She's cute, used to be on CNBC when she was starting out.

I think it was on this thread that we were relating which battle fields in the US we have been to.   Earlier this fall I did visit the Droop Mountain Civil War battlefield, which is in southeast West Virginia.

Also, earlier this summer, I went to the Corydon Battlefield, which again is Civil War, and  in southern Indiana.  It is the only Civil War battle fought in Indiana:

Also, I don't think I had mentioned this, but this past summer I spent a couple of days in Boston......and among other things went to the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill...which I had not been to before.

I was toting my pack along the long dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi with a high canvas covered load
If your goin' to Winnemucca, Mack with me you can ride
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, "Listen! I've traveled every road in this here land!"

Oh yes I used to travel a lot whether it was in scouts, vacation or business I don't think that I have ever regretted a single trip......I'm sure that you feel the same way.
