Haven't seen you in ages. I stumbled onto your ride report and followed it.
When I go up to Parkersburg WV I take 16 from Marion to Beckley.
From Beckley I take a combination of 19, 16 through Gauley Bridge, pick up 36 at Clay Junction, then 14 at Spencer which brings me out to I77 at Mineral Wells. Then it's just a few miles of interstate into Parkersburg.
If you use a GPS I can send you the route.
One word of caution, Gauley Bridge is a speed trap. Be very careful if you ride through there. They will even make up things to give you a ticket.
