Avoid Pollen: Escape to the Blue Ridge Parkway
Yesterday in Laurel Springs, VA and in the heart of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Wild Woody's opened their doors for the first day of the 2016 Spring season. Woody's, a trailer campground complete with outdoor bar, has been welcoming bikers exploring the scenic range since the 1950's. They've been closed since Carl Stovall's birthday during the first week of November last year but Carl is back to greet them. And me apparently. "Come on in," he says, "I've got to figure out where all these lights are. It's been a while." He shows me around the inside of the main building, calling to my attention their large record collection. It's like 9 a.m. and it looks like I'm the first visitor of the year.
It costs about $45 a night to stay in one of the mountain castles. I forgot to ask about internet. Maybe on the way back.
So begins the first full day of my #AvoidPollen Tour, a journey that will take me from a tree sperm covered Columbia, SC to..... ummmmm... somewhere north and for an undetermined length of time. Photos from today's post were made between Boone, NC and Meadows of Dan, VA.
