The drive

The drive to H-S yesterday went really smoothly. We had no problems with the truck and we got there a lot faster than we anticipated. Chris was racing other trucks on the road - here's a picture of him passing a slower, lamer truck.

Here's another picture of the road leading into town:
Fields and hills as far as the eye can see in every direction!! This next year is going to be an experience compared to D.C. To provide everyone with an update, we saw a couple places yesterday and have not decided on one yet. We loaded our stuff into a garage and are going to spend the next week while we're at the beach deciding where to live. One interesting piece of trivia for you though: one woman wanted to rent us the house in which Robert E. Lee had tea hours before he went to Appomatox to surrender! Unfortunately it was too expensive for us!
