Honda 1, Crab 0
A Pair of River Towns
An Autoweek Pick
Today's drive was mostly along one of the roads that Autoweek magazine
picked as one of the nation's best drives. It also happens to be a scenic
byway designated by the US Forest Service.
Point Pleasant, West Virginia, is a place with a lot of history and I tried to at least
get a glimpse of it. Then I headed north to spend the night in Marietta,
Ohio, the first permanent settlement in the Northwest Territory.
I didn't travel far on the first day of the holiday weekend but believe
me, it was a trip. I headed up the road just fifteen miles to
Blanchester where a guy was planning on jumping his motorcycle over the
world's largest horseshoe crab and through a wall of fire. Would you want
to leave if this was happening in your neighborhood? I'll try to cover
more ground on Sunday and Monday.
