Wednesday, August 8, 2012:  Wow, it's been a long time since I've blogged. It's been a busy 2 months of remodeling, considering we thought we'd only be there a couple of weeks! It did help that we were able to park on the street at Dean's and use his electricity. If not, we would not have been able to stay long. It's been a hot and humid 2 months. Curt worked every day except one afternoon basically, which we went shooting at their indoor shooting range. Valerie and I got to go to DC and Burke Lake and do some geocaching and waymarking. Also they took me to Wolf Trap National Park and we saw the Wizard of Oz on the big screen with the National Symphony Orchestra playing in the background. Otherwise I spent the time scanning papers, pictures, baking, cooking and spending time with 2 Bengal cats and a greyhound dog. They just got the greyhound in July, a retired racer. He had never been around cats, or in a house, let alone a split level house with steps to climb. The climbing up wasn't so bad, it's the going down he doesn't really like. But he's come a long way, and he and the cats get along fine now. They basically ignore each other. We were kind of leery in the beginning. And, of course, spending time with Dean, Valerie and Keith. Dean helped us put in our stereo and boosters for the wifi and cell.

We went south to Fredericksburg and then west towards Luray, VA. We stopped at the Chancellorsville Battlefield information center and watched a movie and decided to drive part of the battlefield route with stops for pictures. We thought maybe we'd stop at Sperryville before crossing over the Blue Ridge mountains to Luray, but couldn't find a place to stop, so we kept on going. Up and down, twists and turns. We stopped at Luray's Walmart and decided to eat supper and see if we can get the internet going. Of course, things never work the way they're suppose to, but I am on and able to blog, so that's good.

So, tomorrow, back to traveling the U.S. and seeing what's out there.
