This trip started in May 1999 with Dave leaving Greenfield, OH and meeting me at my house in Franklin, OH around 1:30 in the afternoon.  The trip was 840 miles long lasting the biggest part of 2 1/2 days and took us thru KY, part of VA and WV and of course OH.

Some of the towns we ventured thru for gas/food stops, etc.  were:

KY -> Alexandria, Mt. Sterling, Slade, Beattyville, Jackson, Hazard & Whitesburg; 

VA -> Norton, Jasper, Fort Blackmore & Tazewell; 

WV -> Bishop, War, Welch, Gilbert, Chief Logan State Park & Huntington; 

OH -> Ironton, Oak Hill, Jackson, Chillicothe, Cincinnati, Greenfield & Franklin.
