Grand Time in West Virginia

We left Pennsylvania and traveled to West Virginia to spend a few days with Chucks sister and her husband Jim. We decided to leave the "damnearahouse" in Harrisonburg at their son's house. The 45 miles to their home is either up hill or down hill and both are extreme. Both of which are enough to make me a nervous wreck just driving/riding over it. And the locals who drive it all the time sort of think of it as the grand prix, man, they can fly.

Chucks sister, Anna Mae, was in a play that made it's debut while we were there, and it was absolutely wonderful. We laughed till we hurt, and the scene that Anna Mae had where she had accidentally taken heavy duty pain killers by mistake, was so hilarious, I had tears running down my face. And they even managed to bring Elvis into the play and it made sense.
Elvis lives!

There also was the Treasure Mountain festival going on, with crafts and a quilt show. And of course lots of food......fried oreos were one of the things spotted, not the least bit tempting. We spent most nights talking and getting caught up on all that has happened over the years. Anna Mae has just retired and is getting used to the life of ease.

We left there, drove back to Harrrisonburg and spent the night in the 5er and were ready to roll by 8 the next morning. Drove about 300 miles and spent the night in the "Lone Dog Campground". Sounds bad, but was actually quite nice. Finished the drive today and we are settled in at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. Chuck was getting kind of shakey, what with no golf for over 2 weeks, and they have 2 courses here. Also the Air Force museum and it is suppose to be very nice. They have the Air Force Ones of Kennedy and Reagan on display. We used the time today to wash the 5er and do laundry. Hit quite a bit of rain off and on, so glad that we could wash it.

Not sure when we are leaving here to head for the fairgrounds, where Nick's Rally is being held, probably Thursday or Friday. It is only about a 100 miles, so not a hard drive.
