Stop #8 – Lake Fairfax Park, Reston, VA

Mid-week jumps are not ideal.  Since Billy records all day long, not only does he have to stop working, but it’s kind of a pain to pack everything up.  Most things in the bus are permanently secure, but there is still a fair amount of stuff that needs adjusting before we take off each time.

Camping Weekend

So technically every weekend is camping weekend for us now, but I’m referring to an annual tradition we have to camp at Pocahontas State Park with three other families.  It was definitely different this year since we weren’t tent camping!  We couldn’t get sites that were right next to each other, so we had to settle for being on the opposite side of the camp store from the others.  It was wonderful to see our friends!!!

Birthday Boy

I’m glad we caulked the roof, because for the next few days it rained on and off.  Billy’s dad came down from Front Royal to stay with us, and we had such a great time.

Stop #6 – Pocahontas State Park

Ahhh, home.  Kind of.  Not really.  But close?  It did feel a little like a homecoming, since obviously most of our friends and family are in Richmond.  Upon reaching Pocahontas State Park, we had some leaks to repair.  When our bus is completely level, we end up with some leaks inside the coach.  When we lean ever-so-slightly to the front right, all of the AC condensation comes off the roof and drips off the side of the bus, near the door.  I’m not fond of the dripping right near the entrance, but it’s a whole heck of a lot better than dripping inside on my couch!

Stop #5 – Floyd, VA

Floyd, Virginia.  I get you.  With your crisp mountain air and clear sunlight you are beautiful.  If I didn’t love the beach so much,  I could get pretty hooked on this town.  A picture perfect sunrise over the mountain trees every morning and sunset every night.  Makes it easy to forget I hit a curb and took out the muffler to get to you.  And when checking the muffler, watching every rivet fly  off the bay door one by one and fall to the ground;  makes me laugh as I climb your windy roads.  I’d also like to give a shout out to the bungee cord.  I owned a total of zero before buying a bus.  Now I’m the proud owner of at least five.  What can’t these things do?

Exploring

Despite the heat, we’ve been out exploring a lot.  We found the waterfall Sesquicentennial is known for, along with some pretty rad climbing trees.

Stop #4 – Sesquicentennial State Park, Columbia, SC

And just like that, it was Saturday again.  Time to say goodbye to Myrtle and start (slowly) making our way back north.

Stop #3 – Myrtle Beach (Again)

Toward the end of the week at MB Travel Park, we had some traveling arrangements to deal with.  We had booked a week in late June at Coastline RV Park (just south of Tallahassee), back when we had no idea what we were doing 🙂 The plan was to try and make it to the St. Augustine area with the next move, putting us within easy driving distance of the new park, however that left us with quite a distance to get back to RVA by the second week of July.
