April 23 – Fayetteville to Fredericksburg

After fighting a nearly losing battle with a plug on our hot water tank and a waffle breakfast, courtesy of our campground’s management, we continued our trek north.

Aside from another lengthy30-minute traffic delay

Traffic JambWe limped along only to discover there was no apparent cause.

All day, strong, gusting winds were buffeting us broadside …

When we arrived at the campground in Ashland, VA where we usually spend our last night before getting home from Florida, we discovered “there was no room at the inn” due to a major NASCAR race this weekend in Richmond!

So, on another 40 miles to Fredericksburg … where our drive will be a bit shorter tomorrow.

Listening to tonight’s weather was a bit depressing. After nearly 3 months of 70 and degree temperatures, it was a shock to hear that temperatures as we’re getting ready to depart for home in the morning could be in the 30s … YIKES!
