Update From Virginia
6/28/12 Although we have been in North Carolina for the past few weeks and have been doing lots of fun things, we have not had much time to write or post about our activities! Now we have moved north to Virginia and are parked at a very nice Elks Lodge in Waynesboro, which is located at the southern end of the Shenandoah Valley. There are even 2 – 30 amp electrical plugs here which will be nice in the next few days because more hot weather is supposed to arrive and we need 30 amps to run our air conditioner. Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, is in this area but we visited it 3 years ago, so we will skip it this time. Instead we are going tomorrow to Montpelier, the estate of James and Dolley Madison. Additionally, there are many wineries in this area and some of the better ones are near that estate. So we will have to see if we have time to do that after our tours tomorrow. While we were in North Carolina, we visited friends and saw some of the sights in 3 locations: Asheville, Greensboro, and the Outer Banks. I have lots of pictures and will be writing some blogs about those places in the next few days. So check back here in a few days and maybe there will be some interesting travel reports!
