Lafayette, we have arrived

It was quite a trip to get here (Virginia Beach). We left Tuesday evening for Wilderstead, and the rain was so intense we almost turned around. Got up early in the holler and headed down the road. Everything went well until we crossed into Virginia, whereupon D's muffler decided to hit the road. We heard it dragging and stopped. The strap was still there; only the bolt holding it on had vibrated itself out. So, I fixed it with some coat hanger wire and we barreled on down the road. After 13 hours of travel, we arrived at our hotel.

Today is a day of preparation. We're going to Anna and Brian's house to help clean and such for the baby's arrival. Anna goes into the hospital tonight to begin induction, and the baby should be born sometime tomorrow. I'm flying out of here tomorrow afternoon, leaving D. to help after Anna and son come home.

My usual choice to camp everywhere I go is confirmed in what this trip is costing us. Even before we've helped Anna with anything, we're out about a thousand bucks to go hithering and thithering about the land. And we don't even get a patch for it. Ouch!
