  • V1’s road trip adventures

    I’m not sure how this thread will end up but I wanted to log my adventure while I cross the state in route to my next duty assignment in TX (FT Bliss). So after clearing post and passing my housing inspection yesterday, the family took off to NC (Stedmon) to spend the Christmas holidays with family (the wives). I will be here till the 3rd and then hit the road to El Paso. I figure it should take me 3-4 days to get there. While traveling, there are a few things I would like to do; First, I would like to check out a few good road side restaurants as seen on the Food Net work channel.
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/local/ind.../-97.222306/3/

    I would also like to hit a few hardcore gyms while I make my way to TX (One being Metroflex Gym in Arlington) any suggestions from you guys would be appreciated. I think it would also be cool if I could get a workout in with a few of you guys. So, If the stars all line up and anyone’s interested just let me know. I’ll be posting my stops as I go (in advance) and if anyone that wants to get a workout in, just let me know.
    Well as I’ve already mentioned, we headed out yesterday on our way to NC to spend the holidays. Other than a few semi’s that attempted to run me off the road and the fact that most Virginian’s should not be allowed behind the wheel of an automobile, the trip went pretty well and took us only 2.5 hours to get there. I've added the first of hopefully many pic’s of this journey. This was taken right before we took off. Notice the level of motivation I showing!! I hope you enjoy this thread !!

    P.S. I'm still waiting for either TN or IM to come up with a skull cap! So no comments on the current one!!

          I know Chico's and Kiki's are both on food network in El Paso. Have fun during the road trip and let me know if you have any questions when you get here.

                  Having a relaxing time so far at the in laws house. I did some cardio outside with the wife today. Needed it for sure! So I checked out myscenicdrives.com and plotted my ride to TX. Day 1 has me stopping in Birmingham AL, Day 2 in Waskom TX and day 3 in Midland TX and Day 4 puts me into El Paso. This all depends on how many hours I actually put on the road. Also, day 3 is when I will hit Arlington to visit Metroflex Gym!

                    V, i don't see New Hampshire on your route! I booked a flight from here to North Dakota and had a lay over in Houston,Tx, thought for sure i'd not be far off your route to throw a workout in . That was flying Northwest though.

                      Wow, that must have been a very long flight (w/lay over). Sorry looks like your just a tad northeast of the route i'll be taking. Would have enjoyed getting that workout in though.

                          First workout back from my break, working at a gym called Extreme Fitness in Steadman NC. It’s a small gym but it has most everything I need and it saves me about a 30 min drive to FT Bragg. The folks there seem pretty nice. They gave the wife and me a good 3 week deal. They gave me a pin code number which allows me to use the gym anytime I want. Will post some pic’s once I figure out how to change the file type from pic’s sent from my android phone. I e-mailed to my yahoo acct but when I save them they save as a yahoo-mail. I then save them as a webpage HTML but that didn’t work either. Will keep working on it!

                              Hope everyone had a nice Christmas and got a few things under the tree that they liked. I got some new Miami Dolphin hats and a new G-shock. I sort of gotta thing for hats and watches. Oh and T-shirts! Hey, you can never have enough workout shirts!! No, I didn't make this video.
