The Road to Damascus 2007 - Part 2

Dateline Damascus, Virginia

Saturday, October 27, 2007 10:00 PM

I arrived in town about 30 minutes ago and parked at the Hiker/Biker shelter behind the Methodist Church. First order of business, drag my bedding in and claim a bunk, second? Find the bathroom and… well you know, third? Walk down to the Mexican Restaurant a block away from the shelter and get some chips and beer, fourth? Start typing. OK, now we are up to the present.

Lessons From The Road

  • Hairpin turns and winding roads are more fun without white knuckled, carsick passengers.
  • A Prairie Home Companion is one hour too long.
  • Garrison Keillor is his own biggest fan.
  • There's a difference between Hwy 220 and Hwy 221, about 45 minutes and some specatacular driving
  • The detour avoiding Hwy 58 is worth it.
  • The Crooked Road really is crooked.
  • Bring a relief driver next time.
  • Damascus is a long ways from Richmond.
  • Mountain silhouetted sunsets last forever and after their gone the light lingers in the sky for another 30 minutes.
