For Camping, Yurt and Cabin Reservations: Fairystone State Park Reservations through Reserve America

A Yurt!?! What is a Yurt. Funny you should ask. We looked at yurts in the show. You can see them by going to the show (top of page). But, basically, a Yurt is a semi-permanent camping structure, sort of between a tent and a cabin. Here’s a Wikipedia explanation: What is a Yurt

Firewood Quarantines: In the show, I promised to put information on this webpage about the firewood quarantine, what it means and why it’s in effect. Here is that link: Virginia State Firewood Quarantine

That’s my show for this week.

As always, I hope this show inspires you to get out and do your own rambling! Get out there and find the many places to go, things to do and events to attend, many of which are right there in your back yard.

As you head out, make sure you are driving a safe, well-maintained vehicle.

Here is your Defensive Driving Tip for this Week:

Keep a pair of polarized sunglasses within reach as you drive. If you drive around a curve or over a hill and suddenly find yourself blinded by the sun, grabbing a pair of polarized sunglasses is the best way to cut glare from direct and reflected glare.

Until my next Posting, here’s wishing you SAFE RAMBLING!
