2016's Stop 18: Bland and Wythe counties

Stop 18 on the Virginia Proud Weather Tour took Jeff Haniewich to Big Walker Lookout on Monday.

Big Walker Lookout and Country Store is a family owned business and has been since it started nearly 70 years ago.

The parents of Ron Kime, the current owner, opened the doors to the store in 1947.

Every Saturday and Sunday, there's music on the porch at the store until October 29 from 12-4 p.m.

On Tuesday, the tour will go to Evergreen to take a look back and forward from the February 24 tornado that hit the area.
