On Saturday, I drove down to Warrenton where I was helping Habitat for Humanity build a house. It was a blitz build, the whole home being completed over the weekend, and they had plenty of volunteers to help. I got there by 1pm and was impressed to see that the walls were up and the roof being installed. They had some groups helping them who were very experienced in house building and had manged to get a great start on the property. I hoisted my tool belt onto my hips and sauntered down the hill towards them, the weight of the tools making me walk like John Wayne.
completed on Sunday afternoon, they had actually started on Friday. It looked awesome!
I had planned on going back to the house the next morning but the heavy lifting combined with the weight of my tool belt had left my back and hips feeling really sore. So I decided to explore down Route 11 instead, one of my favorite routes.
