Off to the races maybe (horse races)

Anyone want to do a trip to Charlestown to the race track, they just redid all the casino's and added a bunch of stuff, not just slots now. The have possibly the best buffet lunch I have ever seen there on Saturdays, and there is horse racing as well as abundant nakididity in West Virginia. No date in mind just throwing it out there.

You must be 21 years or older to enter the casino. Minors under the age of 21 are not permitted to dine at the Epic Buffet, Food Court, and SunDance Grill.

Yes it is, that was last years High Country run that we do every Labor Day weekend now. That particular picture is of the Linn Cove Viaduct which was the last section of the parkway to be built. It has a fascinating story of how it was built. KY's son climbed up on the side of the mountain and we would all drive slow through the viaduct to get a shot without other cars in the picture. Here is what it looks like from below.

Riding across that on a motorcycle is just a bit unnerving, try scary as hell! When we went across is was a cloudy day and we were above the clouds, it was VERY cool.

Smartin and I sort of ended up at Charles Town races last Saturday, figured we might as well do some recon. The place is VERY nice, it's not Las Vegas but I liked it better than Atlantic Chitty. Lots of options, every kind of slot imaginable. A poker room, black jack, baccarat, roulette, and of course horse races. We had the dinner buffet, it's $21.95 started at 4, lunch is $15.95. The Saturday dinner buffet is a Prime Rib/Seafood extravaganza. I was well worth the price, food was very good hot and fresh. The deserts are insane, way to many choices. I had two different kinds of creme brulle' strawberry short cake and a chocolate eclair, as well as rice crispy treats dipped in the chocolate fountain.

What a great run and a great day!

Thanks, lil goat!

This is the proposed route out to Charles Town, we can meet in Aldie, easy to get to from 66 and then cruise out from there.

We could go here on the way
