Day 8: Move over!!

Congratulations! Virginia wins the award for most drivers camping out in the passing lane on the interstate. Move over, already!

We've put in a few miles on the road all over this country and every year we come here and find people putzing along in the left lane with no clue that they're backing up traffic. With some gentle reminders -- a tap on the horn or flashing of lights -- they just wave as we pass on the right.

Other than that and the convoy of semis on I-81, the trip up the Shenandoah Valley is amazing. This is some of the most beautiful stretch of interstate in the U.S. -- along with the stretch of I-40 between Albuquerque and Gallup in New Mexico.

We're in our nation's capitol today! Cherry blossoms here we come!

Um, Jim, I don't think you've driven much in Florida. The land when you frequently see a car being driven solely by a hat and two hands.
