Comments: Hillbilly Hotdogs is one of the favorite destinations of FlyBy Week attendees. If you've never been there, you HAVE to go! You want to get there as soon after about 11AM as possible, especially if you go on Saturday. Norm recommends going earlier in the week- It gets CROWDED after about 11:30AM, especially on Saturdays.

The
Hillbilly Tech Pt1 156 route to Hillbilly Hotdogs is the most challenging in the FlyBy Week library. It uses many little-known back roads with sharp curves and elevation changes. Some of the county roads are not very well-maintained, so pavement can be a bit lumpy in places. You will see a lot of very remote countryside and variety. To hit the 11-11:30am arrival window at Hillbilly Hotdogs you need to leave by 8am, maintain a good pace and not linger too long at the midway gas stop.

After lunch, load up the
Hillbilly Tech Pt2 128 route for the return trip. You'll enjoy a nice pace and sweepers until you hit I77.

Suggestion: If you are tired, just continue on I77 back to the hotel. OTOH, if you have some energy left, just follow the route off I77 at Rockport and hit some more twisties!

26 RVess Special 220 Ver. 06/08 MAP PDF GPX
RouteType:
CURVY
Navigation difficulty: AVERAGE
Distance: 220 miles
Lunch Stop: Sakura Family Restaurant, Bellaire, OH
Direction from Marietta: NE, CLOCKWISE
Comments: Regular attendees of FlyBy Week all know Ron Vess, who helps with the outdoor lounge and other details of our event. Ron lives nearby and grew up here so he knows all the roads and just about everything that goes on in the area. He developed this fun route that uses some "new" roads. The Southeastern part of Ohio has seen extensive oil and gas drilling and pipelines over the past few years, and to get the equipment and materials in and out, they paved and improved some of the gravel roads in the area. The work is mostly done now and we have some new curvy roads with great views and perfect pavement. Ron's route provides quite a tour!

The route begins on OH26 but quickly diverts to twisty backroads including Dalzell road, bits of 565, 537, 800, 556, on to the lunch stop in Bellaire, OH. The Sakura Family Restuarant features Asian food, but has a good variety of salads, sandwiches and entrees available. I had the fish sandwich and it was to die for.

After lunch, the route takes you on German Ridge road, 556, Sykes Ridge, and a bunch of other county roads before bringing you back to the hotel. Don't miss this one!
