Redwolf, I second Bob"s reply. Much to see and do in all areas of the state. Please be aware that It gets very hot and humid in Va. during August as in most of the southern half of the country. Welcome to the TMO site. Ron

Redwolf, I third the last 2 replies. I have been living here 56 years, and still have a lot to see. From the Appalachian Mountains in the west, across the Shenandoah Valley, over the Blue Ridge Mountains, across the Piedmont section to the Tidewater area, you get all kinds of things to see and do.

The National Forests of Western Virginia: Mostly dry camping with scattered campgrounds, and beside the back road camping if you prefer. Plenty of hiking trails.

The Shenandoah Valley. Natural Bridge, plenty of caverns (Luray, Endless, Grand, Shenandoah, Skyline), canoeing or tubing on the Shenandoah, Natural Bridge, etc.

Blue Ridge Mountains: The Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive run down the spine of the mountains. The Appalachian Trail runs the length of Virginia.

Also consider the Presidential Trail (http://www.woodrowwilson.org/visit/v...?doc_id=607855) and Revoluntionary and Civil War battlefields.

Since I live in Western Virginia, I will leave it up the Eastern Virginia members to fill you in more on that side of the commonwealth.

A set of square drive drivers (I think there are 3 sizes in a common set) costs only a few bucks. I'm thinking less than $5 from someplace like Harbor Freight, and maybe $10 from Ace Hardware. In my opinion, it is worthwhile. A stripped screw is an instant problem.

You sure hit the nail on the head, Bill. I do find the proper connector easier to use, once I identified which one it was.

Thanks,

I believe the tool is a No.2 square head driver.
