Travel Day 2 - South Carolina / Georgia

We both hit the blankies a bit before 10 PM last night and slept well.  I awoke around 7 AM with Dave regaining consciousness a bit after 9 AM.  We were on the road shortly before 11 AM, taking our time getting ready; that included a couple of nice chats with our next-door neighbors.  Yes, I have missed being around people, especially RVers.

We stopped at the SC/GA state line for a gander at the Georgia Visitor Center

This place is huge!  We think it’s the nicest visitor center we’ve encountered.

It’s Agriculture Week with various displays.

The two ladies running the center were very nice, indeed.  Dave scored some free coffee and we each came away with a bottle of water and a package of Georgia peanuts each.  The peanuts hit the spot as we cruised on down I-20 West; they were some of the freshest salted peanuts I have ever tasted.

We stopped for fuel once at a Pilot.  It’s Pilot and Flying J for us these days; we have a fuel discount card and it’s easy in/easy out.  No more maneuvering the rig in and out of tiny convenience stores.  Yay!  This makes for a very less stressed drive for me.

We still have not encountered rain and I really am grateful for that.  In fact, the high today was around 72F with partly overcast and partly sunny skies.  A nice day for a drive, actually.

We rolled into Country Boys RV Park shortly before 3 PM, clocking 152.8 miles and about three hours trip time, including the stops.

I really am enjoying these short hops each day.  We arrived without feeling beat up from the road, emptied our tanks, refilled our fresh tank, had a walk about, visited with neighbors and I threw something together for dinner.  Dave is watching a DVD and I’m here chatting with you.

The park is on two levels; this is looking down at the lower level sites.  We’re on the upper, which includes a long line of pull-thru sites for overnighters.

There are quite a few permanent rigs in here, probably worker bees.

The photos are dark because that’s how it really is outside.  It has been very gray all afternoon.

Well, I need to call my uncle in Minnesota; I’m checking in with him each day after we land.  He’s following along on his atlas.  He and my aunt were RVers back in their day.  See?  I told you this runs in my family.  I’ll post this and then just chill out the rest of this evening.

  1. Don't think I've ever been to that Visitors Center. I especially like the one on I-10 heading east in Louisiana, especially around Mardi Gras time.

  2. Those are the kind of travel days I like too. We have the pilot card for the same reason. Sounds like you are really enjoying your trip.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment!
