Day 2, Slow it Down

Slept under the stars last night and woke to a heavy dew blanketing everything. Up at 5:30 but still way to dark and cold to travel, finally departed at 6:30. Sun won't be up for at least another 30 minutes.

Something really nice about being up before everyone else. I arrived at the start of the Skyline drive long before the gates open, but I figure those cones are just a suggestion, so on I go to enjoy the Skyline Drive all to myself.

What a great place to see the sun rise.

Stayed off the interstate today and enjoyed some local roads, I'm starting to enjoy the journey a bit. Yesterday it felt more like a silly, pointless quest based on selfishness and immaturity. I can live with the immature part.

After at least an hour searching for a campsite, I finally reached very nice woman from the National Recreation Area who pointed me to a great little campsite. I had the entire place to myself.

Finally had a chance to catch up on a few details last night. I like stopping while it's still daylight, I'll have to make this a goal.
