Happy West Virginia Day!

Happy 157th birthday to my home state! I hope all of our WV members here remembered to leave out pepperoni rolls and some white lightning for the Mothman.

All silliness aside, thank God for such a beautiful state that still remembers what the founding fathers intended. For those of you in WV, enjoy the day as best you can under the current circumstances. I'll be splitting my time next week between Davis/Canaan and Charleston.

I'm coming up on three years of being in WV and, more importantly, away from the MD Gulag. My move here is one of the best decisions I have made ever! This may not be true or possible for others, but for me it's been terrific.

Enjoyed some freedom over a long Father's day weekend at our undisclosed location in WV. Got to play with one of my toys that I can't have in MD.... it was FUN!

I moved here four years ago, it's been good so far.

My 200 mile drive to our undisclosed location 6 miles off I-79 is my favorite drive. Exit 139. Gunrunners and ATR pretty much right there.

A good friend just bought 40+ acres in WV, with two ponds on it, and a lovely home that he’s treating (so far) as a weekend getaway place and remote gun safe. He’s trying to talk me into buying half the land and putting up a place. It’s sure tempting.

We just got back from a week split between the Canaan Valley area and Charleston.

75°F and sunny for the weather most days while we were in Canaan with only brief periods of occasional isolated showers. Charleston was highs around 80°F and a little more humid, but we took care of that with my dad's fully-restored 1978 Chris Craft Catalina 28 (with a Chevy 350 instead of the standard Chevy 305) Nothing like flying up river on a hot day to cool you right off.

Some pictures below of some of our excursions. I think they just go to further the reality that WV is God's country.
