It was 10:10 by the time left Forest City yesterday morning and headed North on US 64. We followed 64 up to I-40 near Morganton. Then we followed 40 all the way over to Greensboro, where we turned off on I-73, took it down to I-85 and then took 85 east to US 421, where we turned SE on it and took it down to Sanford. At Sanford, we turned NE on US 1 and followed it up here to Moncure and the Dickens RV Park.
It was right at 2:00 when we pulled in, so it took us 3 hours and 50 minutes to travel 212 miles.
The Dickens RV Park is nothing special. Most of the sites are out in the open and there's no grass or trees anywhere near. I do, however, have full hook-ups with 50 amp electric and it's only costing about $15 per night with the Passport America discount. : )
For Jim and Linda, it's the best park to stay at while visiting Mike and his family.
It was really hot and muggy when we arrived yesterday, so after getting me positioned in my site, Jim just hooked me up to electric. Today, he'll hook up the rest of the utilities.
About 5:00 CLT (Cute Little Truck), took Jim and Linda over to Mike and Gina's house. Both Jim and Linda said that it was really good to see them and the grand kids again. It's been a year since we've been here and they both said that all 3 of the kids have really grown. : )
After a very nice meal, everyone visited for awhile and then about 8:00 CLT brought Jim and Linda back here to the park.
Both Jim and Linda were tired, so after watching some of the news, they headed to bed.
This evening, they'll be heading back over to Mike and Gina's again.
Did you know that Moncure once served ast the western-most inland port in North Carolina, linked all the way to the coast by steamships?
