Day 103 September 20, 2014
Hagerstown, MD to Luray, VA
Today we arrived in my old home state of Virginia. When Rt 81 met up with Rt 66, we detoured to take a ride on Skyline Drive. It was quite nostalgic for me, as I’d driven this scenic road so many times before.
By late afternoon we pulled into the driveway at our friend Jim’s house in Luray. The three of us went out to dinner, and then returned to his house. The night became magical, as we sat around the fire pit on the front porch, and gazed at the zillions of stars in the dark sky.
And finally, we retired to the Space Shuttle. We were parked in Jim’s driveway, which was nowhere near being a flat surface. We’d be sleeping at quite an angle, about 10% or so, but it didn’t seem like it’d be too much of a problem since our heads would be higher than our feet. The biggest issue was that we were so sloped, that it took some control to stand up and walk around. It was, however, manageable, as long as you kept your grippy sneakers on. But when I removed my shoes and was trying to navigate in my slippery socks…bwaaahhhh…a whole other story! So, as quickly as possible, we climbed into bed, and just stayed put until the morning.
