Mobile Blogging from here.
Dad told us a story about how, as a young man, he walked down the hill from this house after 24 hours of no sleep and hitchhiked to Virginia.
Apparently, he was able to direct them onto the main road and asked them to wake him up in knoxville. I think that they woke him up and told him that they were lost.
Dad got them back on the road (he drove at this point) and drove “like a racecar” to Virginia.
He drove strait up to his barracks and said “goodbye.” He isn’t sure if they ever traded names, or if they ever made it to NY (their destination).
