Continuing North And Then East To The Coast

Myrtle Beach, SC.

56 deg. clear, W wind @ 4 mph.

Forecast = Abundant sunshine. High 78F. Winds WSW at 10 to 20 mph.

We left the Parkwood RV Park in Statesboro, Monday morning about 10:05 and continued Northeast on US 301. 301 took us up to the South Carolina state line and then to Allendale, where we turned SE on US 278. We followed 278 for about 15 miles to Hampton, SC where we turned East on Rt. 63. 63 brought us to Walterboro, SC and the New Green Acres RV Park. It was only about 101 miles over there so it only took us 2 hours and 15 minutes, arriving at about 12:20.

A nice short travel day. ;-)
Linda likes the big tall pine trees in this park, so we stop by here whenever we travel through the area.

The sites are very long and most of them are quite wide, so you have lots of room.

There's nothing fancy about this park, but the sites are quite level and easy to get into. The folks in the office have always been pleasant anytime we've been here and especially if you're traveling on I-95, it's very convenient as it's right off of the expressway.

We only stayed Monday night at the New Green Acres RV park so Yesterday morning, we left there about 9:45 and continued into Walterboro on Rt. 63. Jim and Linda knew of a gas station in town, so we pulled in there and bought Big RED a drink of that good old #2 diesel fuel.

In Walterboro, we picked up ALT US 17 and took that East out of town. Following ALT 17 brought us all the was over to Georgetown where ALT 17 joined up with US 17. 17 then brought us up here to Myrtle Beach and the Apache Family Campground.

Now, I have to say that ALT US 17 might not have been the best choice of roads. I'm guessing that about 1/4th of the the road was quite rough and as the road passed through Summerdale, there was a lot of traffic with many, many stop lights.

It was 1:20 when we pulled up to the office at the Apache Family CG, so it took us right at 3 hours and 20 minutes to travel the 152 miles over here.

Even though we didn't know for sure when we'd be able to leave Florida and head North for the summer, Jim took a chance and made a reservation for a waterfront site here at the Apache CG way back in March. It was good that he did, because all the other waterfront sites are taken.

If you remember, we stayed here last fall on our way down to Florida. We have a different site this time, (the one last fall was a pull-through and this one is a back-in), but we're still on one of the sites right next to the ocean. Jim hasn't taken any photos here yet, but I'm betting he'll do that today.

Did you know that  Myrtle Beach has been called the "Golf Capital of the World" because of the roughly 100 golf courses located there?

    Take a couple of deep breaths of that ocean air for me and enjoy your stay.
