    Awesome Kevin. :D I still think mine's too dark, though...

    Boonie! You gonna make "Ride to Shoot"? Carol and I will be there. I might even be sober enough to hold a conversation. :D

    Made the trip to CADVR.

    Had a nice morning to start out, stopped at Lover's Leap for a quick shot.

    I don't remember where this was...

    Edit: Yes, I do. It's at the top of the hill on US 58 after making the excellent run up from Stewart.

    Somewhere in WV I spied this Mailpouch ad. I wish some of these got better preservation.

    The bridge on US 33 is looking nice, it may have been painted since I went over it last.

    I spent the first night at Swingset's place, near Columbus. He had a private tent site a quarter of a mile behind his house. The Swingset family was gracious enough to provide me with a nice steak dinner and a campfire as well. Went to sleep with the coyotes and owls and no mosquitoes. The tent was even dry in the morning. :clap Many thanks to the Swingsets!

    Early Ohio morning.

    Came on this accident about midmorning; looked like a mini pickup vs a semi. We can guess who won that encounter.

    Eventually the troopers waved us back so I did some off the cuff detouring.

    People complain about Ohio but I usually enjoy the rides though there.
