I was going to write something like "how can you do this to me, posting all these nice pics" but then I remembered that I don't have to follow this thread, or even the Ohio Group. But I still want to.

Do you have the route plotted? I can't find Rt18. This is Easter weekend...correct? Charleston 8:20 am? How many miles? Will there be cookies? Are we there yet? :shock:

The route isn't potted, but it seemed to me that everyone was a bit happier after the cookies were handed out.

Hmmm....How far up Rt 220? If I run that up to Rt 250 then up to Elkin then straight home. :shock: That is 690 miles! That's 16 to 17 hours! Ouch!

I am thinking of taking Jo (that's my wife) and getting a room!!

RT 18 comes off 311 just north of Paint Bank and runs north east until you hit 220 just after passing I 64.

I got in 675 miles Saturday with the ride we did in eastern KY. So it's very doable for a day ride. But since you mentioned bringing wife and getting a room. .. we understand. Lol. Hope you can make it.

The last couple times I went to Paint Bank it was a 12 hr day.
12 hours is not a problem! But it was almost 16 hours without any stops (per google maps)...that would realistically be around 20 hours. (lunch...gas...chats...supper) Man!! I should just tagged 4 more hours on and get an IBA cert!!:nojoke:

I have looked at a couple of trips over in that area (Rt 50 to Elkin and down 219)...it always would turn into a 2 day trip for me on google maps.

I will be taking 220 up to 39 through Marlington. If you and Jo want to head up to 250 thats fine but that way is much longer for me.
