Mountains Kick My Butt

From a couch in Jed’s house, Blacksburg, VA

Taking a rest day. Blacksburg is surrounded by mountains (I thought this is why I was skipping around West Virginia!) I guess living in Virginia for four years, I should know this. Oh well. Katherine was kind enough to put me in contact with her friend Jed, who was kind enough to let me stay at his place for two nights as my legs get a rest. Anyway, here are some pictures of the last couple days.

Natural Bridge in Natural Bridge, VA. 200 ft tall. Massive. Cody who works there gave me a free ticket. Continue to be amazed by the kindness of strangers.

the Natural Bridge.

History made awesome.

Timed shot. Tricky.

Countless farms.

  4. “Supposedly . . . George Washington climbed 25ft up and carved his initials.” Sounds like a great drunk history to me. We’ll have to add it to our list 🙂

      which you still haven’t done! not fully, anyway. I say you do a drunk history blog post!


  5. Great job! We need all the help raising money for AFTD that we can get. I just found your blog and plan to share it. I lost my 31 yr old daughter Julie to FTD 10-09. We live in Florence Ky which is 9 miles south of Cincinnati. Please contact us if we can help you in your travels 🙂

      Thank you, Joy! I appreciate you sharing my blog to spread awareness and fundraising for AFTD. I just arrived at my Dad’s house in Mason, OH, so I’ll be here for a few days resting and planning, then take off for the next leg of the journey. Thanks again for your support!
