Thurmond, WV postcard mailed 1983. Captioned: Thurmond, West Virginia. Located on the New River Gorge National River in Fayette County, Thurmond was once known as the "Dodge City of the East." Thurmond is visited b thousands of white-wate
r rafters each year who enjoy rafting the oldeest river in the world and the best rapids in the East.
On trip with the Goodings - his 4th, her 3rd & our 1st rafting excursion. Mild trip was today with rough rapids tomorrow but had good taste today. Really got soaked – glad to see the sun finally come out – have had lot of laughs & making pleasant memories. Hope someday to try the Deschutes w/ you. The Hortons are leaving 6/2/83 for L.W. The year is going quickly & it is still wet. Hard to get any garden out - tho our strawberries look promising. Love, all the Uibles
