Day Eight - Left our cosy little spot in the middle of woop woop and continued on toward North Carolina. We weren't sure about timing and didn't want to get to North Carolina too late in the evening so decided that we would travel about 4 or 5 hours and then find a nice spot with say 2 hrs left for the final leg to NC tomorrow.
Copped a fair bit of rain today so was not too suitable for sight seeing so the only stops we made were for some shopping in Atlanta so the girls could get some retail therapy, and the few meal stops. Took our time today after the night driving episode the other day and enjoyed the beautiful countryside of Georgia. It is almost like being in another world with all the fur tree forests that cover the undulating landscape.
This is a really beautiful area of the US and such a contrast to the flat desert areas of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Dallas was really the end of the desert area where the greenery really started and as we moved east through Tennessee and Georgia into South Carolina the magnificent treed areas were so beautiful.
So we sorted ourselves with a refuel, checked generator oil etc. and sought out a nice RV park again in the forests and found this amazing location at Bass Lake, South Carolina.
The park didn't have a lot of RV's there and was really quiet with sprawling lawns and huge pine trees. Got ourselves a good spot and settled in after doing all our hookup.
Tomorrow will be the day that I catch up with an old mate from my Air Force days that I have not seen in over 40 years. Last year at our RAAF 40 year reunion the boys managed to get a Skype hookup with Enzo in the United States, that's where he lives now in North Carolina. So in the morning it will be a quick unhook and off for the next 2 hours drive, so we thought. We checked out the google maps and turns out we stopped just 45 minutes short of his destination, just can't trust those google maps.
Alright off for a bit of tv before hitting the sack and looking forward to tomorrow. Night for now.
