Fort Chiswell, Virginia

Day 1476

     It was a gorgeous fall day as we arrived at Fort Chiswell RV Park in Fort Chiswell, Virginia.

     In 1758 there actually was a Fort Chiswell here which was an outpost during the French and Indian War. Eventually, the fort was neglected, and now no longer exists. 

     We are stopping here for only 1 night on our way back to Maryland. Since we are not unhooking the truck, we only walked around the campground.

     On our walk, this halloween day, a black cat crossed our path. What does that mean?

     To get here, we found ourselves on a wrong way concurrency, which is where the road contains two routes going in opposite directions, actually driving out US 81, we found ourselves on a double wrong way concurrency, one of the few in the United States.

  1. Good Morning from Portland, OR – I thought of you when Zeta was pounding through with a fury!! Mary said you were okay. 🙂 I love Virginia. You’re probably not too far from home now. I pray the weather stays beautiful for you! And gaining an extra hour during the night is a bonus!

  2. I know for us, it felt good to be moving again, so I pray the black cat was just that and your travels are smooth!
