It is a very interesting thing to drive somewhere and know that you will not drive back. One would think that I would have thought of this before we headed up 501 North and passed the Big Island Mill for the last time, but I hadn’t. And no matter how much I cannot stand that curvy, windy, mess of a road somehow when you think of it from the perspective of not knowing when you will be back it changes things. Did I shed a few tears? You bet.

So, if you ever find yourself in Lynchburg do me a favor: take a walk on “The Avenue,” head to the J. Crew clearance store for something snazzy, then grab a burger and a beer at The Cav. Oh, and don’t forget to wave to the King of Germany as you leave town.

So here’s to you, Lynchburg. It’s been fun.

    Hey where are you now? Fun to follow you along the way. How was Dimitri and Elieen?
