    Took the Ram on a road trip to Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National park. Its 109 miles on top of the mountain and follows part of the Appalachian Trail too. It is 142 miles from my house to the north entrance at Front Royal, Virginia. Kind of cold and in the 40's.

    It was an excellent ride. Very comfortable and had plenty of power if I needed it. About 19 mpg.

    It was cold in the 40's on top of the mountain. I'm home now and it's in the 80's. Lol

    When I was a miniature child growing up in Chesapeake ( Great Bridge) we used to go there
    every once in a while in the summer months... Was always a very beautiful place...
    We also hit up the caverns while there.... Quite the sight to see...
