We weren't up terribly early, since we are all still tired from all the running and touring around DC but Dave and I were outside before 8, getting things ready to move. We pulled out between 9 and 9:30 and were glad to be on the road to the big rally.
We only had about 150 miles to go and we made good time, freeway most of the way. We didn't stop anywhere for a rest or comfort stop but we did stop at a Blue Beacon Truck and Trailer wash to get our rigs cleaned up. We were probably there for an hour, there were two big trucks in line ahead of us, but we spent the time chatting with Dave and Nancy and talking about the next rally.
We were only about 60 miles away from Urbanna and even though the roads were single lanes, we made good time. When we came through Tappahanook we saw a Cyclone coming toward us. It was a couple named Bill and Kelly that I have been following on the RV-Dreams forum and who just recently bought their trailer. I told Stella that they were going the wrong way and we had a chuckle about it. Later that night, Kelly posted on Facebook about seeing a Landmark and Big Country traveling in the direction of Urbanna. I told her it was us and what I had told Stella and Kelly replied that she had said the same thing to Bill, that they were going the wrong way.
We got here and all set up including our porch and steps by 3 o'clock or so. We saw a lot of our old friends, who stopped by to say hello and we met our neighbors from Alabama, Bill and Sue. We sat outside chatting with them for a bit and then went across the street to our friends John and Debbie to sit out by their campfire. We stayed as long as we could, and turned in. It had been a nice way to start the rally.
