Southbound from PA

Thursday, Oct 11 we drove south on I-81 heading through the beautiful Shenandoah Valley.  This will be a place to return to on a future trip as there are many Civil War sites to visit and beautiful parks to see.  As we headed into Virginia we noted many people driving with their Hokie signs and found out that the mascot for Virginia Tech is a Hokie.  Colors are maroon and orange and represented by a turkey.  Lots of team spirit here especially after the sad campus massacre there in 2007 when 32 people were killed by one gunman. We planned to stay near Natural Bridge, VA but when we traveled off road to one RV park nearby found out we could not level our unit at all in any of their larger spots and since it is the end of the season for them they did not care.  So we pulled out and headed on.  As we drove on the route with Norman Garmin we were waved down by a man who warned us that this way contained a low overpass and we would have to back out about 3 miles.  Thank Heavens for good neighbors, we were able to back about 100 ft into and area and turn around then returned to 81 south and drove down to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park and had a great site parked on a level grassy area about 6 miles from Natural Bridge. Got there in time to set up, have a good dinner, wash off our awning, walk the dogs and rest up. And nice people!
