Almost exactly two years to the day we left, we were on our way on our 2nd road trip. In 2013 CJ and I left on April 19th, this year we left on April 17th. In 2013 we were in the airport at 4am, in 2015, we left mid day from work. We were already doing better this time around!
Plus if you ask me, all great road trips should start right here.....
We arrived in Blacksburg in time for dinner at my favorite place, Slouvaki and then picked up our stuff for the 3.2 walk the next day. Amanda graciously let us crash at her place Friday night, so after dinner we headed back there! We were up relatively early on Saturday but it was so worth it to be able to join together with other hokies to remember the 32 victims!

Of course we had to grab a quick picture with the Hokie Bird...

After the "race" we walked over to Main street for the Blacksburg Chocolate Festival! It was totally amazing and made for such an incredible day! We grabbed some pictures with the Hokie bird art around town!
Quick stop in West Virginia...

They gave us the real Cincinnati experience including a local pizza place and Cincinnati Chili. Three states down, 9 more to go, so stay tuned for more updates!
