September 3, 2016 – Another Long Day on the Road

As a rule, we try to plan our days by the unofficial 250/2:30 rule … driving no more than 250 miles in a day or be at our destination no later than 2:30 PM, whichever occurs first.  Our original itinerary had only one day over 300 miles … but as things got rescheduled, our last three days of driving have all topped 300 miles!

Leaving Max Meadow,VA we could see low hanging clouds over the Shenandoah River in the distance and crossed several smaller rivers where a curtain of mist shrouded the water below
