Cautions: Cell phones, unless they are Verizon, and navigation systems sometimes fizzle out in this rural area.  WAZE on a Verizon phone seems to work well, and Google Maps has improved — see link above. Please DO NOT go onto Roger Road (it leads to a river) and DO NOT go to Dobbins Hollow in Pilot, VA. : )
