Man, these forums are so different from when I started 13 years ago.
It's summertime in the south. Things naturally move more slowly.

I'll offer a talking point to resuscitate the idea, though: Looking for places within orbit of Atlanta/Greenville to take the kids this year. Unique and neat parks, bike trails, etc. I'm scouring the internet for suggestions on waterfall hikes and such but more ideas are always welcome. Thinking along the lines of outdoor day trips and cost-effective adventures compared to the usual places like Gatlinburg.

Also, any good places for beginning bouldering? The boy loves to climb but indoor facilities prohibit kids <13 yo from doing their free climb stuff. Would love to find a park with some nice pockets of exposed rock face that he could climb for a good while and text his mettle.

New population projections out till 2045 released last month by the Weldon Cooper Center at UVA. Looks like cities are growing more slowly overall than the state average (due to lack of annexation, the continuing surge in population among outlying Northern Virginia Counties, and decline or stagnation of Southwest Virginia and Hampton Roads cities), but at least my city Lynchburg is expected to grow above the state average and possibly surpass 100,000 people by 2045! I included Arlington County since it is a city in all but name with nearly 9,000 people per square mile as of the 2016 Census estimate. Of course these projections are far from exact, but it gives a picture as to what cities are losing and what cities are gaining in population.

I saw this license plate in Chesterfield, VA. This has to be the rarest plate in the US. Could it be the rarest plate in the world?

I have actually seen a few Guam plates on occasion here in Jacksonville and is more than likely because of a recent military transfer. But yeah that GTMO Bay plate is rather rare to say the least especially there in Chesterfield.
