    If you hate Virginia, you are really going to hate West Virginia. It has a lot of the same stuff, beautiful back roads , great old buildings, terrific rivers and bridges to cross, wonderful mountain vistas.

    Oh, those were just a few things I was reminded of this Sunday.
    :dealI've got lots of reasons to hate Virginia...

    Take for instance how they get rid of their trains and turn the tracks into bike paths...

    [​IMG]

    While the poor old train sits locked in a cage...
    [​IMG]

    weary hikers can't even catch a ride anymore...
    [​IMG]

    All the while they're just hogging more scenery......
    [​IMG]

    As if it wasn't bad enough that Virginia's full of these crooked roads...they had to go and exploit that poor banjo too!!!
    [​IMG]

    I'm sure there's plenty of more reasons to hate Virginia.......

    It's just that every day the Virginia I love shrinks a little more. I just hope I die before it does.

    Thanks..... :beer
    I should have slowed it down a little more..
    But I was just playing around...

    I use paint shop pro 7..
    A very good friend gave me...:thumb
    I use the Animation Shop 3 :deal Part of the program

    I have dial up so I size photos to 600x450.
    As for embedding that's easy ...
    Right click copy n paste...
    Just remember you need to know what your host allows in kb
    and keep your animation smaller then it.... :thumb

    Just up load as any other photo.... It will be a gif.... :evil
    Hey if I can do it anyone can....

    Kevin, delete those pics before VA becomes another western NC/north GA. I'd like my home state to remain free of the traffic that has clogged this area in recent years, thank you very much.:cry Just in case I decide to move back there.:deal

    Hell ya, Virginia was BY FAR the worst state I drove through on my trip to New Hamshire!! I mean, why does 1 state have to be so beautiful from 1 end to another?? All those rolling hills with pastures on them are something to behold in person , very nice state.

    Virginia is great. NOrthern Va is gone, and most of maryland and pa are horrible riding places. Really populated and busy.

    Virginia is great but its far for me. Wish i was closer.
