Where Else When Everything Fails?

We departed this morning, picked a direction and head out in the Journey.  Zoe, the Wonder Dog, included.  Today we thought we'd head West, then South, and run down Rt 81 through the Shenandoah Valley.

First stop was Walmart in Woodstock, VA, to pick up a couple of items.  $250 later, we wheeled the cart out to the Journey.  In all fairness, we picked up some nice Christmas presents for the grandkids.  Yes, it's that time of the year again.

Pulling out of the Walmart, we took a two lane road that parallels Rt 81, enjoying the scenery and small, historic towns.  As the day wore on and the Christmas music began to repeat on the CD player, I decided to stop at a nearby campground, Endless Caverns.  After driving down the entrance road, we found it was closed for the season.  Bummer, we've heard good things about it.  So off we went back to Rt 81 South, determined to stop at the next campground for the night.

After driving for almost an hour, we found the next campground, a Good Sam CG...closed!  Hmm.  With it getting late in the day, heading further South with no real plan wasn't a good idea, an about face and back to the North to the same Walmart we stopped at earlier.

After getting permission, we set up for the night.  We're comfortable in the Journey and grateful that Walmart is a welcoming place to stop for the night. :c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. I love it! You got away for the weekend, got some shopping done and had an adventure in camping! Sometimes I find myself thinking that I can't believe how separate the inside of The Jazz can feel from the environment on the other side of the walls.

  2. Doesn't really matter where you stop since you have your house with all your stuff in it wherever you go! Close the shades and pretend you've got a lakefront view :) Gotta love the RV lifestyle!
