Yeah so for some reason I had a good feeling about Blacksburg, Virginia. The transamerica trail goes through Christiansburg, va, which is about 5 miles away from Blacksburg. I looked at the map, saw that Virginia tech is in blacksburg, and decided that I wanted to go there.
On the way there, i accidentally ended up on a highway and hated life for about ten minutes. I definitely second guessed my decision to head for blacksburg. As soon as i rolled into downtob bb though, I knew i was onto something.
One guy hollered at me from his car saying he dug the swedish flag. First time that’s happened. Talked to him for a while, cool dude.
Then i see a couple my age walking down the street. I ask them about a campsite and we get talking. Turns out they’re going to stockholm in two weeks so i pretty much just traded them staying a few days in my apartment for a night on their couch. I knew this place was cool.
