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.

Drive Enjoyment

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

Tourism Opportunities

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.
