It's been a week since I left LA. I arrived in Bristol on Monday night and have explored the entire panhandle region. It's similar to West Virginia state, but the people seem nicer, the roads more developed, etc. Maybe I'm just a bit more seasoned of a traveler these days and I'm not noticing certain things.
