The South Rises Again

Light posting today guys and through the weekend, as I ready the fam for the trip to Va. I think this will be one for the ages. I've been reading so much about the Civil War, slavery, and Virginia particularly over the last few months. It's very much like being a kid again and being obsessed with the Dragonlance, or the X-Men. Except this time you get to Krynn. You get to visit the Mansion. Being an adult is a lot better. I am going to walk the Wilderness. I am going to see the Crater.
