New River Bridge WV Camping

Tuesday, September 08, 2020

Went camping over the holiday weekend with my sister (Robin), brother-in-law (Bill), nephew (Tony) and some of his friends, and great nephew (Breck) to the New River Bridge area in WV.
Robin, Bill, and I elected to go hiking. My sister said she'd never white water raft again cos both times she's gone she fell out of raft. I decided my neck and shoulder are not up to rafting yet, but perhaps by next year I can go again. I've only been rafting once. Tony and his friends have been numerous times but they did the easy rafting cos Breck and 3 other young children had never been.

Robin, Bill, and I did the bridge overlook hike and also went to Nuttalburg Coal Mine tipple. We didn't go to the actual mine cos one of the warnings for the hike to the mine was very steep and my sister wouldn't be able to do it because of her back.

Overall a good weekend. Air mattress Robin & Bill were using got a leak first night so in middle of night I used it and they used the other one. Once we switched places they were out like a light and so was I because first 4 hours I tossed and turned. 2nd night I was only up once and that's when my sister woke up.
