A cancelled NASCAR event that was rescheduled for the following day in Richmond, VA caused a N0 vacancy situation an hour north and south of Richmond. We were heading to Myrtle Beach and encountered this predicament just north of Richmond. It was suggested to us to start looking again when we get to Petersburg. VA. The first motel we stopped...
