This morning was a leisure break in camp. No hurry because we only plan on traveling 2-300 miles today.
The coach is out from under her cover and Sherry is backing it in place for me to hook it up for towing.
I tell you, when a person dies (or leaves) the body ain’t cold before someone wants your parking spot. Mark has already backed his truck under the carport
Saying good by to his mama. Shirl also came over but I did not have camera in hand. She brought some bugs (off her squash) and some jokes. for our traveling entertainment.
I have made a spot for Stella’s entertainment stuff: Clicking lawnmower, red wagon, bike and her Disney characters. She will be living here when we pass back thru headed for Florida. (To the left is Luke’s Studio efficiency)
Car is ready to tow. all umbilical's loose, step in, Antenna down…..
And we are on the road….My captain Bear and Sailor jack leading the way on the dash.
I bought cherries for the trip. I love cherries in season, and they are easy to eat as you drive.
Leaving NC on I-77 into Virginia some great valley views.
As always scanning for a great view or a classic car. Barns are also a ‘thing’ of mine. I love rustic or distinctly different ones.
Looking down at another bridge over the New River.
All of a sudden the traffic came to a crawl So I had a chance to snap a dam I had never seen traveling this road.
Below is the point where we crossed under I-77 to get get over to the Shenandoah's. If you look closely you will see a white blaze on the telephone pole in the center. The white blaze marks the AT.
Oh the hold up for about 15 miles we traveled at less than 10mph. Here is the blockage.
Those look like chicken cages, but they were for turkeys. Evidently the driver lost control they had brought in a crane to try to right things. I hate to see these things, you know a lot of folks days are ruined. Just hope there were no one injured badly.
We drove only 250 miles, coming to rest in Lexington, VA. Home of The Virginia Military Institute.
There was definitely time to relax at 5 mph. This is our home for the night.
As I have said before, there are NO bad views or ‘uninteresting’ drives. We love them all whether plains, desert, coastal or mountains, there is always ‘that’ part of the trip that says, man this is it.
We consider every trip an adventure, so this trip to the northeast is one more.
Thanks for coming along with us, I love the company.
Although we have traveled these same roads many times, the NC and VA mountains are always a thrill.
We enjoyed one of these, except ours was pink (or earth) and white. Also a great family car.
We were passed by Hendricks racing team. I could have taken them easily, but I did not want to show off, they might need another driver soon.
