Revised Southeast Plans

Took the "opportunity" of a head cold to hang out in the RV today, cleaning, doing laundry and planning the next week. Now that the rally is over, our heads are clear for the next leg, and here's what we're thinking. If you have any other suggestions, we're all ears!

Monday: Assateague National Seashore (camping on MD side where the wild horses are, apparently, frequent visitors to the campground)

Tuesday: First Landings Seashore State Park near Virginia Beach (with the potentially white knuckle drive in the RV across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel. Hope it's not windy!)

Wednesday: Forecast is for rain, so we think we'll tool our way over to I-95 and catch some NC BBQ trail for lunch and stay somewhere around Fayettesville.

Thursday: On the way to Charleston, take a hike through Congaree National Park, weather permitting. Too bad we haven’t bought that kayak we keep talking about...yet. But the hike will be nice.

Friday and Saturday in Charleston, staying at the county park, which has a shuttle into town. Possible activities:
The route we're taking gets us a bunch of new state stickers to affix (MD, DE, DC, VA, NC, SC). I know our neighbors back home will be happy to see the map getting filled in ;-) Note that later on we'll be adding KY, IN, IL.

Then it's on to Orlando and St. Augustine the following week, where we're all set with campgrounds and activities. So, let us know if you have any suggestions for the MD-VA-NC-SC leg!


  1. We loved James Island Park, and camped there in Dec 2007 in the middle of the Christmas display. A favorite, however, is Edisto Island, not far south of Charleston, with campsites just behind the dunes. Coffee on the water at dawn was perfect. Have a great trip!

  2. We plan to move to First Landing today and will be there a few days while we wait for parts for a refrigerator recall. We could acutally meet face to face!
