It took two nights, but the blog has now walked the length of Chickasha Road. Last night the starting point was the Vienna Elementary School parking lot. It seems hard to believe given that this school is 7.5 miles from 2700 St. Claire Rd, but this was Nate's school of assignment when he entered the Forsyth Country School system. It is now clear, however, why this school alone had space for a new second grader - it is located in a relatively underdeveloped, underpopulated area of beautiful pylons, streets leading to nowhere called "trails," and horse farms. The blog enjoyed its walks in the country, but now yearns to return to urban Winston-Salem...(Jon, we missed a few of the so-called trails).
