Sorry to hear this. In this particular instance a drunk's senseless, selfish act/choice affects so many. Tragic. May God comfort and heal your pain and sorrow Michael.

Here is some footage from the nutcracker adventure ride on Sunday.

Bill and his volunteers did a great job again this year putting on the event.

Wow, so sorry to hear Michael. When it rains, it pours. Hang in there man. Give me a call if you need to talk.

Thanks, I thought I was having a heart-attack at Hatfield McCoy when I couldn't stop breathing like that. :(

I hear they still make KE100's Think how much easier it would be if you'd ridden the KLR.

Nice video, indypup. In addition to learning how to pop wheelies and cross logs, it looks like another basic skill I should learn is how to turn around when stopped on a hill.

I suggest 16 to US 60 in Gauley Bridge, then 60 east looping around and down on some back roads to NRG. I have taken 41 S off of 60 into Beckley a bunch of times and it's a fun ride. Make sure you ride down the gorge on the old road and cross the old bridge at Fayette(ville?) Station. Also a few good places to eat are at the Hawk's Nest State Park Lodge on 60 and this kickass little joint called Smokey's on the Gorge, which is on the northwest side of the bridge, off a backroad CR 60 / 5 Chestnutburg / Ames Heights Rd. I took Meredith on a birthday camping trip down there 3 years ago and we just happened to catch that Smokey's place at the right time and day, they had this awesome BBQ buffet.

250 is pretty congested around the Ohio River and the first little bit in Ohio and WV has a bunch of slower speed limits and smaller towns, too. Still a good ride.

You may want to PM herewego (Mike), he lives just off 16 in Pleasants Co and is very knowledgeable about the area.
Thanks for the info .I will probably just shoot down RT.7 to Fly then take the ferry across to RT.2. I will PM you the GPS coordinates to the cabin @ Tappan Lake so you can check it out sometime. Don't pay any attenion to the Private Property & No Tresspassing signs when you start back the lane.
