We are in Myrtle Beach, SC, at a KOA, no less! We chose the KOA based on its nearness to the conference which Marti is attending.
We normally avoid KOAs because not only are they very expensive, but they seem to pack as many RVs in as they can.
The Myrtle Beach KOA is very different and we were happily surprised. We are in a large FHU site, nicely landscaped and shaded, with plenty of room between sites. Not something we've experienced before at a KOA. The trees help the area to stay cooler and quieter. We're liking that, too.
Yesterday, after we arrived, we took a test drive to the conference location to see how long it would take for Marti to drive there. We stumbled across an RV resort almost next door that we hadn't known about. We stopped at it and got a pass to drive around for a "look see".
Sardines have more room in their can than the people have at this resort. I guess the attraction to being so close to your neighbor is the beach access. I prefer a little room so I won't have the person in the next RV reading over my shoulder as I use my Kindle.
Plus, the price was $13 more/night than the KOA here. We're passing on this place and will continue to use this KOA for our base from now on when Marti attends her annual conference.
Being here in Myrtle Beach is okay, but we're looking forward to meeting Bill and Nancy tomorrow for dinner. They've been staying at nearby Huntington Beach State Park and are leaving Wednesday for further travels, so we feel lucky to be able to visit before they roll out. You have to check out their blog and see about Nancy's close encounter with a gator.
Still writing from Marti's laptop, my laptop is recovering all the lost data and files via my Carbonite program. It's sitting on the dash, purring away. I was told it could take up to three days for a full recovery and it got interrupted when we drove down here, so I had to start the process all over again. I'm looking forward to getting it back on line. When you customize and get used to a computer, using someone else's is sort of like borrowing their shoes. They work, but not a perfect fit. ;c)
We leave here Friday morning and will meet our daughter, Heather at a spot on I-95. She's dropping off grandsons Andrew and Owie for our trip to Disney World. We are not going directly there, I have planned a three day trip to go the 500 miles to get there. I have two interesting stops to make along the way that the boys will go wild about. Stay tuned to see what they are.
