Day 70: 43 miles, Jul 27

Fairly easy day today on the way to the home of Thad and Sarah Lee in Radford. He is a physician who did the TransAm a few years ago with his two sons (both of whom are now fighter pilots: F-15C and F-22!!!) and has opened his door to cyclists ever since. As soon as I arrived on his property (I had called earlier after receiving his number from a westbounder) he began telling cycling stories. And what stories! I'm afraid I nearly had to interrupt him to have my dinner they were so numerous. I thorough enjoyed his company, and the sleep was some of the best I've gotten on the whole trip.

The picture is of a church and graveyard, a sight I am finding more and more often now that I'm in Virginia.
