Written Directions

Just west of Caldwell, OH off of I-77 Exit 25 towards McConnelsville, OH. (West of 77 is much better than East of 77.)

Scenery

There's lots of lush greenery and hills around. You'll pass by the 'Big Muskie Bucket' that they used for moving Earth back in the day.

Road Quality

No complaints, some on and off pavement switching and some loose gravel, but nothing to get in a twist over.

Roadside Amenities

There is only the Big Muskie Bucket tourist attraction, and judging from the lack of visitors it seems people can't be bothered. Other than than there's nothing along this route until McConnelsville.

Dude! Unless the camera angle is off, you have a habit of drifting across the center line on left-hand curves. Are you aware that your video#1 showed you doing that several times? Hope you get rid of that habit before you get a faceful of F-150 grill!

West of 77 to 555 is a great ride. McConnelsville has a great place to eat ( Wing Slingers ) and some of the best looking women in Ohio. This whole ride is a higher speed ride with alot of sweepers.

State Route 78 (SR 78) is a state highway that runs for 105 miles (169 km) from Nelsonville to Clarington in the U.S. state of Ohio. Car and Driver has called it one of the most scenic highways nationwide.[2] The stretch of this highway that runs along the south side of Burr Oak State Park in Morgan County, Ohio, is well known for its extreme curves and views, and is sometimes locally referred to as the "Rim of the World." Much of this highway runs through old coal-producing areas
