    One of the potential attendees put a caveat on his RSVP "as long as it doesn't snow" or something along those lines.

    Our previous location in Davis did have snow a few times so it was a real concern but the geography of North Bend SP and Davis are quite different. North Bend is close to the Ohio River so that helps moderate temps plus the altitude at the park is only 856 ft. Davis is nestled in the mountains which often have their own weather systems and the altitude is 3100 ft. We've had a crazy previous 12-months for weather so there are no guarantees but it seems unlikely that we'll have snow at North Bend.

    We're now up to 10+ in the RSVPs so the event in growing!

    For those of you coming from the east to North Bend SP, you can take US 50 all the way across WV and northern VA. If previously you took US 50 to get to Davis from the DC area, it's another 2 hours west but on a good road. There is one tight section in the mountains with lots of curves and ups/downs so be careful there plus I've encountered logging trucks in that stretch! Anyhow, get off US 50 at WV 16 south, and from there it's about 8-miles to the park entrance.

    The town closest to the park is Harrisville but I'm not sure if they have a gas station so fill-up in Ellenboro where there is a big station. The station is north on WV 16 by about 1/4 mile and just off US 50.

    your route for those folks coming east inspired me to look how I will go from south. I-77 till Hwy 19 crosses first exit, then Hwy 16 all way to NB state park. got my scenic route

    WV 16 is a great motorcycle road, in either direction!
