We pulled out of our site at Bass Lake Campground before 9:30 and drove a few miles before stopping at a Flying J to fill up with diesel for $3.92 per gallon…..ouch. It is what it is, I guess.
The Bighorn next to us left before we did and when they did we noticed the unique rig that was on the other side of them. It was like a log home meets a shed placed on a trailer. We think it was home made…interesting.
We stopped for lunch about halfway into our 219 mile trek. Another very pretty rest area….this one in South Carolina. We enjoyed our lunch while watching a young family with 4 young ones play, capped and deployed some Munzees and enjoyed the gorgeous weather! Sure hoping that when we get to northern Florida we don’t get pummeled by super hot days!
About a month ago I called Lotts Island Army Airfield RV Park to make a reservation as they accept them 30 days out. This morning I called to ensure that all was good to go and was told to go to the park, find a spot and set up and then call them to figure out payment.
We arrived to find a very small park just inside the Rio Rd gate. We slowly weaved our way through the park and were concerned that we wouldn’t find a site even though I had called a reserved one. We finally came upon the only open site and found a long length of paper towel stretched across it with out name spray painted on it! Whew. We got pulled into the quite narrow spot with no problems. The whole area is very wooded with Spanish moss hanging from the trees and flowery vines hanging from the palmetto trees. Very pretty.
I called the MWR office once we were settled and made arrangements to go there tomorrow to settle up the fees for the week. That works well as we’ll stop at the commissary at that time too.
Lotts Island Army Airfield is located on Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia. We’ll be here for a week and hope to be able to do some sight-seeing as well as just plain old relaxing.
With all the tree cover we weren’t sure that we’d be able to get a satellite signal. Michael worked diligently and was able to get a signal using his 200 ft of coax cable and the app he has on his phone. Now we’re all set and the DVR can record all the new season premieres scheduled for next week! Just think…had he not been able to get a satellite signal we would have had to watch TV via the antenna….and actually watched shows as they aired…with commercials! Oh….the HORROR!
