North Carolina To South Carolina and Remembering Those Who Served

Lugoff, SC.

48 deg. fog, no wind.

Forecast = Foggy early, becoming sunny this afternoon. High 69F. Winds light and variable.

It did rain all day on Monday, so I'm glad that we waited until yesterday to leave Moncure. It was raining early in the morning, but by about 7:00, it stopped and the sun even started to peek through the clouds by the time we left at 10:05.

It was just a short drive to US 1 where we turned South and followed it all the way down into South Carolina and to Camden, where we pulled into the Columbia / Camden RV Park. Except for a few sections US 1 was in good condition all the way and even with a pit stop along the way, we traveled the 159 miles down here in 3 hours and 15 minutes, arriving at 1:20 PM.

Not bad considering all the small towns along the way and the fact that Rt 1 is mostly a 2 lane road.

We've been to the Columbia / Camden RV Park before. It's an OK park for an overnight stay. Our site, (#22) is not real level so Jim had to put a couple boards under the right-side tires, but it is a full hook-up pull-thru site that was easy to get into and will be easy to get out of. And, the lady in the office was very friendly and helpful, answering Jim's inquiry about the local road conditions in the area.

Today, the plan is to head down into Georgia.  Not sure yet which roads we'll be taking, but it will be a US route and not the Interstate. :-)

Please take a moment to remember all the Veterans, past and present who have given so much for our Country. Many have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we could remain free.  

Did You Know that In 1921, the United States began honoring it's war dead. However, November 11th did not become a legal federal holiday until 17 years later in 1938?
