Geo: 37.4049, -79.1553Editor's NOTE: Normally Glenn proof-read's my blog and does some major editing, however I am not asking him to do this for me, since he needs a break. So bear with me if there are misspelled words and the grammar is incorrect. Thanks for reading.After a delightful breakfast with Bobbie and John, we loaded up the RAV 4 and drove back into Lynchburg. We had several hours to kill. Glenn needed to get some gas. So while he filled up the tank at Kroger's, I went into the grocery store and got some lettuce and cheese for our upcoming Virginia Ham Sandwich.We also had time to do a letterbox. This one was in an old cemetery where John and Sarah Lynch are buried. They are the founding fathers of this city. The town was ... read more

i spotted a werewolf. i spotted a werewolf. it was just dusk on a dreary evening and the air was dead still but sticky from the days heat and afternoon shower. i was walking East towards home on a sidewalk id traveled many a times. it was a bumpy section of concrete pathway, the kind you get when century old oak trees heave their roots upward. there was a dilapidated rock-wall on my left that lead to an overgrown yard with knee high grass and shrubs hiding the windows of the moldy white house. there was a dim light on in the upstairs window and a shadow passed. i thought it odd because id never seen a car in the driveway or any signs of someone living there but i turned my gaze back in front ... read more

Continuing our journey up the Blue Ridge Parkway - we've been driving North about 40 miles a day and hiking/camping along the way. We're in Lynchburg VA at the moment...not sure how the town got its name but im watching my neck. Rainy morning and it looks like it will continue to be a rainy day. Our hope was to explore and hike another section today but its 11am and we're hanging out in the screen house (*with rain proof walls). No immediate rush to move on, i think this will turn into a driving day which means we're getting even closer to home which means the trip is even closer to coming to an end, boohoo. the last few days we did some good hikes with great weather. One was a 11 mile trek that ... read more

Well have to say this is a first for me, work with computers all day long but spend all my time behind the sceens keeping things running so with this blog I guess I'll have to learn about this side of things. We're setting up this blog to keep a journal of our travels back to China. This will be our second trip, going to get our 2 new daughters. This will be Jasmine's first time back to China. It's been a long time since she was there, not sure how much she will remember since she was so young when we first left there but this will be a great chance for her to she her roots. So, were getting closer to our travel date. We just got our I-797's a few days ago. In ... read more
