It was around 10 AM by the time we pulled out of Amityville. Across the good old LIE to the BQE (that’s for all of you NYC folks) down the NJ turnpike, across Delaware, around Baltimore by crossing the Key Bridge, around DC to the Elks Lodge in Woodbridge VA. Boy, talk about a run on sentence.
We stayed one night in the Elks Lodge parking lot.
The next morning we moved to a camp site about 5 miles away and took a tour of the Manassas Battle field. The north calls it Bull Run, the South calls it the First Battle of Manassas. A few months later the there was a second battle.
On Tuesday we made it to Florence, SC. We stayed in a Wall-Mart overnight. We decided to make a run for it, so down I-95 we went. Across the rest of SC, GA and into Florida. Around Jacksonville to I-10 and then headed southwest on local roads. Five hundred (yes, 500) miles later we ended here at Bell Aire RV park at 8 PM (in the dark). With the help of some extremely nice and friendly staff here, we backed into the spot. I hooked up the up the water and electric, made spaghetti and meatballs, then we both collapsed.
This morning we got up late and went over to Ann’s sisters house, Fran and Rick, to have breakfast (actually, Ann Called Fran last night and invited us for a pancake breakfast and they obliged!).
Basically today we are just chilling out.
See you down the Roan Road…
