The ATV visitation is considerably slower than last year...many area rentals with no bookings. We are getting a few each week, but not the two to three groups in each unit each week like in the past. The economy seems to have caught up with the ATV riding. Hope this is a short lived situation...got a bit on the line with this venture.

Our area is 180 degrees from the rest of the country. Country is bad...we are good. Country is good...we are bad.

we're the same PL it just takes a while for it to get to us Smile The only country wide thing that hits us quickly is gas prices. If the news says gas prices are gonna go up you cant get to a gas station quick enough to beat the price increases.

Hey GBob why is the gas in WV so high? Do you have high state taxes on gas?

On one trip to Man, I paid over $5 a gal for diesel . That was about 2 or 3 years ago.

Yeah DJ for once WV is not at the bottom of the list. We're 14th in the amount of tax on fuel according to this list Only slightly higher than the national average

I always noticed that gas is cheaper in Va and now I see why. On taxes alone they are 12 cents cheaper.

We tend to have some of the lowest prices here in the Valley. So anyplace I go it is usually up.
