Today I spent the majority of the day in Lynchburg, which is so full of Liberty University I could barely stand myself! The Walmart in town even had a separate store for LU wear. Why can’t ours have ODU stuff in Hampton Roads like that?
The site today that I visited was small, small, small. Like they are in a trailer small. I feel so bad for these people, but major props to them for working in such crappy conditions. I think they are the only site we have in the state that are still in a trailer.
It’s midafternoon now and I just checked into my hotel in Gretna, which was about an hour and some change down the road. I am near Smith Mountain Lake, which I hear is wonderful. Too bad for me, I am in the middle of NOWHERE. This nowhere is even more nowhere than I was last time I was out in the mountains.
According to my hotel guide, Gretna has a population of 1300 people and encompasses 1.2 square miles. There’s not even a Wendy’s here people. Thank goodness I got some food in Lynchburg before I left!
The hotel is NICE. It’s just a Hampton Inn but it’s brand new and I practically screamed with joy when I saw washcloths, conditioner, and brand new carpet in my room. It’s the little things. This hotel also has a breakfast, so I can have something besides a Luna bar tomorrow!
I look forward to spending the evening in my clean-smelling hotel room, working on my class stuff and getting some TV in before bed. Two more days until I go home!
