In any case, anyone who can keep up with 500+ journals is amazing. Even with a fraction of that number in my friends list, I tend to fall way behind when I travel.
Speaking of traveling, I checked the Motel 6 rates for some Hampton Roads cities and got the following:
Williamsburg - $30 per night Newport News - $40 per night Chesapeake - $46 per night Norfolk - $56 per nightThe Chesapeake location is a good compromise. It's near the Greenbrier Mall and I-64 so it's actually pretty good. The Norfolk location is closer to the center of it all but the difference is only about 5 miles. Considering that I'm driving 450 miles to get there, 5 miles is nothing. Anyway, I'll think about this for a few days before making a reservation.
