North Carolina To Virginia

Virginia Beach, VA.

52 deg. scattered clouds, no wind.

Forecasts = Partly cloudy. High of 75F. Winds from the SSE at 10 to 15 mph.

Everything went well and by 8:50 we were pulling out of the Dickens RV Park and heading the 3 or 4 miles back to US 1. Once on 1, we took it NE and up to the Raleigh area, where it joined up with US 64. We then took US 64/I-440 around the city until 64 headed East from the city. Then we followed 64 over to Rocky Mount, where we tuned North on I-95. 95 took us up into Virginia where we stopped at a Love's Truck Stop near Skippers, VA. to get me a drink of that good old #2 diesel fuel. : )

Again, everything went well at the station and soon we were back out on I-95 and heading to Emporia, where we turned East on US 58. 58 took us to Portsmouth where we turned South on I-64 and took it around the South side of the City. After 64 took us around to Virginia Beach, we turned East on I-264 and took it East towards downtown Virginia Beach. When we came to 1st Colonial, (exit 21), we turned South on it and followed it down to the Holiday Trav-L-Park.

It was 1:15 when we pulled up in front of the office, so it took us 4 hours and 25 minutes to travel 230 miles and stop for my drink.

Not too shabby!!! ; )

The Holiday Trav-L-Park is a huge park. When we were here a year ago, I was in site # 107 and this time I'm in site 255, but they actually have over 800 RV sites in the park!!

An RV could get lost in this place!!! : O

After getting me set up in my full hook-up site with 50 amp electric and after relaxing a little, Jim took a little nap. Then, about 4:00, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over to Joe and Nancy's. After all the h and h, (hugs and handshakes), and some visiting, everyone enjoyed a great spaghetti and meatball dinner that Nancy made.

After dinner, it was more visiting before CLT brought them back here to the Park.

Today, Joe, Nancy and the girls are going to be busy so Jim and Linda will not be going over there. It's time for Linda to get her prescriptions refilled again, so she and Jim are planning on getting that accomplished. Jim still needs to get me hooked up to the sewer connection, so I imagine he'll do that today.

As of this morning, I have a very weak signal on the AT&T air card here at the park. So far it has held the signal while I've been typing this post. We're in a different area of the park than we were a year ago, so maybe I'll be able to post regularly.

I hope so.

Did you know that the first peanuts grown in the United States were grown in Virginia?

  1. We were at Carolina Crossroads yesterday morning near Roanoke Rapids. If I would have known you were passing by I could have been standing along side of I95 and given you a high five on the way by! :)
