Bull Run Battlefield Beats Blogger’s Butt

30 05 2009

I’m back from a long, hot, tiring day on the First Bull Run battlefield.  I’m old, fat, and way out of shape.

I got to the park Friday afternoon and managed to get a few of the photos I needed before a series of heavy thunderstorms rolled in.  Fellow blogger and FOBR Craig Swain fought his way through traffic and arrived in time to join me for dinner and good conversation.  I got up early this morning and visited a couple of sites outside the park boundaries, then met Craig on Matthews Hill at 8:00 AM for some stomping.  It’s always better to tour in the company of a knowledgeable companion with a good sense of humor.  Thanks Craig!

Too tired to write more or download photos now.  I’ll get to it in a few days.

It was my pleasure Harry.

Sorry about that one mix up heading back to Highway 15 via back roads. I swear the Braddock Road connection to 15 was passable two weeks ago! The subdivisions in Loudoun County are much like Hogwart’s moving staircases….

Not a problem – thanks for the lead-out!
