So the whole trip started out with difficulty! The rental place that the church rents through said we would have 2 large SUVs, which would''ve been pushing it for room, but that way Scott could drive one and Josh the other. They pick them up and they are some Chrystler mid-size things...we couldn't even get 1/2 the luggage in! So, finally the rental company said they would give us a 3rd SUV free of charge, but that meant I had to drive! Boo! I had bought 2 books to read on the trip! :(
We FINALLY got out of town at about 10 AM, headed for Gretchen's! The ride up was fairly un-eventful...just the usual Chick-fil-a fiascos....we found the one that we were unable to find last year in Tennesee....
I drove the Pathfinder (The Party Pathfinder) with 3 passengers and most of the luggage. Rach, Abby and Taylor were with me the 1st day!
Arrived in Blacksburg in time for dinner. It was sooo good to see Gretch and catch up with her and her mom! Love her and miss her tons!
HOWEVER, Gretch's house doesn't have air conditioning, so Scott and I barely slept that night, and were up at 5:00 AM to get going...and so starts the sleep deprivation...
