Feb 19, 2011 - Carson's Birthday

We left Florida February 10. We made one stopover at the same campground in Yemessee, SC that we stayed at on the way down. We arrived back at the Thousand Trails campground in Lexington, NC Friday afternoon. We hated to leave the warm weather behind, but at least it wasn't snowing in North Carolina. We spent the evening at our son's home celebrating his father-in-law's birthday. The next day was our grandson's birthday and we attended his birthday party. The theme this year was Thomas the Train and he had about a half dozen little friends...

Dec 27, 2010 - Christmas

Our stay in Mocksville was cold. We had a lot of nights below freezing so the water spigot in the campground was frozen. Therefore we had to use our fresh water tank.

Dec 5, 2010 - ACC Championship

Our first stop was Forest Lake Thousand Trails near Lexington, NC. We went to the ACC Championship game in Charlotte, NC. It was snowing when we left the campground, and it was cold at the game. But Virginia Tech beat Florida State 44-33 and will be going to the Orange Bowl. Since Forest Lake is only opened on weekends in winter, we moved Sunday morning to Myers Lake Resort in Mocksville where we'll stay for the month of December.

Sep 1, 2010 - Thomasville, NC via Appomattox, VA

WED 1 SEP. We travelled from Charlottesville to Thomasville, NC via Appomattox, VA. Appomattox as you probably know is the site of General Robert E Lee’s surrender of the army of northern VA to General Grant. One of the things I’ve done this year is to buy a National Park Passport. It’s a little guide book to all of our national parks that provides a space for a validation stamp from each park. I know this is a little hokey but it does focus attention on where the parks are and helps me to remember to see them if in the area. So far, we’ve...
