Being stuck in one place has been getting to us. As much as we like being close to the boys, we needed a chance of scenery. As good as campfires are,
and as good as S’mores taste,
sometimes it’s good to move on.
I really wasn’t sure if the Journey’s engine would even start, let alone if the wheels would roll. But it fired right up and felt like it, too wanted to move.
First I had to stop at Tractor Supply Company.
I needed to fill the Journey’s propane tank, it was getting pretty low.
And this is why I stopped there.
Next we hooked up the car to the Journey, I even remembered how to do it correctly, but I double and triple checked myself before rolling.
Of course as we traveled down the highway, we hit drenching rain. So much for my nice, clean motorhome and shiny wheels.
Despite the rainstorms, the Journey ran like a top. I got the best mpg ever since we bought it: 9.1 mpg. That is amazing, figuring that usually I see only 7.5 to (if I’m lucky) 8 mpg. I guess no wind and nice smooth flat roads had a lot to do with it.
So where did we go? Could this be a hint?
Nope, not New Orleans, but for some reason, they sell this here:
Charleston, South Carolina. The city market. Lots of vendors selling all kinds of expensive (really expensive) items, from hand woven baskets,
to all kinds of prints, trinkets and souvenirs.
We spent the afternoon walking and driving around sightseeing.
We’re staying for a few days at the Charleston Air Force Base FamCamp. It is really nice, full hook ups/50 amp campground for $20/night.
We were escorted to our site by the Camp Host, who took great care of us.
We’re enjoying the change of pace and change of scenery. Sort of a vacation from staying in one place so long. We’ll make the most of it. :c)
