We have finally reached the ninety-sixth day of touring the U.S. with the ID. 4. Collinsville, VA would be our starting point and we began by loading up the car and leaving the hotel for our final day of visiting VW dealerships. On our way out of Collinsville, we passed by the town’s local bowling alley and headed down the two lane split road. We headed north on highway 220 and the road was lined with tall, skinny Longleaf Pine trees. Near Roanoke, NC there was a very patriotic house that was painted in theme with the American flag. The white house had red stripes painted horizontally across and featured blue accents with white stars throughout. To top it off two flags hung on the front porch and a tall fence had a flag painted on it as well. Along the road, near a roadside shop that sells yard ornaments and flags the foliage had grown out of control. The invasive Kudzu plant had covered the entire area and stretched its way up onto the trees engulfing them in its green viney leaves. As we continued travelling, we could see the Wells Fargo Tower. The 320 foot tall building stands as both the tallest building in Roanoke and Southwest Virginia as a whole. In Buchanon, VA we checked out the Buchanan Swinging Bridge, a 66 feet long, 57.5 feet tall wooden bridge over the James River. On the river, some people were kayaking down the stream. A local eatery named James River Drip served hot dogs, ice cream, and snacks. Outside they had two hay stuffed dolls sitting at a table as if they were hanging out drinking coffees. The forested area in Ivy Creek park had been covered with orange leaves due to the seasons changing to autumn. The Porter Mountain view in Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia gave a miraculous sight of the Goose Creek Valley at an elevation of over 2500 feet. A sea of pine and oak trees covered the foothills of Catoctin Mountain. Near Charlottesville, VA a neighborhood home was covered in skeletons, spider webs, and other spooky decorations in the spirit of Halloween. There was even a skeleton as tall as the house itself. Edelweiss Restaurant in Staunton, VA was a German style restaurant that served authentic German food and desserts. We made it to Safford, VA and celebrated as Safford VW marked our final and 628th Volkswagen dealership of the ID. 4 USA tour. After visiting our last dealership the sun began to set behind the Virginia pines. Once we made it to Chantilly, our ninety-sixth day had finished.
