There's a lot of freedom in not working an 8-5. A lot. And to celebrate my first break from the 40 hour workweek in a decade, I thought it worthwhile to make a southeastern tour through some old and new stomping grounds in South Carolina and Georgia. Setting off in the AM on a September Tuesday, coffee in hand, I drove from Virginia Beach down 85 to Greenville, SC - home to some great parks, good eats and some excellent friends. It's always great to visit ol' GVegas, as it is also home to the residential arts highschool I attended.
