Hi Jenny and Ian,
Sounds divine to be heading South for SIX weeks! Sounds like you are heading down I-81 through the Shenandoah Valley (one of the prettiest places around). It starts in Winchester, and ends about Roanoke, but the road all the way to Bristol, TN is great (except the Semi's, they're a pain). Are you stopping along the way, lots of great things to see as you work your way South. If you'd like some suggestions, let me know. Wish we could follow you : - )
I'll speak to the snow maker and ask for mercy on you concerning the winter precip. It's beautiful here now! Will there be any more of that stuff? Well, who snows

Re: Escape to Bay View -- Ladybug's Maiden Voyage!

Thanks guys. We are stopping near Winchester to visit Ian's sister then heading down to Ocala FL. We camp in National Forests because they are so cheap with the geezer pass, so have bookmarked a number of possibilities. We are trying to keep this trip loose without too many deadlines, so it's all going to be a surprise! We might be going to Williamsburg on the way back, then to Assateague. The plan is to find some migrating birds and other wildlife.
Wish we could meet you Hokie Escape and Al. It's always fun to meet up with other Escapees. Isn't it great that there are getting to be so many more of us on this side of the planet!? Maybe sometime - one of these years? - we can organize a rally together?

Re: Escape to Bay View -- Ladybug's Maiden Voyage!

Well, 2 things I'd definitely recommend after Winchester.
- Luray Caverns (right off I-81): Maybe the most beautiful caverns in the world
- Blue Ridge Parkway: Get on where I-64 crosses it close to Waynesboro, and get off at Rt460 before Roanoke. Just a beautiful section, and nice days drive. You can camp at Peaks of Otter campground (on the Parkway, no hookups but they have a dump), take a trip up Sharp Top Mtn, and then on to where ever. But, I'll warn you, the Parkway is so beautiful, you'll probably want to keep on, keeping on : - ) We're about 1 hour from the Roanoke exit from the Parkway.

We were both just talking about that. If only it wasn't so far or we'd be at the rally for sure! You guys will have so much fun. We will be thinking about you all!

And thank you so much for this great advice. You never know, we might just want to keep on, keeping on!!!
