OCT. 31, Friday to West Virginia,
Why does everything that can go wrong, always happen on Fridays?
We were on the road by 9 a.m., stopped in Front Royal to get the tires changed then onto I-64 by 10:30 a.m. We headed west then south-west on I-81. The scenery was absolutely breath-taking. We were driving over rolling hills through the Shenandoah Valley. We stopped at Staunton, Virginia for fuel @$3.139 then stopped at a rest area for lunch. We finally headed west on I-64 and climbed to a height of 2600 feet going through mountains full of autumn color. Gorgeous! (SEE PICTURES)
Our stop for the night was Beckley, in West Virginia, at the Coal Mine Campground, a coal mine museum and campground run by the city. We paid $22 for full hook-up in a very nice and quaint setting. I went into town to get propane ($33) then found the Ford dealership to have the truck look at. The throttle is acting up and causing a lack when I coast. I have to let go of the peddle and then press on it to get it going. This actually started a couple days ago but was very sporadic. Hope it can be fixed tomorrow.
Very warm day and sunny. It got up to almost 70*F

- We went full-time Rving in October of 2005! We retired from full time to part-time as of the end of 2015. Our present "small but comfortable" Wagon is a 2008 Camper trailer(TravelAir Rustler), pulled by a 2008 Dodge Dakota, 4X4.l. Our home base is a resort Park, in Oliver, British-Columbia, Canada. I retired in 2005 and my Life Companion, Valerie, retired October 1, 2006 from nursing. We invite you to follow and share our new adventures and mishaps. Life is but an adventure full of dreams yet to be fulfilled!
