Going down to Dixie

I am in Waynesboro, Virginia having driven down from Toronto over the last two and a half days. Left Dubois, PA, yesterday morning and drove through Maryland, and a short run through West Virginia to reach Virginia mid-afternoon. Wrong slotted on the road to Luray after stop in Front Royal. Marvelous old high-level steel railroad bridges. Finally found the mountain road. Saw a black bear, turkey vulture and numerous deer on the trail. Last night at Big Meadows lodge on the Skyline Drive - great view of the Shenandoah Valley and good value at $80 for a double with no TV or phone to bother about. CAA discount card proving invaluable for lodging. Cheapest diesel so far here in Waynesboro at $2.759 per US gallon. The smart car is going well. You can follow the tour here.
