While Rob was gone on the detachment, Virginia Tech just happened to have a Thursday night game against Georgia Tech in Atlanta! Since Blair's husband was gone on the detachment as well, we decided to make a quick trip to the ATL to see Danielle and watch the Hokies play!
We left Thursday morning and got in town just as Danielle was getting off work. We headed to the Virginia Tech Atlanta Alumni tailgate at the Brickhouse. We got to hang out with the Hokie bird and even meet the athletic director, Whit Babcock.
We walked a few blocks to the stadium and headed in to the game. While it wasn't Lane Stadium, it was exciting to see the Hokies play and to watch Frank Beamer in action one last time. The game was a nail biter but we ended up with seats right behind the end zone to savor a Hokie win! It was the perfect little getaway to break up the detachment.
