March 23, 2015 Travel to South Carolina

We woke this morning to rain, rain, and more rain.  But we were very blessed to have the rain stop while we dumped the tanks and hooked up the car. Smile

We continued our journey north.  Still green and very cloudy:

Many areas are swampland and designated Wildlife Refuges:

We arrived at the Francis Marion National Forest – Buck Hall Campground.  This campground is on the site of the old Buck Hall Plantation.  There are 14 sites and we were able to reserve one for four days.

Here is our site:

The intercoastal waterway is behind us, then a swampy area, then the Atlantic Ocean.  Beautiful.

After we set up, we did a few errands and just relaxed for the rest of the evening.

We have updated our travels map on the blog with this:

Visited States MAp

Yes, as of tonight, we will have camped in 48 of the 50 states.

Andy and I, separately and together have been to all of the states.  After we got the RV we decided not to fill in the map until we stayed overnight in the RV.  So over the last month, we have filled in a few of those states.  The only ones left are Hawaii and Rhode Island.  I have been to Hawaii and both of us to Rhode Island.  Andy actually worked in Rhode Island for a while.  So not sure how we will fill in Hawaii but hope to stay in Rhode Island soon.  When we look at this map and where we stayed, we realize how blessed we really are.

Tomorrow we have reservations to see Fort Sumter so stay tuned and enjoy today.

Miles Traveled: 220

Routes Traveled:

Georgia: SR-303; US-17; I-95

South Carolina: I-95; US-17; I-526; US-17; Buck Hall Landing Road
