    My wife and I have traveled back and forth from SC to Matewan for several years. Pulling big trailer I normally take 26 West to 23 North to Pikeville Ky and then take 119 to Belfry Ky and then 319 to 1056. Turn left on 1056 and follow it app. 5 miles to Matewan Wv. For more info call Kathy at 304 426 4700. Kathy knows everything. Lol If you choose this route you will be on 4 lanes until you get to Belfry Ky. The remaining distance is app. 12 miles of 2 lane twisties. If you choose other options such as 52 and or 460 there are many 2 lane twisties and mountains to cross and small towns with 25 mile speed zones to slow you down and posibility of speeding tickets and dropping your rig into ditch lines.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks much for the local knowledge,
    Sounds like a plan. See you at the rally

    What is the camping situation? I might be down on Tuesday or Wednesday Am on my bike with a tent. I am looking to reserve a couple spots for my buddies who are driving trucks.

    <====> Only have a hammock guy. Except that I will be looking for that set of stakes in the ground. And as for asking for the ghost pepper once hitting town. My wife bought a bottle of some ghost pepper vodka the other day. And it really does taste like a ghost pepper. One more question, water? is there a clean spicket to pull water from or is this more of a bring bottles of water type of event? And if so I am assuming there is a place in walking distance to buy some for each day. Thanks in advance for answering the questions.

    We're so excited to go, my daughter, Hannah, has checked out library books to learn history of the area. Would anyone happen to be giving any history tours?

    Joe, You would be much better off to go the way you came before. US 52 north out of Bluefield is a goat path at best. Add the coal trucks to that and its not a good place to be pulling any kind of trailer. You pass through numerous towns along the way that have a cop with radar. Coming from the North definitely 119 thru Charleston.
