    WV: General Discussion

    I just love the drive going home, the mountains are so fun to drive in. And when I am home, the backroads are so adrenaline pumping!

    Your interstate has switchbacks.

    Granted, I took them at 90 in the snow at night driving home last Christmas (Colorado to Richmond), but... switchbacks.... seriously... wow....

    I just drove from charleston sc to huntington last weekend. It was my first road trip in my wrx. On the way back at the tamerack in beckley I saw a blue wrx and we stayed togethor though va. Pretty cool to see two blue wrx's one after another going down the highway.

    I can vouch for the fun roads in WV...esp in the mountains. But the last time I was out there was last year to goto Snow Shoe.

    I work/live in Charleston, but drive all over the state. There are a few of us(WRX's) that go to local SCCA auto-x and have a blast. Snowshoe Mtn is def a great place to play in the snow, and they sponsor a hillclimb that lots of cars go for. Most roads around are very fun to play on, and not too many people anywhere in the whole state! If anyone wants to meet up for a drive, lets go! I only see a few people here and there, and I am the only clubWRX sticker that I know of.

    I drove to Cincinnati, OH this weekend, and was on RT 35 and 52. Those are really good roads to drive as well. Lots of straights, and nice turns as well. Rural areas to play on. Very nice. Snowshoe has had 6-7 feet of snow the past month, I imagine you had a great time!!

    WV is cool. I drove through last year from Corbin, Kentucky along US-119 through Williamson, WV, and Logan, WV, into Charleston. We ate at Joe Fazio's on Bullitt Street (sort of an industrial area of the city). The atmosphere was pretty nice and the steak was delicious!

    I really like the Capitol and the statue of Lincoln out front.

    Oh, and the roads were fun too, althoug we were in my Mazda at the time

    Another great road that is not too far off of the interstate is Hawks Nest state Park. It is a very curvy 2 lane, lots of room, great pavement, phenom views. Big favorite among sport bikes and harley guys. It dumps out by Summersville lake and a drive over the New River Gorge bridge is right there. Great trip if anyone is interested!

    Take I-64 to KY and pick up the AAA. That's a fun road, but watch the speed traps. Something about passing trucks at 80 on twistys, that gets me going.

    That is a good road to play on. I have not noticed too many police, are they bad through there? I do go that way some. Thanks.
