Day Four of 4 – Marlinton, WVa

Being our 4th and last day. Gonna be another awesome weather in area & real hot when we head back home 90 plus degree gulp

watched those six Ontario Canadian pray together and head off on their day loop n bid them farewell as we all had chance to share some of our experience together.  One of the biker done over 8 thousand miles in 8 days and 48 states. He showed a copy of certification. Impressive. Later learned that he is a truck driver. That explains! Yellow boxes = gas stop

Black box = overnight stay

Watching both Craig and Scott departing as they both want to arrive home early n get ready for work on Tuesday whereas Sean had to wait for tow truck to come n tow his bike up to Elkins, WVa 1 1/2 hour north. Tom and I decide to take the Highland Scenic Highway once again (opposite route) then on to Elkins to meet him knowing that they d have his rear tire replaced with new one!lovely Highland Scenic Highway. Everyone of ya oughta go this route! 
Sorry didn’t take picture of Sean with world biggest smile as his bike is up n roaring once again! Rode all the way facing heat wave as we depart the mountain region   Almost ten hours and a bit over 300 miles for the day. And a total of over 900 miles over the 4 day course. Amazing trip. Definitely something for us to remember by! Gonna come back again as it is such a lovely area to explore by motorcycle (auto too as well)
