If I stayed out of a neighborhood just because of a prostitute or three on the corner I never would have gone anywhere as a kid.

We did not leave Florida till about 3:00 Sunday afternoon. The leisure approach to travel.

Sat for 1 hour in accident traffic in Charlotte NC. Bunked down about 11 pm in Statesville, NC north of Charlotte. Some morning work and then breakfast at IHOP. Still have to knock out 7 hours today to get home.

Accident report. http://m.wsoctv.com/news/news/local/one-dead-i-77-crash/nn9CB/ Article says 7:40 accident. We sat from 8:30 to 9:30 pm.
Four lanes narrowed to one.

An overcast day but the fall colors of Virginia are perfect. I am sure the picture will not do it justice.

Where is the traffic?

I went straight up 95 yesterday. 14.5 hours of sitting on my butt I made it home.

77/64 in WV is one heck of a fun road in my opinion. When you're not following a cop, or broke down to 1 lane from road crews repairing the road. All the flat and off camber corners make that road one that I would not want to deal with in a tall vehicle.
