Nov 5, 2018 - Cross Winds Family Campground (10/28/18)

We left Baconton on Sunday morning heading to just north of Charlotte, NC for the night. It should have been a pretty easy drive being mostly interstate. The route took us through Charlotte and it would have been an easy drive except that we hit the 'perfect storm' of traffic. Up until we got into Charlotte, everything was a breeze. We had taken a route we hadn't before, across Georgia, and it was a great 4-lane highway. As we got into Charlotte several things came together in a not-so-good way. The Bank of America Stadium where the...

May 19, 2013 - Crosswind campgrounds

Slow trek north has begun. Packed up and away from the track this morning. leisurely 50 mile jaunt up the road thru the rolling hills off the interstate for a change. will point for Tennessee tomorrow and see where we end up. I guess summer is here as they have the pool open now. See Illinois is still getting snow wow not for me along with the hurricanes going thru the south central part of the country. Not a lot to report today so will sign off for now and hope enjoy their long weekend off.

May 13, 2013 - Cleaned and ready to go

After a very nice 2 peaceful nights of sleep laundry and touring about a couple of the local towns off we go to Charlotte Motor speedway tomorrow. We had intended to stop in Fort Mill for a couple of days but upon arriving the actual campground didn't quite match the description in the book so we moved a little further north to a park we did like/ Randi found her favorite clothing shop here so the clothes cupboards a little more full today, she and Karen had a great day shopping so we topped it off with a big meal at Outback restaurant...

May 6, 2013 - Monday- May 6 - Travel Day

Not much to report. We left Williamsburg this morning, heading SE to try and find a place where the weather would be better. Trying to dodge the rain. Drove through rain for most of the day. Parked now in Cross Winds RV park in Linwood, NC, between Charlotte and Greensboro. We'll stay here a few days and find places to see. Dry and sunny this evening. No photos this time. My High School Class Reunion is on May 18th near Gainesville, GA so we are gradually making our way there before returning home to Foley about May 20th.

Apr 30, 2013 - Homeward Bound - Slowly

Today's route followed US 70 and it was pretty uneventful for the most part except at the end. We decided to pull in early this afternoon and had set the GPS for a camp ground just north of Salisbury, NC. We jumped onto I85 for a short run across the Yadkin River and took the first exit across the river. The GPS wanted us to turn onto Old Salisbury Rd. to get to the campground. The only problem was that the road had been closed off by new construction around the exit. We had to drive on by. Once the GPS recalculated it wanted us to go 6.5...

Apr 12, 2013 - Crosswinds Family Campground

Ah the life, we have slept like babes in the woods since arriving here, wait a minute we are in the woods. Weather has been super, mid 80s had a real nice rain overnight that wetted down all the pollen and dust and cleared the air of the humidity. Will be hitting the road tomorrow to visit another park we have been at before a little further east toward the coast, hopefully to spend a few days there next week. Got the engine coolant topped up as somehow the overflow tank cap had disappeared if it was there to start, glad I found this one...

Oct 1, 2012 - travel day

I cannot believe it's already October 1st.!!!!! Traveling north - traveling home. It doesn't seem possible it's over - it has been a great adventure. Lousy travel day - rain, rain and more rain. We needed to be in a real campground tonight - not a truck stop. "Are you ready for some football?" !!!!!!!!!!

May 11, 2010 - Off to Tenn

Had engine lite checked and looks like we just had a bad tank of fuel, no problem since. Ran the back roads around Charlotte, didnt see a single moonshiner. They are all at the races. Mom and Pop Chinese for lunch very nice. What is a Royal bank of Canada branch doing in Wadesboro North Carolina first we've seen this trip. Off to Childress race shop tomorrow and then on to Tenn as that is where our computer is being delivered. Lots of neat pix of the #3. May 12 Did some mountain driving with the Motorhome, not recommended ever again Yikes....
