    Canaan Valley, WV - where our cars belong

    Just got back from a fantastic weekend away w my girlfriend celebrating our one year anniversary. She's a city girl for the most part so this was a big stretch for her, but she seemed to really enjoy the relaxing surroundings.....so that means I got the green light to setup more fishing trips in the future :redspot.

    On to the pics:

    Stopped in Harpers Ferry Saturday for Lunch, good food for sure and pretty good roads but the traffic stole my fun Click here to enlarge

    3 Hour trip out Rt. 50 and some fantastic roads once you get into the really rural areas. Killed a few million bugs on the way out...nothing a wet microfiber couldnt cure.

    Sunday Morning on the way out to Timberline for some hiking and riding up their chairlift to the top....awesome view and some really cool trails up there. Almost like an alpine rainforest.

    I gotta tell you guys, the roads in this part of West Virginia are just fantastic. Barely ever straight, smooth as glass, wide lanes, great scenary, high speed limits, no cops, low traffic, switchbacks and the like on every mountain. I had a freaking blast!!!!

    Gassin up Sunday morning. Believe it or not this thing turned in 22.1mpg on the whole 600 mile plus trip in the mountains!!! I was pretty impressed considering this car should be around 500bhp and I was NOT being gentle in the mountains......ample boost was applied.

    Our last day there on the way to a local river to catch some trout.....tell me these roads dont just beg to be torn up. I really wish I could/would have stopped to take pics of the switchbacks, it was just really unsafe to stop on those sections Click here to enlarge

    Finally home, relieved and ready to wash the car lol....this is the dirtiest its been since I owned it. The ride back through the mountains in the rain just covered it in crap.

    no worries, they never stayed long. I gave the car full wipe downs every morning when I got up.
