This thread with all the "NOVA" posts is quite interesting... it is a small world! My folks are in Springfield and have been saying "we're gonna move out of this congestion" since I graduated high school in 92.

Anyway, we're now in Roanoke and have the luxury of attending all VT home games without burning vacation or spending tons of $$ on hotels. (Lived in Horseheads, NY last 2 seasons and made all but 1 home game UGH!) Moving to Roanoke was definatley a quality of life decision.

DH and I are also engineers, he's ME, I'm IE... if you even consider that true engineering.

I hear Tech is getting more and more competitive so congrats to your youngest... and if you ever need a semi-local connection for her feel free to shoot me a note.

whose wardrobe has plenty of orange/maroon combinations!

P.S. Sam's Club in Roanoke generally has an entire table of cheap Hokie gear.
