FALL CRUISE - October 7-8, 2017
Romney West Virginia




HMCCC Members Enjoy the fall cruise to Romney West Virginia

This year, we cruised to Romney, WV for a really nice weekend. Many thanks to Galen & Marjie and Jim & Linda for organizing a fun weekend (with lots of good food!). First, Get Well Wishes to Galen who recently had knee replacement surgery and then had a few complications so he and Marjie could not fully participate in the Fall Cruise, although they were vital in the planning stages!

Here's who went: Galen & Marjie, Jim & Linda in their '63 Olds Cutlass convertible, Butch & Sissy in Reddawg '57, Frank & Alice, John & Janet in their '57 Ford, Ed & Marsha in their Camaro, Frank & Bev in their Camaro, Richard & Julie in their '56, Mike & Nanette and Rick & Sue.

We started out Saturday morning and headed towards Wild & Wonderful West Virginia. We stopped at Galen & Marjie's home in Ridgeley to visit for a bit on our way to lunch. After a nice visit, the rest of us headed to Wilma's Diner in Fort Ashby for a great lunch and then on to the Potomac Eagle to ride the train and look for eagles! Galen & Marjie met up with us at the train station for the three hour trip. The weather was wonderful with lots of sunshine. We saw two eagle aeries and many eagles in majestic flight. We even saw one eagle resting on a tree branch totally not impressed by us or the train.

After the wonderful train ride, we headed out to The Main Street Grill in Romney for a great dinner and then on to the KookWink Motel which was delightfully retro but thoroughly modern for a great night's sleep after lots of visiting. Then up on Sunday morning for breakfast at Mountain Top Restaurant. From there, some of us took off for home. We had planned to visit a cool arts & crafts and antiques place, but they were not open. Since the day had dawned with some sprinkles, we weren't sure how our planned drive down The Pinnacle (a fantastic overlook) would work out, but just before we got there the showers stopped and we had a fantastic view of the wilds and wonders of West Virginia. Much to our surprise, a resident of the Pinnacle stopped to admire our classic cars and said "follow me!" for an even more impressive private view of the mountains and valley. Originally from London, his wife was from Romney and he let us ever upwards on the mountain for a truly breathtaking view! Wow!

After our cruise along the mountain ridge, at 1,973 feet, we descended and headed towards home. Marsha found a great shop 'Rustic Touch' where we spent some time shopping. Then on to Hancock via scenic Route 40, for late lunch/early dinner at Park & Dine and then some shopping at the Blue Goose before we headed for home.

It was a really nice weekend with great friends and good times!
