16C --J u ne 2. 1974 Sunday (Gazette-Mail White Water Racing Exciting Early morning mist arisingf rom farm pond provides scene of mysterious beauty. ··' - flTTi ' -" -''. our Whims Wandering Paths Lead to Delights By H.C, Gadd vacation-wise West Virginians refuse to plan in advance for their holidays, whether it's a long weekend or a full month. !vThey simply pack some fun clothes, their particular fun tools, get a road map, draw out-'Jsome contingency funds, pile into the family transportation, and go looking for roads they haven't traveled in West Virginia. .The idea has much to recommend it. ·The blessed thing about WeM Virginia is that it has a Ibt^of neon scenery that still hasn't been ruined with neon lights. The state is laced and interlaced with little-used roads that lead to hundreds of delightful surprises. ' ~f. ' f'When you're hungry, stop at a";;iikely-looking restaurant. Or,' if you like to picnic, stop ata country store -- and there arje still lots of them around tjie; Mountain State -- to pick up the fixin's. When evening comes, you're never more than a few miles from a place to find lodging for the night. The modern innkeeper runs a mo- tel, but he knows his area completely and he can steer you to fine places to visit you would never hear about otherwise. He also knows a lot of history that hasn't been written yet, or is lost in some long-forgotten publication. Take your time. Drive slowly. You'll see more, and it is also safer and takes less gasoline. When you haven't pre- picked a destination that you must reach by a pre-set time, you can investigate old mills and likely streams, covered bridges, historic grounds, winding woodland trails, fascinating little shops, 'Stores, churches. If you get lost, or take the wrong road -- who cares? The r o a d y o u ' r e o n m a y h a v e things much more interesting than what you were looking for, anyway. And, you can always go back some other time and have a shot at the road you meant to take. My favorite fun tool is a camera, but yours may be golf clubs, fishing tackle, tennis racquets, a swim suit, bicycle-, hiking boots, or a canoe. Whatever your favorite pas- time, you won't get bored on a wandering West Virginia vacation. There is always something new just around the next curve in the road. And, unlesss you let yourself go hog-wild in some of the fascinating little shops, you'll be surprised how much of your contingency fund you bring back home.

The Wildwater Race and Slalom are sanctioned by the American Canoe Assn. The 15-mile race course is on the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac, completely within the area recent- ly designated as the Spruce Knob-Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area. This water is Class 1I-IV difficulty, considered to be one of the most challenging eastern White Water streams. The Cruising Class Race will have the traditional race start at Mouth of Seneca at the junction of Routes 33, 4 and 28, ending at the Grant- Pendleton line (Dolly Camp Grounds). This course closely parallels Routes 4 and 28, and spectators can view the race from the highway or from strategically located vantage points. The Middle States Wildwa- ter Championship course has been shortened to a five-mile distance between Dolly Camp Grounds and the Smoke Hole C a v e r n s . There w i l l be a morning race for two classes of boats and an afternoon race for three classes of boats over this distance, in addition to an exhibition team race in which teams made up of three boats in one class, compete against other like teams.
