Moving To Virginia - Day 6 (The End)
(with comments)

The final leg of the journey east to Virginia began this morning at 8:40 EDT. They left Bulls Gap, TN headed for Blue Ridge, VA, where the horses will be set up in their new (temporary) home.

This jaunt is a scant 227 miles. I scoff at this insignificant distance - a pittance at best!

The family reached their final destination at 1:30 p.m. EDT, safe, sound, somewhat sane - but not sorry to see it come to an end. I'm sure you all feel much the same way.

Once the family settles, I hope to have a few photos to post at a later date, a more pictorial blog entry, if you will.

Until then, one last word to all readers of the J-Walk Blog: Thank you for your forbearance in putting up with my posts this past week.

John insisted, and I thought it would be fun for Carisa, Jim, Felicia, Chase, Tequila, Lacy, Vega, Reven-Up, Toby, Jesse and Buss to have their travels chronicled on the trip to Virginia.

From the bottom of my heart - MANY THANKS!

And here's a nice tune about the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    I had a great time and thank you for letting us all share the fun. I look forward to some more photos of the family when they get settled in and I'm glad Grandma can rest easy now.

    Thanks to the travelers and entourage for allowing us to take part in their journey. It was very interesting and very satisfying.

    Indeed, this is one of the reasons I faithfully check the J-Walk blog every day (multiple times). Thank you.

    For me the best blog story of the summer. Maybe I need to expand my blogs that I read but I think I'm good.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I almost wish it had taken them another week. I know they are glad its over and I am happy they arrived safely.

    But I wouldnt be telling the truth if I didn't say I am a little sad it is over.

    Pamn, thanks for sharing with us. I check J-Walk every night and the story of the journey was one of the most entertaining things ever.

    You are all very kind. Having been raised by a mother who valued keeping in touch with friends and family by writing notes and letters, this is a very different way of sharing moments in your life. Unique, fun, rewarding. And thank you for making it so.

    I am so glad you all made it safe and sound. I loved following the trip, the adventures, and the thoughts of a Dairy Queen Banana split. Can't wait to see the pictures.

    Thanks for the trip reports. Glad that one and all are there safe and possibly sane. Its a beautiful area. May I recomend the following:
    The Virginia Horse Center in Lexington
    Whites Truck Stop, and the Cyrus McCormic Farm, about 20 minutes north of Lexington
    I don't know about Virginia, but West Virginia has their farm market newsletter on line at http://www.wvagriculture.org/market_bulletin/market_bulletin.html
    And WV farmers list hay for sale

    Just kidding. I don't live there any more. But I spent a good chunk of my life in the Two River Valleys and still consider that a home. Nice place that I'd be happy to return to any day, though kind of difficult to get to from New York.
