Road Trip!

Long trip…
Great friends & relatives…
Too much good/great/delicious food…

Oh my god, we were exhausted when we got back!

We left on Thursday, October 9th and returned on Monday, October 27th. We traveled (Moffett’s calculating – may take a minute) 2,613 miles. (Yes, you know who keeps records of our odometer on any trip.)

We went to: Culpeper, VA – Front Royal, VA – Richmond, VA – Staunton, VA – Nags Head, NC – Williamsburg, VA

We stayed with friends and we stayed at a few hotels. Our current favorite hotel is Hampton Inn. Love the beds, and the breakfasts are usually pretty good!

We brought back: Dukes Mayonnaise, Virginia Gentleman Bourbon, Hubs Peanuts – None of which are available in New Hampshire.

We left at Autumn’s “PEAK” in NH and traveled through gorgeous fall beauty in most states. Damn roses are still blooming in North Carolina.

We traveled through more traffic than we’re used to seeing/sitting in at all up here in the woods.

According to the GPS, we were supposed to arrive in Culpeper around 4 or so – didn’t happen. Got there after 7 due to sitting on 95, the beltway and many other roads. On the way back we spent much time on the NJ Turnpike, another of our least favorite roads. Oh well.

    Had so much fun with you, Moffett and the Sig Ep crowd at Nags Head. Our girl’s trip to Williamsburg is always fun. The calm before the storm was wonderful. Can’t wait to do it all again !

    Ernie and I were upset that we could not attend, but in today’s mail a cd full of photo’s from Dick and Lorraine…everyone looks wonderful ! I know your trip, less the traffic jams, had to be beautiful this time of the year….God’s color palette. You really had a journey, but know it had to be nice to be back home…always a beautiful ending to a wonderful trip, to open your own front door. Colleen your photo’s are always so nice.
    Love you Colleen and Moffett Edwin
