Browsing online I found this tale of a strange adventure in Hardy County, WV. (Judy, are you reading this?)
Not a ghost story, perhaps, but weird...perfect for this time of year.
I know this area fairly well; the writer has the route number wrong (it's 259, not 258), but most of what he describes is accurate. It is a little lonesome there and would not be too unusual not to meet a car, but there are houses, barns etc--very few businesses or stores, but signs of habitation. And the road is certainly lined.
