Day 2: Staunton, VA

Before getting on the road we checked out Wegmans, a few minutes from the hotel.

It was a beautiful sunny day.

We hoped this was a good omen. The forecast for Knoxville was “partly cloudy.”

The ride got off to a good start.

The traffic was terrible on I-81. Bumper to bumper for a few minutes then moving fine for a few miles. Really frustrating. This went on for over two hours! We were even thinking it was a traffic jam caused by people going to see the eclipse. We couldn’t find any news on the radio so the Missus rolled down her window and asked a truck driver rolling beside us. He told us there was an accident miles ahead. Thank goodness it was only an accident!

Finally got to the hotel after an eight hour drive! It was on top of a hill overlooking the town.


After checking in and settling in we went out for food. What else eh.
