The Guys did not want to deal with the hassles of toll roads so we left I64 at Sam Black Church Road, in West Virginia, to join the US60 – the Midland trail. What a beautiful drive and a great glimpse into West Virginia. We traveled through shady forests, small towns, along a wide river and past coal mines and plants. The journey brought wide grins to the The Guys faces and grip marks in the sissy bar on Tess’s side of the car.
The Girls smile for the day: The Guys stopped in Smithers for gas while The Girls were parked waiting a blue pickup drove to the front of the car. The gentleman in the pickup looked at the license plate then up at The Girls, back to the license plate an back to The Girls. Finally he asked if we were lost. Vee smiled then replied with something like ‘ I think we took a really wrong turn at Salt Lake City’. The gentleman smiled and replied that here was from around there but he would have to say the he agreed with us (regarding the wrong turn), then drove off with his smile.
