Our arrival in Virginia coincided with the arrival of none other than… Magicicada Brood II. Actually, Brood II arrived a few days before we did.
Our driving day was another one of those rainy days, truth be told, we’ve had quite a few rainy driving days throughout our journey, but it’s typically a light rain as it was this time around. We arrived at our campsite in a pretty wooded area of Virginia near Washington D.C. in the late afternoon. The rain subsided prior to our arrival and allowed us to set up at the campsite, it was a minimal set up as we were only going to be there a few days. We walked Angel and called it a day. Nothing unusual.
The next morning, I noticed some beetles around the campsite. I’m not too crazy about beetles, but I felt pretty confident that I could avoid them.
