We made our first trip on Thursday to the house, which is located in the southern part of West Virginia. We took Burt (stands for big ugly red truck) and decided to take the scenic route instead of the 4-lane for most of the way. We were rewarded with breathtaking scenery, a fine twisty mountain road and lots to look at along the way. (And yes, we came home with a truck stuffed full. More about that later.)
So, travel with me along our journey:
