Then I look to go a little east toward Buckhannon and down WV 20.

Also, looking to take in the Skyline Drive and on into DC. I heard great things about SKD and I heard that it's 35 mph.

BTW - what do they charge for that ferry ride?

Advice and suggestions. . . . . .

Thx guys - BR
When you make it to Marlinton, there's an ADV friendly BBQ joint run by a retired couple who make a great pulled pork sandwich. Bull and Bear Restaurant, it's on 219 just south of town. Lenny and Carol are good people.

He's only open Thursday - Saturday from 5-8PM. It's just a retirement gig for them, but the food is great and the company even better.

Avoid the Greenbrier Grille. The view is pretty, but the food is mediocre and service is worse.
