Looks like I'm hitting 81 in Staunton then 64 west. Leaving here around 8 or so, about 3 hours to Staunton from my house.

We can meet 1130-1200 at either the Fairfield Rest Stop, about mm 198, or do lunch in Lexington at Sorrento's (XSEast 2011 venue) or The Palms. Cheapest fuel in the area at Exit 205.

Arrived at Twin Falls Resort.

Beautiful sunny day. Awesome curvy road over the mountain into Saulsville then curvy curvy curvy very scenic 4 miles in the park to the resort.

Had late lunch snack with Earl and Ralph near Beckley. Arrivals so far: Earl, Ralph, Duwayne, Jim, Darrell, Ted& Heather plus it looks like Tom & Pam here too.

Remote area so cell phones spotty at best.

Maybe post a couple pics tonight.

Jeff
