Looks like I timed it right! The fall colors in W. Virginia and Virginia’s Shenandoah national park should be peaking in the next few days. I plan to set out either on thursday or friday morning (depending on how many days I can take off from work) and return by sunday evening. I’ll be camping, unless the weather is really bad, in which case I’ll seek a motel. In preparation for the trip I changed the engine oil, filter and (shaft) drive oil today. Here’s the trip route from Charleston, WV.
