Hi everyone, we made it back ! we took 287 around New York and hooked up with 95 in New Jersey. 95 was really busy and troublesome - especially between DC and Fredericksburg. Thanks for all your advice !

I have to ask where did you eat down there?

I grew up in the Eastern Panhandle - its right in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley.  Pretty near to Harpers Ferry.  Really beautiful historic area.  My Aunt lived at one time in a house that was part of the underground railroad.

I enjoyed lots of southern favorites .... Duck Donuts ( kind of like crispy cremes - but made to order and dipped in really great toppings ).  I had grits and fried green tomatoes at a local diner.  At my Mom's we had sausage gravy and scrapple ( or panhaas - which is the German term ) and lots of things our of the garden.  She also made kraut and dumplings one day. 

I helped her with her sauerkraut and pickle making.

In Williamsburg itself - we ended up with local Chinese, Pizza and Sandwich shops.  Nothing too fancy.
