Get Ready DC, We Are On Our Way!

Dad and I wanted to have the title read "Peeing Our Way Across The South", but Mama said "No" to that.  We traveled through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and stopped in South Carolina and peed in every state.  The rest stop in Mississippi was just a parking spot with lots of weeds. I guess the economy has hurt them and they have closed rest areas. Alabama had a nice rest area. An ambulance came while we were there and checked out a guy. We think he was just trying to take a nap on a picnic table.  He had a pillow and his radio.  We stopped in Georgia at a gas station and checked it out. It was nice.  Actually, there was no one else there. It was the easiest gas stop we have had. So far, we have not had any issues at gas stations. We just filled up this morning and we just have to make one more gas stop and we will be in DC.

A neat cloud.  It looked pink and blue.

Georgia Welcome sign

Missed the sign in South Carolina.

We left at 7 a.m. and arrived at our campground at 8 p.m.  The folks forgot about the time change, so that is why it was 8 p.m.and not 7 p.m. as planned. We didn't eat dinner until 8:45 p.m.   Mama wasn't thrilled about that.  If we were traveling on our own schedule, we wouldn't be on the road for 12 hours. We just need to get there.  Mama microwaved a Jack Daniels' BBQ Shredded Beef for dinner and said it was delicious. We didn't have any.

The RV park we stayed at last night was for SENIORS over 45. LOL   Mama didn't know she was a senior. Dad was all excited about staying there. It was a let down though.  The campground itself was nice and open, but the sites were not very nice.  We barely saw it though, so no big deal.  The map shows they have trails and a lake. It looks like the long term people have a nicer area than what we did.


Area for campfire

Big open field to play in.



Swing under big tree.  There were a few of these.

Another view of the swing.
There was a big dog show nearby and all the people next to us had show dogs. The one guy said they had nine Golden Retrievers in his motor home. He has a toy hauler and the dogs were all in crates.
This is the camper that had 9 dogs inside.  They have 3 more dogs at home.


We are currently in North Carolina making our way to Virginia. We should be stopping around 5 p.m., if all goes well.

We Are No Longer RVers

Our motorhome has new owners. They took ownership of it today.  They are probably reading through all the manuals and trying out all the...
