May 8, 2018 - Farm Country Campground (4/30/18)

Our second day on the road to Virginia Beach. We hit a couple of road work snags, but otherwise it was a nice ride. We stayed here last year on April 20th. We like it because just across the road is a cool place called Deadwood. They have a great restaurant and we were looking forward to eating there. Unfortunately they are closed on Mondays. Oh well... Tim asked the owner of the campground about a place to eat and he recommended The Hitch'n Post, about 7 miles away. It was a great place!! Our next stop will be Little Creek Campground.

May 2, 2017 - Farm Country Campground (4/20/17)

This is a brand new campground that is literally in a field looking out over a field to be cultivated. It has a very nice bathhouse and was very quiet. It was great for what we needed for the night. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but right across the street was a cool place called Deadwood! Deadwood is a small 'amusement' park. It is built to look like the old west. It has an ice cream shop, general store, putt-putt, a small train that rides through the park. In the back is a really cook restaurant. It is built like a log lodge and is...

Jul 3, 2014 - Mandatory Evacuation

We had just finished the dinner dishes and Joe had taken Foxy for a walk so we were ready to settle in for the night when a knock came to the door and the gentleman handed Joe the County Mandatory Evacuation Notice, effective 5 a.m. We had looked at the weather radar and felt we were safe to wait until we were scheduled to check out anyway; but this put a different complexion on our plan. The traffic would probably be mayhem in the morning with everyone trying to leave the island so we decided we'd pack up and beat the rush. NC 12 which...

Jun 26, 2014 - Williamston

We had a lovely drive today, a bit hectic with heavy traffic through Durham and Raleigh but Joe pushed on through. Once we got on 64 east, it was much quieter and we stopped in Nashville........North Carolina, that is to get some lunch and a walk for Foxy. There was a Subway conveniently located near the parking area so while Joe stretched his legs and Foxy stretched her paws, I walked to Subway to get us a sub for lunch. From there, it was an easy drive to Williamston and our home for the night at a wonderfully quiet, peaceful campground;...

Nov 4, 2011 - To Williamston, NC

“How long does it take us to divert from our itinerary?” The answer is, “Not long!” After breakfast, we talk on the phone to Vicki. She and Larry will be heading south soon. It does not look like our paths will cross but we will see. Next, we talk to Marjorie. Marjorie used to live in Absecon. She now lives in Texas. John saw on Facebook that she has been in Virginia Beach this week. Virginia Beach? That is on our way south. She is leaving the hotel at twelve o’clock to catch a flight home. We arrive at her hotel at ten-thirty. For an hour...

Nov 24, 2007 - Williamsburg - Williamston, North Carolina

It was very cold overnight, and frost is on the ground. We have all our vehicles plugged in, so it is not a hard start. The skies are clear, it promises to be another nice day. We depart the campground and head for Norfolk following I-64. We need to return to Costco to get some more supplies. After the Costco stop, we head south on I-64 to Hwy 17 and follow that road into North Carolina. North Carolina is one of 13 original Colonies; in 1584, Queen Elizabeth I granted charter to Sir Walter Raleigh who started 2 colonies, which both failed....
