Thanks Norm. For coming over (to the south would I gain any advantage by going 460 to 100 to 42 into Bland?

That would add a lot of miles John...probably better to suffer the slow traffic on I77.

There is another alternate route that would add only about 15 miles or so, but it's a mountain road and will be somewhat slow going too: At Exit 9, take 460 west to route 598 (Bland Road). Rt 598 will bring you out on the south side of East River Mt tunnel back onto I77 at mile marker 68.

Got a second hand report today concerning traffic on I77 South: Still one lane closed from Exit 9 to Exit 1 at the tunnel. Traffic was slow but moving along. Sounded like you would be just as well to stay on I77 coming to Bland...


Come on down Bill. It's been too long...

First time coming to Bland. Been wanting to come down there for a few years. Finally got some vacation so really looking forward to it. I plan on getting there tomorrow evening. Who do I need to see Friday to drop off an apple pie for the cook out?

Which type of apple pie are you referring to I know there was some served at the battle of apple hill in Ohio that almost took out whole bunch of Va troops. It wasn't the kind you eat though?

I will get two made if you go next year JD.

Bandy, It would be just a normal apple pie. I still take a few sips of the liquid kind. But have pretty well given the liquid up after the OSTA convention at Caldwell a few years back crazy crazy.

Heading that way as soon as I get off here. Looking for a couple of days of just relaxing.
