WAY TO GO FORUM MEMBER! (and 40 photos to boot!)

Home of the Week: Bob and Jenny Offutt
Springfield News-Leader
The Crystal Cove Bed and Breakfast began as a family's dream, inspired by the family's annual Branson vacations. “His dad used to bring him here to Compton Ridge Campgrounds when he was a little kid,” Jenny Offutt says, referring to her husband, Bob.

The "VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS" was one of the first states with a slogan, and from that came the copycat (but ended up better) "I love NY" and many others.
Dave Martin of the Martin Agency, and the founder of the Virginia is for Lovers campaign, has passed away at age 82.
We have had guests from this agency in Richmond VA stay with us, you will also recognize the GEICO ads and many others from this agency. http://www.martinagency.com/home

Congrats, Bob on the article! Loved all the photos, but the weather rock reminded me of all our Scouting campouts.

My nephew (the one that attended VA Tech when I first met you JB) worked for the Martin Agency. I'll have to check with him and see if he knows about this. They have done some cool ads.
