Weekend Wrap-up

With our basement roommate feeding cats and protecting our valuable collection of TV shows on DVDs from theft, we took the opportunity to get out of town this weekend. We headed down to a vacation house on Wintergreen Mountain, about twenty miles south of W'anusboro, in order to celebrate Annie Mueller's birthday in style.

In spite of Rebecca's work schedule, we managed to squeeze out of Northern Virginia a few minutes before rush hour, probably shaving an hour off of the trip. In spite of that though, the trip was bookended by an hour of traffic in South Riding at the beginning, and an hour of driving in the rain at the end. Fortunately, the middle two hours were punctuated by tasty sandwiches and fries from a Sheetz on Route 29.

On Saturday morning, sunny skies gave us a brief, yet full view of the mountainside, after which we were engulfed in a death fog for the remainder of the weekend. We passed the time hiking, playing games, hot tubbing, using up all of the firewood, and making fun of Mike Catania for opting to go to France instead of this cabin.

On Sunday, we narrowly avoided dying in the death fog, and made it down the mountain to the Wintergreen Winery (quaint, inexpensive, but not amazing), and Blue Mountain Brewery (very good flights). We got back home around 5 after a 300-mile round trip, and did things like laundry and eating leftovers.

How was your weekend?
