Happy Veteran’s Day and welcome to the March for PTSD!
During my journey I have had the grand opportunity to meet many, many veterans, and being a vet myself I do want to take a moment here to say THANK YOU to all those who have worn a uniform and taken an oath to protect our great country.
This is an important day for another reason…I would like to thank my WONDERFUL and VERY UNDERSTANDING wife and wish her a HAPPY 25th Wedding Anniversary, I’m looking forward to another 25 years.
The Virginia State Police pitched in today to help me move my pack once again. Two different gentlemen, Officer Carpenterarri and Trooper Dayes carried out the duties, and I am in debt to your service, thanks guys… that helps me a lot.
Not too much to tell… it was kind of a slow day as far as “news from the road goes”… I’m still in the Blueridge Mountains but only small manageable rises challenge my path. I saw quite a few small acreage farms and rural properties as I wandered through the Virginia countryside today.
Starting in Salem, VA this morning and ending this afternoon Bedford, I reunited with my pack at the local Super 8 hotel…(thanks again officers!)
I had to pay for my own room tonight but that’s okay at least they gave me a decent discount! You can’t win ‘em all and every little bit helps… quoting two sometimes overused cliches.
I’m closing in on D.C. it won’t be long now folks!
See ‘ya on the road!
