    Oh weeder, you're so lucky to live in that area! Monticello is worth a visit for sure and as well as VMI. I've visited the cemetery ... what a small world! True story ... when my husband's grandfather was having his school photo taken, he told the photographer his name was Stonewall Jackson. The photographer decided to call his bluff and logged it down as such and it ended up being printed in the school yearbook with his photo and his name as Stonewall Jackson. From that time forward, his nickname was Jack and that's what my husband goes by as well ... a hand-me-down nickname.

    Have you ever been to the Green Valley Book Fair in Mt. Crawford? The lure of a combination of inexpensive books and beautiful scenery is too much for me to bear! It's held a few times each year and I usually end up going in August although I didn't make it this past year.

    I used to go to Green Valley every year. I lived in a tiny rural town right near there. Now, I havent been there in years. I have
    enough books!! How far are you from me? When I joined FG in 2004 I was down in Georgia. I am originally from New York. I came to Va in 1996.

    I'm a big Civil War fan, I's love to see Lee's house and the Lexington battlefield. You're right, very beautiful area.

    Saint_, you live in a truly awesome part of the state. I love going to Mesa Verde, and many of the other sites down your way.

    Beautiful scenery = awesome.
    backwards inhabitants = not so much.

    Personally, I'd love to see the East Coast. I've been to every one of the states west of the Mississippi, but I've never been to the east. New York, especially, would be cool.

    It's about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive north from here to get to Mount Crawford. I'm south of you in central/south Va about an hour from the Carolina border. I never knew there was such a thing as enough books ... ha ha!!

    That is enough books to own... not enough books to read. No more collecting for me, I am a minimalist.
    So your about 2 hours south of me. Takes about an hour north to get to Mt. Crawford.
