Nov 9, 2019 - Selma, NC

This is another first time park for us and I think this one is a keeper! The park is flat, dry, and well laid out. It has a hokey name: R-Vacation. There are lots of services around here, like restaurants and stores. We went out for dinner to the Outback.

Oct 19, 2017 - Selma, NC

We arrived at the RVacation RV Park in Selma, NC for an overnight stay. This is a first class park with nice pull-thru sites with large covered concrete patio and lawn furniture. The park is so nice that we are encouraged to stay longer but the this is also a high priced park, so one night will do the trick.

Oct 6, 2017 - Overnighter

Today was mostly transit further south. We ended the day at RVacationland Campground, a place where we've stopped many times. It's not fancy, but it's convenient. Right off I95, but not too close. There's a nice lake next to the campground that offered some nice photo ops last night at sunset. We also met a couple from Hawaii that have moved back to the US and are traveling around in an old rented Winnebago Chieftain. It made for some interesting conversation. The guy worked as a truck driver and crane operator on Maui before retiring. I...

2017 Autumn Outing

May 20, 2016 - Moving North

We traveled under gray skies with some light rain today. Temperature stayed in low 70s and we really enjoyed the cool weather sitting outside at the campsite. Our drive from Charleston was uneventful and traffic was heavy at times. We continue to observe that most drivers do not have a clue on how to enter the freeway. Our only issue with the RV in Charleston was the low hanging trees all along the surface streets leading to the campground. After our big meals in Savannah and Charleston, we enjoyed, grilled chicken, mixed vegetables, and...

Oct 14, 2015 - Selma, NC

We are getting close to the end of this journey. Just ask Linda, she will tell you just how close. After making all the changes to the itinerary over the weekend things started to improve in Charleston but the changes were just that and we were not going to flip flop anymore. We departed Wilson, NC on Monday and had a great 27 mile run to Selma, NC where we stayed for two days. Great campground there, close to a bushel of antique shop and some friends from our USAF assignment at Ramstein AB, Germany and who I also worked with at Grumman...

Jul 25, 2015 - Historic Selma North Carolina

After going to a Farmer’s Market, we drove to Selma. Now over 15 years ago Selma was a dying town, the town embraced Antique stores, they started to thrive. 10 years ago we last visited Selma and there were 10+ restaurants and 20 t0 30 antique stores. Now there are only two cafes that only serve sandwiches and one of the cafes also serves steaks. and there are lest than 5 antiques stores. They town is again dying, it is a shame, a real shame.

Feb 25, 2015 - Waiting for Another Snow Storm

We moved further north today. We stopped at RVacation Park in Selma, NC. We've stayed here quite a few times in previous trips north and south. Our route today started on I20, but I left it and got on US 15 and US 401. Ac couple of interesting things to see along the route. Bishopville is the hometown of "Doc" Blanchard, the first junior to win the Heisman Trophy in 1945. He was "Mr. Inside" to Glenn Davis who was "Mr. Outside" at the US Military Academy. He graduated in 1946 and had a successful career in the US Air Force. In the Vietnam...

Nov 5, 2014 - On the Road to Georgia

We left RVacation park this morning at 9:30. We had a better night's sleep compared to our Walmart stay. We originally planned on staying at a park about 9 miles further south in Four Oaks but when we got there it was a run down park. We changed our mind right away after seeing it. We drove through the driveway and right back out. That's when we went back to RVacation. We saw it when we drove by on the way down and could see from 95 that it was much nicer. It was right by 95 but we didn't hear much road noise after running a fan all...

Florida 2014-2015

Jan 9, 2014 - On this Day Nothing Happened

I don't know if you ever seen one of those signs that reads "On this day in 1867 nothing happened here". That's kind of the way today was. Today’s route started out on I95, but once we passed by Richmond, we went over to US 301. Even though there are occasional traffic lights, it’s much more relaxing than driving on I95 and the pavement is generally smoother. US 301 starts right near home in Glasgow, DE and runs some 1,099 miles to Sarasota, FL. It pretty much runs parallel with I95 in southern Virginia and North Carolina. The area is...

Dec 2, 2013 - Selma, N C

It was a rough morning. Brad doesn't deal well with things not being "right".....as many of you well know. We didn't get off until close to 11:00 a.m. and of course the traffic was very heavy heading south on I-95. We hit several spots where traffic slowed practically to a stop but it did keep moving. We made it down to Selma, NC in relatively good shape - at least we were in before dark. We have a very nice site overlooking a small lake and I-95. The noise from the highway doesn't bother us at all and we enjoy looking at the water and...

May 3, 2013 - RVacation Campground

Back to our favorite area here in the SE. Familiar campground, area and lifestyle. Weather is still below seasonably temperatures but its dry lol. Met with friends from our previous visit and Randi went house hunting with the other lady today so I got to do laundry and had a nice bike ride this afternoon. Invited neighbors over for a steak dinner and then went downtown for 2 huge dollops of home made ice cream yummy. Heading out in the morning for points south after we go out for a mom and pop diner breakfast on a Saturday morning always...

Away we go 2013

Apr 15, 2013 - RVacation campground

Well after 3 beautiful days in East central N Caroling we feel rested and at home. This is the 4th time at this park and we love it here. In fact we are extending another 2 days and then head for the coast for a visit. Day one required heading to JR's discount store. It is like a Liquidation World but huge. They have a cigar section that is 100X200 ft long with every imaginable stogie available for sale or have one in their seating area and its all inside no less. For Wayne I can buy Canadian smokes here for 10 bucks a carton less than at...
