58 from Damascus to Volney is awesome. 16 over the mountain to Tazewell is an adventure.

Wait till you hit southeast Ohio with it's blind, rollercoaster curves.

I do those so that I can find the good stuff again years later. I will be reviewing my trip to the 2008 National for an upcoming trip to the Dragon this summer.

Slides and Jimmy and I had a swell day. Checked out the Kinzua Bridge and had a real nice blast down 666.
We're in Pittsburgh. Hoping tomorrow works out as well as today did.

We came. We rode. Much fun was had despite some typical psychotic spring weather. Chris and I managed to have a great sunny ride down on Friday, an awesome sunny Saturday morning followed by a damp (wet roads, not raining) afternoon. Sunday morning was quite brisk with snow/ice on the bikes and temps in the mid/upper 30s. We hit some rain on WV20, but it was mostly just a weird mix of wet roads and some drizzle with periods of sun, a squall of ice pellets, and gusty winds much of the day.

Rode lots of great roads. Had fun hanging with everyone at the (nicely upgraded/remodeled) resort. Got to meet Orson. Finished the weekend with about 920 miles on the clock. Looking for to doing again in September in Hancock.
