Thanks to Hurricane Irene, we arrived home a day early: Instead of visiting Wake Forest University yesterday and watching the Winston-Salem Dash play baseball last night, we traveled yesterday from Durham, North Carolina to our home in the Philadelphia suburbs via an inland route that avoided any hurricane-related traffic jams along the coasts.

Among the highlights of the trip -- in addition to visiting six beautiful undergraduate institutions -- were: (1) breakfast at Dahlia Lithwick's house!; (2) experiencing the earthquake centered at nearby Mineral, Virginia from our room on the sixth floor of the Omni Hotel in Charlottesville; (3) visiting Appomattox Court House; (4) taking a tour of Naval Station Norfolk; and (5) traveling over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.

Our trip took us to see the following schools, listed in the order that we visited them: The College of William & Mary; the University of Richmond; the University of Virginia; the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Duke University; and Davidson College.

Finally, my favorite meal of the trip was the pan roasted NC red grouper that I enjoyed at Nana's of Durham.

Aside from an occasional day-trip to see colleges in New York City and the Baltimore-Washington, DC areas that may occur over the upcoming academic year, our next big college expedition likely will occur next summer on a pre-senior year journey to New England and upstate New York.
