Getting there is half the fun so they say

We are in Norfork Virginia  5:00 PM
What can I say about quality inn wow. I didn't know they let working girls in here.
 Don't get me wrong I'm not against a  woman make a couple of bucks by freelancing
$60 a night the dogs stay free and no that's the price of the room she doesn't do dogs 
Well  if you like rain we definitely had it this morning
We left red roof inn about 7 o'clock and from that point to about 230pm it was raining on and off and some of it really heavy
So after that the sun came out and it was time to play
So we drove some more
I didn't get a photo of it but the lowest price of gasoline was 1,84$
As soon as  we crossed over into Virginia gas jumped up to 2,29$
As for tomorrow it will be the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel and Bridge (toll)
And pushing on word and Northword

We came across the ideal fixer-upper,, although I think you have to do is figure out how to make it waterproof.  But it does have some great potential and a lot of acreage.there is a second criteria You will need to know how to pick cotton but think of it being outdoors with nice weather.. And friendly neighbors
Or you could look at it another way the fire department has never lost a cellar  yet
One of the ironic things about going the back way and off the beaten path you really see
Interesting architect in the small towns and the way people live back in the 30s 40s and 50s as well of the 60s 70s and 80s and 90s
It's really not unusual to see a Old style cracker house with a porch everything is falling down around it and then you have a Doublewide 100 feet away
If you have the ability to think back to the 1700s One can get an appreciation for the modern conveniences like a diesel tractor combine. Opposed to a very bad back bending over picking you know what and I think how far apart some of the farms and plantations well  you certainly didn't go into town to get something that you forgot the first time it would probably be a two day trip
In all the traveling that I've done in and around the US states,, even so there's a lot of agriculture a Georgia South Carolina North Carolina Virginia and you still can't be the heartland of America Kansas Oklahoma Indiana Iowa  that to me is the true heartland of America,,, Even so I Marvel at the fact that farmland here on the East Coast produce and abundance array of products some crops not found anywhere in the United States but here
