o My Thursday route will bring me through Zanesville then OH555 -- reputedly the best motorcycle road in Ohio. I should be getting to Parkersburg, WV around 4 PM then Elkins, WV around 6:30 PM.
o Paulie and I will be meeting at the Graceland Inn where we will drink VO on the rocks and maybe oogle a few co-eds.
