Parkersburg, West Virginia

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 60 miles from Point Pleasant to Parkersburg, West Virginia. I began in West Virginia and ended in West Virginia, but because of the way the Ohio River zig-zags, most of the drive occurred on Ohio State Highway 7 that had very light traffic and ran alongside the Ohio River a good part of the way.

Before leaving Point Pleasant we had some morning fog so I went outside to see what I could see…and this is what I saw…




We crossed back into Ohio over this pretty bridge as seen from a Wal-Mart parking lot…


Going across the bridge…


Along the way we passed through Pomeroy, Ohio with the Ohio River on the right…


On this bridge we crossed the Ohio River into Parkersburg, West Virginia…


Where we ended up at a very friendly VFW Post #1212…


Here’s the usual dinette window photo…


Getting up close to the dinette window and looking down I could see a small stream and told Mary we are parked on waterfront property! 🙂


Other than the excessive heat and humidity we enjoyed a nice stay.

We will move along later this morning.

Enjoying very friendly VFW Posts is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
