The motel is located in a "not so good" part of town. We reserved a downstairs room 3 weeks prior to our stay (wife uses cane-difficulty with stairs) Only room available at check-in was upstairs. Office staff sympathetic to our problem but 'nothing' could be done. TV remote broken, TV wouldn't get but 1 channel at 1 volume (TV front controls broke). Had to get management to connect smoke alarm back on wall. (laying on top of micro-wave, battery laying beside it)
Room was clean. Staff pleasant. Continental breakfast ok. Decor nice. Price acceptable. Guess stay would have been more plesant if they would have given us a room that we RESERVED !!...but we won't be staying here again.

... 1966. I was in my last year at Exeter High School, and we lived on Deerhill Road in Brentwood. Every Sunday we would hear the dragsters roar down the strip. I only went a couple of times back then; the funny cars were the best. The New England Dragway is the only 1/4 mile drag strip in New England, although they don't actually race that distance anymore. I'm just a wealth of known-essential info.
Bye for now. Stay ...
Today was another travel day. We didn't plan on seeing anything in particular, but rather just traversing as much of the South as possible. That entailed getting from VA to a suburb of Atlantic prior to nightfall. On paper, easily achievable. In reality....riddled with accidents. As it turns out, we weren't the only ones traveling on Good Friday. We did however make it to Suwanee, GA with daylight to spare! Just a few miles away Jen discovered was Georgia's largest mall, ...
... famed Amicalola Falls - 3rd highest in the USA and the start/end of the Appalachian Trail. And then hiked from the visitor center to the falls and back on two different trials. Maybe 3 miles or 1/1,000th of the famed Trail. Like spending 10 minutes at the Grand Canyon!
And then we discovered the boutique town of Blue Ridge where the new money from Atlanta hangs out over weekends and holidays. Great shopping and the ...
... called Mountain Crossing that sells pizza and coffee so I quickly changed my mind. I ended up staying here in the hostel, it's supposed to pour tonight so I couldn't pass up the opportunity for a dry bed. Planning on doing about 11 miles tomorrow, it's supposed to rain and snow tomorrow so we will see if I'm able to make it to Low Gap ...
We left for our big road trip on Friday morning with too much stuff and were absolutely sure we had left something important. We drove to Charlotte, NC and met a longtime friend of my father's, Ralph Milligan, at a traditional NC barbecue place called Bill Spoon's. Ralph is a delightful Presbyterian minister turned counselor who was the head of the Samaritan Counseling Center in Lake Charles about a dozen years ago when my parents were in Welsh, LA and my dad ...
