Taking our own advice with regard to road traveling and enjoying the journey, we stopped and had dinner at an off the beaten path place we heard about from a couple we know and saw at Parents Weekend. It was a BBQ place in Richmond, Va. It was quite tasty and we were quite pleased with ourselves for taking the time to stop and enjoy one of the sites and scenes in an unfamiliar area. We also took advantage of the break to check northbound traffic, and decided to try another route to avoid a big backup. We had to alter our route a couple more times, all while making forward progress, and arrived safely at home in decent time.
