January 2005: An elixir for Adam Unikowsky’s self-described abysmal first semester of law school and my own graduate exam study-saturation point, our road trip from NYC to Nashville, Tennessee naturally germinated. After surviving a freak snowstorm south of Shenandoah National Park, we arrived in Troutville, VA (pop. ~432) where apparently child labor laws are considered “quaint” and weather forecasting is still a newfangled science. Other highlights included West Virginia, Gettysburg, the Biltmore Estate, Mammoth Cave (the longest in the world) and Nashville, where I lived out my life-long dream of being a star on the stage of the historic Grand Ole Opry!
