In For a Ride

Motor Man, Marshall and I took a day trip last weekend to the mountains of western Virginia and West Virginia. It was a gorgeous fall day, the foliage was beautiful, and we had a great time.

But I knew things were going to get interesting when the GPS showed this as the road that lie ahead of us:

See all those little squiggles? Those are curves – like this one:

And this one:

And another one:

Do you see a pattern emerging here? Well that pattern repeated itself for approximately 60 miles.

When your husband (who used to drive a race car) is at the wheel, and you’re on a highway like this, you just have to hang on.  You’re in for a ride.

  1. I am sure Motor Man was loving every minute of it and I can see you and Marshall now! Man what a ride.

  2. It was … interesting… but it was a good ride – I’ve never been so happy to see a straight road out in front of us… after that hike up and down the mountain!

    Wonderful Fall colors. I have not been to West Virginia sense summer of
    1971 or 1972. Long time ago!!!!!!!!!! I remember the roads well.

  4. I feel your pain, a co-worker and I were on roads similar to this going to an office retreat this weekend in Craig County. The only difference is, the roads did not have lines painted on them and were about half the width without guard rails!! I made the horrible mistake of using Google Maps and simply trusting this to be the best route. Some other folks who were more wise knew of a better route! I am just glad Motor Man was not driving “our” car!!
