Harper's Ferry West Virginia

For a time I lived minutes away from lower town Harper's Ferry.  There were all kinds of little shops, places to eat and even a wax museum.  I love wax museums and couldn't resist, John Brown wax museum.  Nice little museum.  I also hiked a bit on the Appalacian Trail and actually the house I lived in was sitting next to part of the trail.  I visited Jefferson Rock and John Browns Fort, all worthwhile historic locations to check out.  I didn't get to see any enactments or tours that they do from time to time.  I also missed the ghost tours, but I heard they are pretty cool. Whitewater rafting tours are available, but alas, I never made the time for them.  I pretty much checked out the entire town, I wish I had taken photos then, it's hard to remember too much since I lived there over twelve years ago.

The Epicurean Delight

Recently I attended a friends wedding and it was catered by Epicurean Delight.  It was the most fantastic food EVER and the staff was so friendly.  When I saw the menu, I almost fell over.

Everything I learned about packing up a house before a move

As a child, my family moved from place to place to place.  My parents tell me we moved about ten times since I was born.  Following jobs and chasing the dream home until my parents landed for ten years, then I moved out when I turned eighteen.  My parents then divorced and moved a few more times.  I ended up moving thirteen times after I moved out of my parents house.  From the beach in Maryland to West Virginia, back to the beach, traveling down the east coast with the carnival (that's a story for another day), back to the beach, back home, out to the city with a roommate, back home again, out again, and again and again and again.  So I am becoming quite efficient with the whole process.  My in-laws are moving and asking me for tips, they suggested I share my wealth of information.
