Off the Beaten Path … in Virginia

Opting Out of Normal

As full-time RV’ers we travel and see a lot. This is part of our Opting Out of Normal series where we explore the “Off the Beaten Path” of every state. We love the big popular stuff like everyone else, but there is just something incredible about discovering something unique, different and maybe a little “off the beaten path”.

Each series will include at least 1 epic boondocking area, some complete with pictures and all with GPS coordinates.
