Jun 8, 2008 - Lexington, VA

On to Lexington, VA and the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. There was a two-fold reason for stopping here. Don wanted to go to Appomattox and he has a friend from his Laramie, WY days that lives here. As it turns out, I have a cousin that just moved to the area too. She moved to Waynesboro where her daughter lives and about 30 minutes from our campground in Staunton (pronounced Stanton). She had moved less than a week before we got there. When I told her we would be in the area, she said to give her a call when we got there. I left a message...

Oct 23, 2006 - Blue Ridge Parkway

We moved on to Lexington, VA yesterday morning and found a tiny little campground that suits us just fine. We spent the afternoon exploring some back roads and found Goshen Pass. It was a beautiful road with a gorgeous small stream running next to it. It was so peaceful sitting and listening to the water. Since we had an early dinner, we stopped and got a pizza to bring back to the RV. That was a big treat for us. Today we explored the northern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The leaves were more than out this world. Every turn in the road...

May 15, 2006 - Virginia

Hi Folks, After we left Nashville we headed towards the Eastern part of Tennessee through the Smokey Mountains up into the Western part of Virginia. Virginia is very beautiful with its mountains and valleys. We headed up the Shenandoah Valley nestled between the Appalachian Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. This area was key to the Confederates during the Civil War. It was prime farm land and would provide food to the troops and civilians in the east. It was also a key route for the invasion of the northern territory in the 1864...

May 21, 2005 - The Acorn Inn, etc.

We have spent the last couple of days in a sort of pointless wandering near the Blue Ridge Parkway prior to heading to our PATC cabin. Thursday and Friday nights we spent at an inn called The Acorn Inn by Nellysford, VA. For whatever reason, our time here was particularly strange. The inn itself consists of an old farmhouse and stables, the latter having been converted to a group of rooms for lodging. Each bedroom is in one of the original horse stalls. There is also a very nice patio overlooking a field and a room called the "Uncommon...
