Jun 3, 2013 - Crozet, VA

Good news on the step. We called Dick Gore's today and they are sending the part we need to the campground in Maine. Hopefully that will do the trick and Clarence won't have to keep pulling the step in and out with a rope each time we stop. We camped in Crozet, Va. Turns out Claudius Crozet engineered four tunnels through the Blue Ridge Mountains during the decade before the civil war. It took 8 years to link east VA and West VA. Who knew?

Misty Mountain RV & Camp Resort This campground is decent and really close to everything. The sites are close together but pretty level. Monticello is the home of Thomas Jefferson and a beautiful place. We took a guided tour of the house and then wandered the property. The place is truly amazing with beautiful gardens, a great collection of Jefferson's inventions, and lots of history tosoak up. We had a great time just wandering and looking and could have spent more time but the heat was killer so we had to leave. Michie's Tavern was an old...

Oct 5, 2008 - Crozet/Charlottesville, VA

On Thursday, we drove from Virginia Beach, VA to Crozet/Charlottesville, VA. On the way, in the afternoon, we stopped in Williamsburg, VA … wow, what a cool place! We loved the restored (thank you Mr. Rockefeller) colonial district, the great downtown area, and the College of William & Mary campus. Plus we had a great meal at Blue Talon thanks to the recommendation from Brent and Lisa Mesquit. In Charlottesville, we enjoyed their downtown, pedestrian mall and the UVA campus. Also, we went for a nice run on their Rivanna Trail.

Sep 12, 2008 - Quantico, VA to Crozet, VA

You may be wondering "Where is Crozet, VA?" and why are they going there? Crozet, pronounced like the French name it is, with a silent "t", is about 15 miles west on I-64 from Charlottesville. We came here specifically to see Monticello, Ashlawn-Highlands, the Michie Tavern, and the historic part of the University of Virginia. And, of course, to do nothing at all, which is part of learning how to be retired and enjoy it! Driving around the area and seeing the beautiful farms and rolling hills, it is easy to see why Thomas Jefferson built...

Nov 4, 2007 - Monticello, VA.

Camped in Crozet (cro-zay) Virginia. Right outside of Charlottesville, Va. Tomorrow it's off to Thomas Jefferson's home (Monticello). Nearby is Woodrow Wilson's birthplace & Presidential library. Kath wants to see that. In Lexington is Stonewall Jackson's house, grave & musuem on the campus of VMI. So, we're here for a day or two at least. No more pics put onto discs yet. We're 12 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, som it's easy to see why this RV park is called Misty Mountain. Going down to 35 degrees tonight. Ah- anti-freeze. Stay warm...
