The second reason? We had that elusive and hard to find...tailwind! Almost all the way here. It sure was nice to see my mpg readout on the dashboard computer going up to higher numbers for a change. I finally found the road engineers built to take advantage of the tailwind. :c)
We're here with a bunch of really great friends for the second annual Carolina Clan Gathering (CCG). Some 23 couples are already here, with a couple of more still due in tomorrow. A few folks we've never met before, others we got to know through the RV Dreams rallies over the last couple of years and have become almost like relatives, keeping up with each other's travels via their blogs.
Tonight, we had a gathering around the campfire, the group was so large we had to have two campfires going at the same time. Lots of talk, stories and laughter. To say it was fun is an understatement.
Tomorrow we're planning on the great CCG regatta. Looks like we'll be yachting in our Sea Eagle inflatable boats on the Intracoastal Waterway, about a dozen boats are going.
Hopefully all goes well and we don't get into any trouble where we'd have to call the Coast Guard to come and rescue us.
I'd find that a little embarrassing...
