I'm beginning to plan for my 2005 vacation(s) now, and so far I have a couple of locales in mind. My trip times are pending a vacation schedule at my employer (we normally shut down for two weeks - that may not happen next year.)

So right now I'm planning for a couple of separate vacation weeks, and one of the places I'm considering is eastern West Virginia, though none of this is set in stone. After driving through (for the first time in five years) this past Summer, I was again struck with the awesome natural beauty of the place.

Anybody have any good intel on places to chow, sites to see, fun and interesting roads, etc? Good hiking information would be an asset, too.
