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.
