Along the drive from Greenville, SC to Blacksburg, VA I stopped at my favorite "Welcome to Virginia" sign. This is the place where I entered Virginia back in November of 2008 after my roadtrip, and it made me feel like I was home.
I made my family get together for a picture this past Sunday afternoon for a holiday card. You might be lucky enough to get one of these in the mail at somepoint, but in case you don’t, this one is for you!

Last night I was surprised by Rich who pulled up at around 10pm at our house and asked if I wanted to go to the call of Duty Release shindig at Pentagon City. At that time I was through piece 47 of 162 pieces of mail that had accumulated during my trip, and had to pass. I would have loved to have gone and hung out with him, but I think this week will be mainly dedicated to making my room livable, considering I had just THROWN stuff in here before I left on my trip.
Anyways, here is what I missed… and of course, Rich titled the image “CODPinupgirls.jpg”, which I figured was “Cash on Delivery Pinup Girls”, and asked if it was a virus. It was not… it was this:
I was introduced to a new tailgating game called stump… it was pretty fun
|Age range||Legal drinking age|
|Setup time||5 minutes|
- 1 Hammer
- 1 Tree stump or flat portion of tree trunk
- 1 2.5″ – 3″ Nail per player
It involves flipping a hammer, earning the right to strike nails and keeping your nail as the last one standing!
Check out the offical rules on Wikipedia.
So, it’s been awesome being down in Blacksburg the past week. I’ve got to hang out with a lot of friends I haven’t seen in a long time, get re-checked out on the Cessna, and work from the office.
Got to go to the game last night, which rocked. I met up with my Steve and tailgated. Cops were going a little crazy because they gave someones dad a ticket for drinking in public ($25 ticket), and then I heard that during half time they started coming and towing cars out of their yard… The landlord showed up, drunk people were yelling, cops were working things out, tow trucks were messing up cars trying to get them out…
Anyways, the rule was, put your drink in a cup and you will be fine.
Go Hokies! I am in Blacksburg for the week and get to at least tailgate for the Maryland game on Thursday!
I was looking through my pictures and realized I should pay tribute to some other friends who are awesome:

Brian (“The Summit”, Not quite sure):
