We're in Lexington after 4 days of driving across the country. Today was certainly the easiest day of the trip, with only about 6 hours and 15 minutes from Dayton, OH to Lexington. We were also helped by having no bad weather along the way, which after the previous 2 days, was a welcome relief.
We left Dayton a bit later this morning than we had had in mind, because our wakeup call never came. Oops. But, it didn't matter, as we hauled through Ohio, West Virginia, and then slowed down in time to pass 2 cops within 30 miles of the Virginia line. Welcome to VA, out-of-staters, where we like to rob your money while wearing disguises that look like policemen.
While West Virginia is a beautiful state, most of us are well aware of some of the stereotypes attached to the state. However, today, within literally one mile of the Ohio/WV border, we saw a dead deer on the side of the road with 2 dogs eating it. Welcome to West Virginia.
Anyway, we're here! Hope all of you with holiday travel plans have fast and easy trips!
