Little River Campground

Just outside of Ft. Payne, Alabama lies a quiet and most pleasing campground.  We found Little River Canyon Campground on the Passport America app.  We had driven quite a ways and was ready for a break. The campground wasn’t hard to find and was fairly close to Ft. Payne, which made day trips to town… Continue reading Little River Campground

Cherokee Rock

After a great fail trying to get to Chief Ladiga campground Captain Jim used freecampsites.net and found Cherokee Rock Campgrounds (Alabama.)  It wasn’t far from where we were and had promising reviews.  Hmmm? Although we did not encounter anymore Bridge Out signs we did have to endure a quite steep, narrow entrance road to the… Continue reading Cherokee Rock

Flat Tires and Jonathan Dickinson State Park (Old Post, Never Published!)

We headed to Jonathan Dickinson State Park via 95 then in Jupiter switched over to the turnpike. Most of this trip was unevenful except that near Titusville we had a flat tire on the camper. I say flat but truthfully it didn’t go flat. The outer tread was stripped completely off the tire, hanging by… Continue reading Flat Tires and Jonathan Dickinson State Park (Old Post, Never Published!)

Campground Nowhere

Last night we stopped at a county park campground in Bastom, Alabama, called Neal’s Landing. This campground was an unmarked almost free campground. We found it on the site https://freecampsites.net/. We had to use their directions because Google tried to take us somewhere else. That somewhere was an exercise in determination and patience for Capt.… Continue reading Campground Nowhere

On the Road Again

Another school year done, another summer to begin.  This year promises to be quite interesting as we are changing things up a bit.  Normally, Capt. Jim prefers to make reservations for the whole summer.  This year we are “winging it.”  NO RESERVATIONS!  We plan on heading north, northish.  (Originally we were to go to Colorado… Continue reading On the Road Again

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

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
