Vacation Day 5 – Moving Day. We left the southern portion of the George Washington National Forest and headed north and into West Virginia. Just after setting up camp and eating a thunderstorm hit us, everyone hid in their camps, Sam, Deb and I played cards when the rain and wind stopped suddenly, the pressure changed and the rain fly was trying to lift straight up off the tent? Very strange…. oh yeah, Sam won several games of Crazy 8 in a row!

Camping with Beth and Jim mean you do things like, I wonder if this leads to a overlook as we bush wack through head high brush.

and saying goodbye to Steph…. twice.

We dropped her off at Charlotte and drove away, we had checked the flight during lunch and all was good… then to find out a 2 hour delay in Charlotte meant she would miss her connection and no hope of a later flight, so we turned around and drove her to Greensboro, and a later flight, but hopefully she gets home tonight!
