DAY 19: GALLIPOLIS, OH TO DAYTON, OH

We began our Nineteenth day in West Virginia along the Ohio River, near Huntington. Our first stop would be at this church with a clock tower. The clock tower is reminiscent of Big Ben in the U.K. We then continued on the highway and drove through a cool gorge. We met a nice, local lady and her baby. She was selling some of her handcrafted jewelry. We’ve made our way into Kentucky and we visited Neil Huffman VW in Louisville. The team gave us a warm welcome with a local camera crew and balloon decorations. We continued our travels and we crossed the Ohio River into Indiana. We came across three bridges and it was cool to see the different styles of construction. In Indiana, we made a stop at Clarksville VW. They met us in their festive Hawaiian shirts. The crew was having a Hawaii day at the dealership. There was a church we stopped by that had incredibly intricate architecture. Although smaller, it was similar to that of Notre Dame. The great people of Kings VW in Landen, OH were nice enough to meet with us after hours. We appreciate them waiting for us. We gave the I.D. 4 a car wash. Inside, there were all green lights and it looked really cool. We came across a nice mural in Hamilton. It depicts a mint green 1950’s Cadillac. It’s appropriate because Hamilton shares a manufacturing past with Cadillacs and from the late 1940s through 1988 produced bodies for the brand. Also, Hamilton bears a statue of Alexander Hamilton, of whom the town is named after. The statue is also interesting because Hamilton’s cape is actually an American flag. Because of this incredible statue and the other 40+ statues, Hamilton has become known as “The City of Sculpture”. We then met a guy with an electric bicycle. It was cool because it looked like an Indian style motorcycle. We took some photos near Dayton. The drone got some nice views close by the River.
