 After a good night's sleep we were up and away by 9:30 today.   Debra took the wheel for a number of hours to give Wayne a break.  We will be covering a number of states today staying on Interstate 81 South the whole way.  We were out of New York and into Pennsylvania after only about 1/2 hour of driving.   Great roads all the way.  No sign of snow at all.
Pennsylvania was the major part of the trip today.  About 4 hours driving.  In the early afternoon we did two brief stretches which took us through Maryland and West Virginia.   Lovely mountains kept us in awe all along route.  The sun came out in the afternoon and it was like a spring day.  Grass was green and the sky was blue.    Georgous!    Temp was up to +7 C so a major improvement from yesterday's -3C with a wicked windchill.

       As we entered Virginia we came upon the Shenendoah Valley just as the sun was beginning to set.  Allegheny Mountains on one side of the road and the Blue Ridge Mountains on the other.    We saw a small herd of deer grazing along the road.  The mountains had a smoky look as the sun finally set in a pink fireball behind them.  We arrived into Staunton, Virginia after sunset and in time to check into our hotel and then head out for a meal

      After dinner our eternal hockey fan (Wayne) asked the management if they might put the Toronto Maple Leaf and Buffalo Sabres hockey game onto the bar television.  They were happy to oblige.    So all is well and the trip is going well.  No palm trees yet but it's warming up so perhaps we'll find one in the Carolinas - tomorrow is set to be a North Carolina evening arrival.   Let's hope we continue to make great and a safe journey.

Ozzi has been a star.   Such a good little traveller.  He's looking forward to meeting up with his Buddy Henry in Florida. ........  Soon Oz, soon.
Arrived North Carolina At the Quality Inn in Just outside Of Fayettville North Carolina Dinner at Shoney's Restaurant was a disaster.... Breakfast at the Hotel in the morning has been promised to be pleasant........The room is great.....Ozzi sound a sleep, Deb too !! 10 :30 pm !! 
My turn to watch a little tube and off to South Carolina tomorrow ......
$49.99 plus $15.00 for Ozzi BARGAIN !!!
