I did a little field trip today to the Bull Run Mountains behind Haymarket, VA, just north of Va-55 and I-66. There is a road, Antioch, which connects to Hopewell Road and goes through the mountain pass (at about 1000 feet) and goes down to The Plains, VA.
I think I was here in the fall of 1962 (while a patient with NIH) with high school (Science Honor Society) old friends.
I found a horse attraction, then a county park with a lake, and then went up the mountain.
Three videos follow. I talk a little about the last story in my DADT-III book, “The Ocelot the Way He Is”, as this is the area that “Bill” drives through to meet “Nolan” and then go to the fictitious ashram or intentional community, after which stuff happens. (See June 25, 2014 for treatment of “Two Road Trips”.) I also talk about some legal issues that could potentially occur with hosting asylum seekers.
