6 months on the road

Tuesday April 15…9:15pm

So we had parked last night at the Walmart at Carlisle Pennsylvania. I got up at about 6:50am and it was chilly…temperature at the bedside was 5C (40F) so I put on the kettle to make coffee and tea, and started getting Sherman ready to move. I pulled back the front curtains and saw a small brown envelope on the windshield and I could read “Carlisle Police Dept” on the front of it.

Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Monday April 14…11:00pm

Got up at 7am and drove to a nearby spot where we could get internet access. It’s starting to get cold in the morning…temperature at the bedside was 8C (46F) when we woke up. So it’s good to drive a little first thing…it warms up Sherman, and then we have our coffee and breakfast without having to put the furnace on.

Greenbelt Park, Maryland (day 3)

Sunday Apr 13…10:00pm

Walked down to the subway station again this morning. Walking quickly, it took about 25 minutes. We took the train to a different area this time, a few minutes walk from the Capitol building. This is Washington’s version of the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. And, as in Ottawa, it’s very impressive looking, although on the east side of the building they are building a visitors center, and the construction kind of takes away from it all.

Greenbelt Park, Maryland (day 2)

Saturday Apr 12…7:00pm

We had a big thunderstorm shortly after going to bed last night. And some gusts of wind…the guy near us had his satellite internet dish blow over. Sometimes we miss tent camping, but when it’s raining and windy it sure is nice to be in a motorhome!

Greenbelt Park, Maryland

Friday April 11…10:00pm

I slept with no problems last night, but Ruth said she heard the traffic a fair bit. Either way, we were up at 7am, and on the road pretty much right away. We stopped at around 9am for breakfast and internet. Our goal was still to get to Greenbelt Park outside of Washington, and because we travel on the side roads, we don’t make very good time.

Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Thursday April 10…11:00pm

Left Kinston this morning at about 8:30am, and sure enough, there wasn’t anybody around to collect our money. Funny system….we would have been only too happy to pay, but they don’t even provide a box or some system of paying when you arrive or leave after hours. Oh well.

Kinston, North Carolina

Wednesday April 9…11:15pm

Sitting having breakfast this morning, and I’m looking out the window at the new water hose the guy across the way had given us…and it’s leaking! At the same spot the last one was! As I sat drinking my coffee and wondering how it could

Myrtle Beach State Park

Tuesday April 8…10:45pm

Today we drove the 100 miles or so to Myrtle Beach. The state park is on the far south side of town. It’s a large park, with over 350 sites. We didn’t have a reservation, which turned out to be okay, although this park does get very busy at times.

Charleston, South Carolina

Monday April 7…11:00pm

Katherine lent us one of her cars for the day. We drove about 12 miles south to the “Angel Oak”, which is a huge oak tree that they figure is 1,200 to 1,400 years old. It’s absolutely amazing. See pictures. Then, we went into Charleston.

Folly Beach (day 3)

Sunday April 6…11:00pm

Woke up to the birds singing and the dogs barking. No wind this morning, and the sun was shining, so being a Sunday it’s going to be busy on the beach. Katherine had gone surfing early this morning, and so we walked with Whiskey

Folly Beach (day 2)

Saturday Apr 5…11:00pm

Took dogs for a walk this morning…two at a time. Then went for a nice bike ride about 4 km’s out to the point of the island where there is a lighthouse. Some people fishing out there, but it’s cloudy and windy so not many sunbathers or swimmers.

Folly Beach

Friday Apr 4…10:30pm

We drove from Hilton Head Island to Folly Beach, which is very close to Charleston, South Carolina. Folly Beach is on Folly Island. Uneventful drive…the scenery of marshy swampland doesn’t do much for us. If you’re a bird lover, you’d probably appreciate that kind of scenery…but birds don’t do anything for me either.

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Thursday Apr 3…11:00pm

Drove to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina today. There’s no really easy way to get here, and we don’t like the scenery on the interstate highways, so we ended up going right through Savannah, Georgia and taking some backroads

Brunswick, Georgia

Wednesday Apr 2…11:00pm

Left Huguenot Park at about 8am. They have nasty noseeum flies there…other than that, it was a nice park. Those little sand gnats bite you one day…but the bite doesn’t start to itch until a day or two later. And I find the itch worse than a typical mosquito bite. So I’m sure we’ll pay for it tomorrow or the next day.

Huguenot Park (day 2)

Tuesday April 1…9:45pm

Went for a long walk along the beach this morning. The tide was out and the sand seemed to go on forever. This park has a day use area where the cars can drive right onto the beach, so we walked the entire length back around to the campground. As the morning went on, a lot of cars went into the day use area. We never did wander back over there, but it looked really busy.
