On another ramble with a new tiny trailer a few years back we set the gps for Hot Springs VA but allowed ourselves to be sidetracked along the way by wonderful and delightful things. But this time we wanted to actually get there. We programmed the Maps App for neighboring Warm Springs and avoided the interstate. We were routed into West Virginia and actually drove part of the way along Sam Snead Parkway past The Greenbriar Resort. You have to look carefully to find Warm Springs, Virginia and in fact the Maps App wasn’t quite sure where it was. But we found Hot Springs and friendly people at the BB&T and the Chamber of Commerce. They helped us find a campsite Hidden Valley in the George Washington National Forest. So tonight we are camping off grid. We have our brand new 80W Zamp solar collector hooked up to the battery soaking up the last rays of sunshine. Tonight will be a test for the new refrigerator. In the meantime it is rather salubrious to just sit here among trees, near a meadow, and listen to the sounds of nature while spinning and reading.
