Here’s a look at the drive southbound from the Beckley, WV area. The drive starts in Beaver, and heads south on US 19 to Flat Top, where it joins Interstate 77, the West Virginia Turnpike, to continue south. I took a detour off the Interstate into Athens to seek out an old family property, then returned to I-77 for the drive south to East River Mountain, and the VA/WV Border.

I made this trip in August-September 2017. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras – one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).
