    “3, 2, 1, GET LOST!”

    by Casey | Posted on November 3rd, 2011

    Get Lost in Loudoun CastDiscovering something unexpected is over-the-top fun, and a foursome tired of their ho-hum days of normalcy have set out to do just that.

    Sure, I can tell you all the awesome ways to Get Lost in Loudoun, but why not sit back and enjoy seeing how Andrew, Jolyn, Haley, and James get lost instead?

    Six episodes of nine have aired so far, and here, in a nutshell, is what you might have missed:

    Episode One includes an adrenaline-pumping paintball battle at Pev’s Paintball Park, one of the top 12 paintball parks in the world.

    Get Lost in Loudoun

    Episode Two finds the cast being coached through a pot-off with a surprise guest, Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, at Glenfiddich Farm Pottery.

    Episode Three is set at Great Country Farms, a 200-acre agritainment farm. Yes, they have successfully married agriculture and entertainment in Bluemont! Don’t believe me? I challenge you to a round of cow pie putt-putt.

    Episode Four tingles your spine as cast members take on an individual challenge at Oatlands Plantation - a challenge of paranormal proportions. Hey, what happened to James??

    Episode Five is a cook-off at Goodstone Inn, a sprawling estate with amazing history and farm-to-table cuisine by chef William Walton. Can the teams please the palates of local Loudoun foodies?

    In Episode Six, the most recent of the Get Lost in Loudoun series, Andrew, Haley, Jolyn, and James hit the rapids of the Potomac River with guides from BTI Whitewater. Um, they’re kind of a big deal.

    Now you’re up to speed and ready for next week’s episode, and you’ve got a leg up on just a few of the great gems of Virginia’s beautiful Loudoun County. Go watch the episodes and make a plan to visit and get lost for yourself.
