The journey continues

well tomorrow morning I continue west. I spent 3 solid days with my brother and had a wonderful time. We went to BW3s, grilled, smoked pork, took care of the farm, and spent quality time together. Dobby has had an amazing time. He got along beautifully with all the chickens, sheep, horses, and dogs. Tomorrow morning I will head to Chattanooga. From there you will have to keep reading to find out.

Deep in the heart of Virginia

So last nost I made it to my brothers house in Farmville, VA. We sat around around and talk them went to bed. Today we did dome errands than went for a walk with Dobby on the highest bridge in America, back in the day. We went for a walk an boy did I slice my face up big time on thrones growing in the wild. We tended to the chickens, sheep, and horses then proceeded to buffalo Wild wings for some delicious dinner delights. Now back to farm living till tomorrow.

A Day of sights and sounds

Well this morning Dobby woke me up at 7. We went for a little walk and I decided that, even though I had some coffee it was too early to continue with the day outside at least. We bummed around and at 10 drove to Patterson Park. It's huge. But still not big enough to contain the adventurers. So we proceeded to walk through the projects and end up in downtown Baltimore. Visited Camden Yards and many other sites. Actually was asked to leave the hallowed grounds where Ripken played - no dogs allowed. I read the sign and even told the security guy. He said I had a good point, but it was implied. None the less, 7 miles later we arrived back at the car. Oh, I bought a delicious fresh-squeezed lemonade. Got back to the motel and Dobby took a super nap. At 5:30 met up with Renee for dinner at the Blue Hill Tavern and the proceeded to use the coolest "taxi" app ever, Uber. We got a ride over to the other side of Baltimore for a drink at a hipster bar then caught a show that's part of the Fringe Theatre Festival. It all ended taking another Uber taxi up a one way street, the wrong way and a drink at the Annabel Lee Tavern. Baltimore, you treated me well and Renee thanks for showing me around and sharing lots of laughs.

Apple core. Baltimore. Who's your friend?

So I made it to Baltimore. When I started out on my trip I decided not to take any highways/interstates. See a little of what America really is. It's been beautiful so far. Dobby and I stopped and had lunch in PA and continued on into Maryland. We checked into our hotel and then went for a much needed walk. I then ventured into downtown to meet up with one of my Peace Corps friends, Renee. We went out for dinner and drinks and reminisced about our times in Malawi. Tomorrow Dobby and I are going to explore more of the downtown. So stay tuned to our adventure.

Old Forge

Well I've made it to my first stop along the way, Old Forge, PA. The home to a longtime friend, Jay. I left Dalton at 12:45 and took every backroad until i arrived. I figure that I'm in no rush, so why should I travel fast. I arrived at 5:20 and was welcomed by Jay's dad and Lucy, the family's hyper dog. She was quickly introduced to Dobby and got a dose of her own medicine (she bosses around the family cat). Anyways Mrs. Malecki arrives home and after catching up on how awesome my final destination will be we went to dinner at a diner. Fish and chips followed by a small serving of rice and bread puddings, simply delicious. When we got back I fed Dobby, and I think I have found a wY for him to eat his whole dinner right away, have another dog there watching him, he thought Lucy was going to steal his food. I showed My photos of Malawi and have settled in for the night. Tomorrow I journey south to my next stop on my journey. I'll let you in on where I am then.
