The Post travels to West Virginia


_n-post-travels-west-virginia-reedfcSteve and Judy Reed, of Cedar Springs, traveled to Summerville, West Virginia over Labor Day weekend with their grandson, Landon Prater, 11, and Steve’s sister, Sandy Martin, to move her back home. While there they visited some of the sites around the area, including the Summerville Reservoir, the Gauley River National Recreation Area, and the famous New River Gorge and New River Gorge Bridge, which is also part of the National Park Service.

The New River Gorge Bridge is the longest steel span in the western hemisphere and the third highest in the United States. Previous to the bridge being built in 1977, it took 40 minutes to get across the gorge in the Appalachian Mountains, and the only way was by traveling a pretty scary long, narrow, winding road down one side and back up the other. The Reeds took that road, but don’t think they would like to do it again! It now takes less than a minute to get across the gorge with the bridge.

While the Post can now be read online all over the world, the printed edition traveled all over the world as well—thanks to loyal readers taking it on vacation with them! The Post visited a variety of locations in all parts of the world and sometimes more than once.

One of our favorites was the Post visiting Afghanistan. We received a request for a Post from one of our soldiers there—Spc. David Segard. When it arrived, he gathered his unit for a photo with the paper and emailed it back to us!

Other locations the Post visited this year included Costa Rica, the Denver Zoo, Hawaii, Arizona, Sacramento, Harvard, the Grand Canyon, Mexico, Frankenmuth, Georgia, Colorado, Kansas, Texas, Alaska, Cave City, Las Vegas, Berlin, Minnesota, Niagara Falls, Ireland, Chattanooga, Boston, Spain, Yellowstone, the Indy 500, Stonehenge, British Columbia, Canada, Cambodia, Branson, North Carolina, Virginia, Outer Banks, Florida, Disney World, Australia, and Hoover Dam.
