It’s been a busy week! We left Kentucky and drove to Beckley, WV where one of my best friends from college met us. When we realized we were going to be only about four hours away from her, she made plans to come take advantage of our guest room and hang out with us for the weekend. The city of Beckley has a small campground right next door to the Expedition Coal Mine which we were able to tour. It was very interesting, and I would recommend it if you’re ever in the area.
Although we hit some pretty dense patches of fog, the drive from West Virginia to Virginia was beautiful through the mountains. We also got to stop and have lunch with some of Jeff’s friends from high-school, and he was able to drive their Slingshot, which he loved!
We are very thankful for our RV Garmin, but sometimes it gives us some very strange routing information. Here’s a picture of the dirt road that it wanted us to take into the campground in Colonial Beach, VA. What was super weird is that there was a nice fully-paved road one block over (we did take the paved route.)
We spent the next couple of days working and having lunch with some other full-time RV friends who we met at the RV Entrepreneur Summit back in February. We have been very blessed to meet up with so many friends and family along the way. We didn’t end up visiting any of the many historical sites in the area since we will be back here again at the end of August.
After 3 days in Virginia, we moved farther east to Martinak State Park in Maryland for a couple of days. While I ran to the grocery store and stocked up, Jeff loved hanging out in the hammock.
