Still In South Carolina and Wishing Dave A Speedy Recovery

Dillon, SC

55 deg. clear, S. wind @ 6 mph.

Forecast = Sunny. Highs in the mid 80s. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

Not a real lot to report today. We left the New Green Acres park in Walterboro about 9:50 yesterday morning and continued North on I-95.  137 miles and 2 hours and 35 minutes later, we were pulling up to the office at the Bass Lake Campground here in Dillon, SC.

It was a short travel day, but our next stop is at a Campground over by Apex, NC and that's another 2 hours away, and that would have made, (for Jim and Linda), a fairly long travel day.

Besides, Jim had called the CG over there the other day to make sure that there were sites available and told them that we wouldn't be there until today.

The Bass Lake CG is very nice and well maintained, but again sits right along side of the Interstate, so that there's constant road noise. The couple running the CG are very nice and even led me to my site and made sure that I was happy with the site.

The site I have is a pull-through site that's long enough that CLT didn't have to be unhooked. There's not a whole lot of shade here, but some areas of the CG have lots of shade, if that's what you're looking for. It's a Passport America Park, so even though it's a full hook-up site with 50 amps, it only cost Jim $17.44 for the night. : )

On a different note . . . . . Jim, Linda and I want to wish Dave, (one of the Illinois Bunch), a speedy recovery from the triple by-pass surgery that he had this last Wednesday. It sounds like the operation went well but now the recovery begins and I would guess that part is going to be pretty hard for Dave as he is a very active person.

Take care Dave.  Get well, we'll see you down in Florida. ; )

Did you know that Duncan Park Baseball Stadium in Spartanburg is the oldest minor league stadium in the nation?

  1. We stayed in Bass Lake on our way to Florida last March. just overnight. Nice folks. They had no sites available, but let us boondock in their field for $10.00.
