Day 01 | NJ to Charleston, WV
Today we left home base in New Jersey for West Virginia: Wild, Wonderful.
Neither of us had ever been before so it was definitely an adventurous day 1. We took 78 west to 81 and traveled through Pennsylvania and Maryland. Today was our longest traveling day at about 7.5 hours total. Overall, it was a great day. The views were beautiful and we could not have lucked out more with the weather.

Where We Stayed:
Charleston, WV - We DO NOT recommend staying at the Courtyard Marriott. The city itself though, was beautiful.
It was not very clean
It was wayyyy over priced for what you got
The building was being worked on at night, making it hard to sleep
Thanks for your continued support and prayers.
Tyler and I are so pumped to be on this journey and more than excited for you to come along with us!
Next stop... Nashville, TN!
Sending love always,
