To the TAT

DAY 8


Neil and I were getting good at working as a team, setting up and tearing down our camp. It had only been a week, but we were like a well oiled machine. 




It was time for us to head to our starting point on the Trans America Trail. Henry & Lisa's home in Virginia. Their home-away-from-home was just off the Trans America Trail. 


Henry is a YouTube Fan of mine. A super supportive fan for years. He invited Neil, Jersey and myself to kick off the trip at his home. I was excited to meet him as we had been online friends for a while.




Henry's hunting lodge is in the mountains of Virginia and has a lot of logging roads on his land. I plan on getting back up there to wheel with him this spring.



He and his wife Lisa gave us a walking tour of their property which was nice because Neil & I needed some exercise after being cooped up in the Jeep driving for the past week.





After the walk through their property and the story of the Big Foot spotting on their land, we sat down to a good old BBQ of hamburgers and hot dogs. 



That evening was so cool to just sit and chat like in the good old days sharing Jeep stories and getting to know each other. By the end of the night it felt like we were hanging out with long time friends. 



Neil and I got to sleep early as tomorrow was going to be a long day of navigation on the TAT.
