Back To Dillon South Carolina and A Short But Hard Travel Day

Dillon, SC.

69 deg. overcast, N. wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy. Isolated showers this afternoon. Highs in the lower 80s. Southwest winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent. 80 percent chance of rain tonight.

Because we only stayed at the Rock Ridge CG for one night and Jim and Linda didn't get much stuff out, it was a simple matter to get me ready to travel again. In fact, even by taking their time, we still pulled out of the CG by 9:55.

We only had 121 miles to travel, and it only took us 2 hours to get to the Bass Lake Campground, but it was a hard travel day.

I-95 was good all the way down here, it was a nice bright day with many periods of sunshine, but there were very gusty winds, (which normally don't bother me too much), and the people were driving goofy. I don't know how many times cars were driving right along side of me and not passing. Then we would come up behind some slower traffic and that car would be there so that Jim had to slow me down, wait until a line of cars and trucks passed before I could pass the slower traffic. There were also a whole bunch of trucks that were traveling very slow for some reason, so we were having to pass them, when usually the trucks pass us.

By the time we arrived here in Dillon, Jim was more tired than he had been after traveling more than 3 hours the day before. : (

So, after Jim and Linda got me set up, he took a nap! ; )

We stayed here just a month ago on our way up to NC to see Mike and his family so I knew what to expect. This is also a nice park, but the area where the 50 amp sites are does not have any shade trees at all and it's really too close to the Interstate.

This first picture is of the entrance to the park

and this second one is of my site.

As you can see, there are trees in the area right behind me.

The people running the park are very friendly and with a Passport America rate of less than $20 a night, it's a good place to stay.

We'll be here for 2 nights.

Did you know that November is Banana Pudding Lovers Month?

  1. If you did 121 miles in two hours, you were really moving down the highway!
