not sure of the rates at any of the other places...but i know the pocahontas is giving a discount for the ride, and will be the cheapest. (same as last ride)
route and plans havent been made yet...will probably be spring before i devote any time to plans. just wanted to get this thread up and posted for those that are wanting a definite date to put in for vacation time.
friday evening at 7, for the people that arrive early there will be a buffet style dinner at the pizza factory in welch. the cost will be per person. if you get here before 7 on friday and would like to attend the dinner, please let me know...the restaurant needs a pretty accurate head count to prepare for the size of the group.

Welch, WV 24801
both saturday and sunday mornings we will meet at the sterling drive in for breakfast at 8am. about 9:30 or 10 we will leave out and head on the days route plan. this cost will be whatever you order for yourself.
STERLING DRIVE IN
788 Stewart Street
Welch, WV 24801
saturday after the ride in davy, there will be a cookout with food supplied by myself and my family...and the grilling will be done by some friends in a mission group from savannah, ga. this meal is at no cost to anyone (although donations are very welcome to offset the costs of feeding such a large group).
there will also be a drawing for several door prizes that were donated by several companies during the cookout.
sunday after the ride, we will be eating at hillbilly hotdogs...and the cost there will be for whatever you eat. i have a menu, and we are going to try and have everyone choose what they want the morning of the ride and i will call the order in so they can get a jump on the group...that way we wont have to wait so long for our food. i have a menu i can email, and i think they also have one on their website as well.

as many on here know already (but for the newer members that dont)...the background on this ride is simply my way of thanking everyone for the help that was extended to myself and my family back on christmas eve of 2009 when our home burned down. if it werent for the help of the vtxoa, the vtxcafe and a couple of other great sites, my family would still be having a difficult time recovering. anyway, i would like to thank everyone here at the vtxoa once again...and extend an invitation to everyone for the ride here in july. hope some of you can make it...
also, i would like to offer an open invitation to anyone traveling in this area needing or wanting a place to stay or a "guided tour" of the wonderful roads in the southern wv mountains...you are more than welcome to stay here. just let me know...always a place to stay here
