Happy Halloweenie from Fort Mills, South Carolina

Hello Everyone!

We woke up this am to a quiet we hadn't heard since we headed out on our journey Sunday.  Tuning into the News and taking in what was being said about the weather - We decided it was time to pull up stakes and go forth to our next destination safely.

Roads not bad at all.
The snow that had fallen yesterday was but a mere memory when we opened up the blinds and looked out.  All that was left was wet soggy leaves and traces of the white stuff here and there.

All kinds of trees taken down by the storm.
Everything is quickly put away, Paul handling the outside stuff and me doing what needs to be done on the inside and just like that we are ready to hit the road.  Next stop - Charleston, SC but if we have to stop we will - safety above all - Is Imperative!

Stopped to fill up the bus at a Plaza in West Virginia and can't believe how much snow this area got compared to where we came from - different elevations in the mountains means the amount of snow will vary!  While we are pumping gas, we decide to grab a quick lunch at the Burger King and back on the road we go.

We cross into Virginia around 11:30am and contemplate if we want to continue or make reservations - Making reservations at the Fort Mill KOA in South Carolina wins out, so I make the phone call and get confirmation for our spot for the night.

Business as usual!
As we continue along I-77, the sun comes out and it is so blinding - we are squinting like crazy.  It had been several days since we had seen the sun shine.  Then we realize - No rain pelting the windshield - we hit the Jackpot.  It was still quite windy as Paul had to fight the wheel a bit throughout the drive today.

Along the way
Driving through North Carolina was a treat as we saw beautiful skies, some color but above all - No Snow!  Looking around as we travel the road, we see construction projects, boats on lifts along the water way and some beautiful homes as well.

Paul getting us all hooked up!
The KOA we chose was right across the State line and we got in about 2:45pm.  Getting all set up seems to be getting easier and easier for us which is a good thing.  As we sit around and decide what we want for dinner - it is a toss up between Steak N Shake and Sonny's BBQ.  Sonny's BBQ won out and so we get into the Jeep and cross back into North Carolina.

We are back in for the night and I decide to get some walking in before it gets to dark around the Park.  As I go around, I notice older kids parking their vehicles and going towards an area in the campground that looks to be a Haunted House for the evening.  I was trying to figure out if they were part of the festivities or going for the fun - I decided it must be something for the older kids as I didn't see any little ones around.

Time to close for the night.  We have cable here so - more channels to chose from - tho my channel of choice is ABC - good comedies! 

Have a great night!  Enjoy the ghosts and goblins that come to your door.  And if you go out - Be Safe and Have Fun!

Take Care and God Bless!

Much Love,
