Aug 29, 2016 - Monday Morning Orientation

I started my orientation today and it will continue through to Friday. I have met another girl that will be working on my unit as a travel nurse. Her name is Pam and she's from Illinois. I was glad to know that I would be getting an orientation but it's kinda boring since I know most of the things they are going over. The drive is 45 minutes to and from so I have been getting up at 6 am to get to work by 8:30 am. The only way you can get to your job is by shuttle because everyone is assigned a parking area that is far from the UVA medical...

Aug 28, 2016 - Migraine Misery

So today is Sunday and I was going to spend the day resting and swimming in the pool but I ended up in the ME clinic with a migraine. I think that I've only had one migraine in my lifetime and this was so bad that I was throwing up. Just got to be better by tomorrow so I can start orientation for my new job.

Aug 27, 2016 - Arrival at Shenandoah Valley - Bluegreen Resort

I arrived at Shenandoah Valley Bluegreen Resort today. It is beautiful here with the mountains in the background. It is in rural Virginia with small towns surrounding. I will be working in Charlottesville, Virginia which is about 45 minutes away. I decided to stay here for the first week because mom is with me and I will be in orientation all week, so I wanted her to have a relaxing week. It took us about 12 hours to drive from Owensboro to here with stops for bathroom breaks and eating. I've included some pictures from the drive to capture...

Apr 29, 2011 - Gordonsville, VA (April 25-29, 2011)

And, on the road again. Willie serving us well, and Willie's songs keeping us going, although I can take only so much of "Willie's Place" on Sirius Radio. We're getting the itch to be back in Vermont, especially when we hear it's getting warmer, flowers are blooming, and bikers and golfers are out. Our next stop was Shenandoah Crossing Resort, near Gordonsville, VA. It's a very nice resort with a lodge, cabins, yurts, chalets, and their new addition, RV sites. It was an old horse farm, in the midst of beautiful horse farms; they still use...

Oct 2, 2010 - Gordonsville, VA

The end of September is here and I cannot hold Ralph back from the road any longer. September 26th – Left this morning for Gordonsville, Virginia which is about 435 miles from home. We are staying at the Shenandoah Crossing RV & Country Club Resort a Coast to Coast resort. This is the second time we’ve stayed here and we wrote extensively about this top shelf resort last year. Among the many amenities available they have an outdoor RC auto course which we were able to utilize this time. It seems we got on the road too soon as most of this...

May 11, 2010 - The Exchange Hotel -- Gordonsville, VA

While staying at the Small Country campground we took a day trip to Gordonsville, VA and toured the Exchange Hotel. The Exchange Hotel was the place to stay while changing trains during the early days of rail travel. During the Civil War the Exchange Hotel was used as a hospital to treat the wounded Confederate soldiers. There were several displays of Chelsie the cat, who is the symbol the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, and some of the advertising the C & O used.

May 6, 2010 - Shenandoah Crossings

After driving 300+ miles and sleeping in a parking lot in Lumberton, NC, I drove another 300 miles to this resort, which I paid for with points from the club I belong to. The first site I was given is on a slope steep enough that just using my jacks didn't get it level, so I had to raise up that side of the coach by driving onto boards and using planks under the jacks. Then I needed two steps in order to enter my home! I said something to the security guard, she called the front desk, and I was able to move to a more level spot in that same...

Oct 16, 2009 - A Weekend in Virginia

Well, the weather was not what we were hoping for. Our plans were to horseback ride and play golf, but with dreary, cold days, it seemed better to change our plans. Friday, we took a ride to Charlotte, Virginia and found a beautiful colonial city that has the University of Virginia and a courthouse where Jefferson, Madison and Monroe were lawyers. We also found some great shops to browse through and had a fun day exploring. Saturday, although it was not raining, we still didn't want to do much outside due to the cold. So we headed to the...

Oct 15, 2009 - Traveling south to Virginia

We woke up to rain and cold. It seems like we went from Autumn to winter in a day. We walked Duke and packed up and we were on our way south, however, the weather wasn't any better there. In fact, it got colder! But at least we're headed in the right direction....south. We left Pennsylvania and drove through Maryland and then West Virginia. Since we'd never been to West Virginia, this was exciting, as we can now add it to our map that we have on the RV showing all the states where we’ve traveled. Both Maryland and West Virginia were very...

Oct 6, 2009 - Shenandoah Mountains

We went for a drive along Skyline Drive which takes you through the Shenandoah Mountains. The views are spectacular full of fall colors and great views of the valley below. Shenandoah National Park has over 500 miles of trails. Over 30% of the trails are in designated wilderness. 101 miles are part of the Appalachian Trail. We stopped and had a picnic along the drive and it was really pretty all through the area. The Shenandoah National Park has quite the history behind it. On July 7, 1925 the Shenandoah National Park Association,...

Oct 4, 2009 - New Trip -1st stop Gordonsville, Virginia

Shenandoah Crossing in Gordonsville, Virginia - (9/27 – 10/04/2009) We started our fall trip on Sunday 9/27 and we will be back home in Honeoye by 11/04 for our doctor’s appointments. We hope to leave for our winter trip in late December. Our first stop was at the Shenandoah Crossing RV Resort in Gordonsville, VA. Our first time here and in our experience of RV Parks all over the country, this is clearly the best Coast to Coast resort in the system. This 1000 acre resort is a destination in itself. There is little to do and see close to the...
