in NC.
We stayed the 25th at a super 8 in Waynesboro, VA right near the BRP and Skyline Drive.
I Dropped the DL for the first time on Sunday. I left the brake lock on and tried to ride off. At least nothing broke. The long slab ride home was pretty boring from Front Royal, VA to Brookyn, NY. It was about 300 miles. I need a touring seat.
