Left WV over this, the New River Bridge, the world’s longest single-arch steel span and at 876′ feet tall is the second tallest in the US. We arrived in Bristol in time to set up camp, and get to the Nationwide race. Kyle Busch won.

A long day… just drove to WV and picked this camp site, it’s a dead end forest service road off the Tea Creek in Monongahela National Forest. No people and no bears.

After our trip to Canada and the off-the-track driving in WV, I realized how important GPS is to me, so I got a cheap (used) netbook and built a mount, so hopefully I will have 1:24,000 scale topo maps and GPS working soon. I also added a rear view camera to the trailer and 12 volt fans to cool the sleeping area of the truck. All this is removable in 5 minutes, so it will be trip stuff mainly!
