I had walked 65 miles over about 7 weeks when all my efforts were erased. The site I was using closed down! I was disappointed and floundering for a bit, trying to figure out what to do. After searching the internet for a new site to chart ... Read more

Well, I passed the Chickahominy River and am now on my way to Charles City, VA. Since I have about 7 miles to go to get there, I figured I would read up on this interesting place. It is small - at the 2010 census, there were 133 residents in the... Read more

Thankfully the weather has broken and the long icy winter is almost history. I say almost because that old March winter lion could easily gobble up the March lamb at any time. We've even had snow for Mother's Day here. Oh well. That won't... Read more
