Sadler State Park South Carolina June 4th 2017

Sadler State Park turned out to be quite a gem, 395 Acres of beautiful forests on a peninsula of Lake Hartwell (56,000 acres).  We stayed on Loop #1, site # 1, a pull through that abutts up to the water. After quickly setting up, little man and I took a walk down to the beach… Continue reading Sadler State Park South Carolina June 4th 2017

Flat Tire  6-4-17

Thump, thump.  Flat tire on US1!  The front left passenger side of the camper suffered a flat tire.  Actually, flat is an understatement-it was shredded.  Not to worry, Capt. Jim was totally prepared.  The best tool he carried was an impact wrench, as it made quick work of the lugnuts.  He was a Pit Stop… Continue reading Flat Tire  6-4-17

Gordonia State Park, Georgia

Gordonia State Park was hard to find due to poor signage.  We almost missed it.  There was a separate entrance that we happened on while heading to Walmart.  We followed the GPS even though the sign on the road said “Dead End.”  It wasn’t a Dead End.  Go figure. It has a lot to offer;… Continue reading Gordonia State Park, Georgia

No coffee in the house

Saturday,  June 3rd,  2017 After an uneventful, quiet night at Laura S Walker State Park we are once again on the road. Having no coffee “in the house” causes one to pack quickly and efficiently. The gas problem was solved five miles down the road in a teeny tiny town called Hoboken. I kid you… Continue reading No coffee in the house

The people are home but no lights are on

Friday June 2nd, 180 miles into the trip. How can a whole town be without electricity? We stopped for lunch along Highway 121, Brandy Branch Road AKA Brady Brunch Road, according to Captain Jim. It was a quaint, meaning tiny, little gas station. We pulled in and decided to have some lunch and a much-needed… Continue reading The people are home but no lights are on

Here we go again

Friday 6/2/2017  Away on another adventure exploring the unknown and revisiting some known. The traveling Willoughby’s leave the misty, overcast humidity of Florida and head for Roan Mountain, Tennessee. Days of last-minute appointments, end-of-year school prep, airport excursions, family visits and of course, packing, has left us subdued, but most definitely ready for the peace and… Continue reading Here we go again
