Congtrats!! That's freaking awsome!
What does it feel like to actually be done??

I keep flip-flopping on whether I should go back for more. So far, the price tag has made the choice for me.

JD sorry we missed ya. I know what you mean about the temperature....that Venting Machine jacket and mesh pants was a tad chilly ! good thing we had cold beer and wings to warm us up
Oh.....and your rear tire is right where I have been peeing since wednesday.....
Bear! Were you still on the dirt or pavement? I bet that would be a surprise for one of the fishermen.

I could swear we saw a coyote cross our path in Pendleton County on 33 . Are there coyotes other than Brian up there?

Yes there are. Even around here, if you look hard enough.

Took a pic of this just outside of the Monongahela around Durbin, WV.

If you happen to whack one, just mail the head and stomach to WVU.

Amherst County outside of Lynchburg has them

Hear them more than we see them. Always fun in the evenings when they are talking - our Husky sits and listens intently for about 10 minutes, then lets loose a very serious, 15 second howl.

They shut up after that..

If you come out of the campground and go down a little bit there is a spot you can either go straight (which is the way we came in) or turn right. Turn right and make another right (sign and GPS still say it's Smoke Hole Rd) It's the loong twisty, paved (and very clean) rd that snakes through the forest.

Anyway, thanks for mentioning it. Now I have to get the tire and boots over to the clinic, get them tested for anything that won't, ya know, wash off.

YUP!....The port-a-potty is only for "sittin' " purposes according to Brian.. Every morning I would wake up and hafta dodge some foamy wet spot he would strategically place
