I got back onto I-77 a few miles north of where the huge accident happened at the NC-Va. border yesterday. Three people were killed on many taken to the hospital after a multi-vehicle pileup caused by dense fog. The stretch here is an 8 mile decline/incline with fog warning signs. I encountered that fog on one trip and believe me, that is some intense fog. I can easily imagine a bad accident happening here.
Gas in Wytheville was $3.40 ($3.44 in Galax).
The whole way today on I-77, I saw a whole lot of Ontario cars heading north and home. I don't know if they were coming back from spring break or winter snowbirding.One of them had a Canadian flag flying from the window.
Saw a sign for the Appalachian Bible College right by a billboard advertising: "Gentleman's Club, Totally Nude, Full Bar." Kind of an interesting pairing.
I went by where the rock slide took place on my way down at MM-3 in West Virginia. It was now open and all rocks off the pavement, but the shoulder was closed. Wonder why? Saw a whole lot of RVs heading north.
Gas on the West Virgina Turnpike was $3.70. Got off I-77 at Ripley and again took US-33 northwest to Columbus, Ohio.
