NC Bound Spring 2013: March 20th-- Through the Capital City

Now cruising through West Virginia and very pleased with finding better gas prices.  Tuned into Rock 107.3 for some good music.  Liked the welcome sign to the capital city "Welcome to Hip, Historic, Almost Heaven, Charleston W. Va".  Of course, always a highlight, that gold Capitol dome.

Once past downtown, we're running along the Kanawha River.  Always like the Moose Lodge right on that river.

Tuned into 95.3 FM, Charleston's Oldies Station and caught Creedence's "Fortunate Son."  CCR=Great Road Music. 

Once south of Charleston on I-77, you're on the West Virginia Turnpike which also has their own EZ Pass set up.  Wouldn't it be nice if all tollways in the U.S. would cooperate on one big Tollway E-Z Pass so you could use the transponder everywhere?  I guess that would, however, cut into the double profits they now charge non "Club" members.

Charging $3.72 on the turnpike, still cheaper than most of Ohio.
